BLACK BELT INTERNATIONAL

A place where martial arts enthusiasts can meet the experts

Founder(s): Rebecca Kane

Date founded: December 2005

Brief History:

A mixed martial art. Mostly originating from Freestyle Karate, Filipino Martial Arts, Traditional Karate, and Thai Boxing.

The style caters for students who wish to compete as well as those who just wish to learn a self defence based martial art.

The Kombat Karate style offers a pre-school programme called Little Warriors for children aged between 4 and 7. This is a badge system rather than a belt system, as it is understood that a full belt grading would be too stressful for a child so young. The badges make give the child a greater feeling of achievement as they can work on one technique at a time.
