Welcome to Rising Sun Karate's Online Training Program
Before we begin, let us remind you that NOTHING beats the actual training inside the Dojo with live instructors and fellow students!
Online degree programs are not new. You can get degrees from colleges, religious institutions and even Martial Arts degrees. If you're looking for a quick easy way to say you're a Black Belt, you should probably go somewhere else.
Our program is not quick. It is not easy. It is just another way to train for those who have a passion for Karate, but just don't have time. We do realize that many people would like to train in Karate, but just don't have the time to coordinate with our Karate school's training schedules.
With this in mind, we have developed a program that would allow you to train on your own, when you can, and still receive quality Karate training and rank advancement.
This program is only available to students 12 years old or older.
Here's how it works:
Our program is divided into sessions. Each session will be made available to you on a DVD for you to follow. The DVD will provide you with Karate instruction appropriate for that session and your rank. It will give you the overall requirements and training drills to prepare you to test for the next rank.
Training will be provided for the style of Hinode-Ryu Karate by Master Chuck Hosler. Sensei Hosler has been in the Martial Arts for over 32 years and founded Rising Sun Karate over 26 years ago. Hinode-Ryu Karate is a blended style of Shotokan, Aikido, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Hapkido and is a proud member, and recognized, by the SOMA (Society Of Martial Artists) organization founded by Master Clarence West in the 1970's.
Upon completion of the required time and training, the student will then be given the opportunity to test for that new rank. Testing can be done by scheduling a time at Rising Sun Martial Arts to test in person, or the online student can test via the computer via Skype, Facebook Live or another version of the internet.
The required time-in-grade at each rank will be as follows:
White Belt advancing to Yellow Belt = Minimum of 12 weeks to test.
Yellow Belt advancing to Orange Belt = Minimum of 24 weeks to test.
Orange Belt advancing to Blue Belt = Minimum of 24 weeks to test.
Blue Belt advancing to Purple Belt = Minimum of 24 weeks to test.
Purple Belt advancing to Green Belt = Minimum of 24 weeks to test.
Green Belt advancing to Brown Belt = Minimum of 36 weeks to test.
Brown Belt advancing to Black Belt = Minimum of 36 weeks to test.
The total MINIMUM amount of training time is listed at 45 months from White Belt to Black Belt. Please DO NOT be mistaken that this course is easy and rank advancement is a given. You will have to earn the rank! Tests will be scored and if you do not pass, you will have to retake the test again at an additional expense.
Rising Sun Karate Online Training Program Cost:
Our regular tuition to train at Rising Sun is $320.00 for training an average of twice per week for a duration of 16-weeks. It takes a minimum of one year of training to advance one rank. Our testing fee varies with the rank you are testing for. All Yellow Belts through Orange Belts pay $25 per test. Blue Belt through Purple Belts pay $30 per test and Green Belts through Brown Belts pay $35 per test. Solid Black Belt tests are $50 each.
Total cost per year for training and testing is between $1,035.00 and $1,065.00 depending on a student's rank and whether they become eligible to test at the minimum training time. Be reminded that one year training time would normally advance a student one solid belt color per year.
Online training allows you to train when you're available to train. As often as you want. Online training allows you to gain rank, at your own pace at a portion of the tuition price and possibly an accelerated pace than associated with training at a Dojo.
