"WE ARE THE FORCE"
The A.S.K. offers the opportunity for the Advanced Junior Division students (3rd Degree Purple Belts and all Red Belts) to be a part of the Jedi Program. The Jedi program was designed to challenge those students that seek more in our organization than the standard martial arts training. A Jedi is constantly being challenged physically and mentally to do “Whatever It Takes” to achieve Greatness within their training. The Jedi program currently consists of A.S.K.’s Top 10% Elite Junior Students (Ages 5-12).
In order for a student to become a Jedi, he or she is nominated by their class instructor for the Jedi tryouts.
Jedi tryouts are held 5 times a year.
The students Selected from the Jedi tryouts have demonstrated the following attributes:
- Great Positive Attitude
- Great Physical Fitness
- Academic Excellence
- Excellent Karate Techniques
- Knowledge of Karate History
The Jedi’s have Special Classes of various Martial Arts Weapons and Self-Defense which are not offered to other students. Jedi's serve as the Honor Guard in Black Belt Ceremonies and perform at tournaments. A Jedi wears a Special Patch and T-Shirts identifying them as a Jedi.
