We believe in laying a great foundation, which is why Kids Beginner class is all about groundwork and fundamentals for an effective and impactful martial arts practice. Kids Beginner class puts extra emphasis on respect and great social skills, excellent manners, the ability to focus, and developing good body habits for mechanically sound martial arts movements. We focus our attention on each Beginner Kid to ensure they are learning well and developing the confidence to be a martial artist. On top of all of this, we are having FUN!

Kids Intermediate builds on the solid foundation already established through the Kids Beginner class. This class is for our next four belt ranks: Yellow, Yellow-Green, Green and Green-Blue.

MASTERS CLUB: Advanced Martial Arts Skills
At Asheville Sun Soo, we facilitate a martial arts practice as a life practice. As a result, it is common for our students to continue their practice as a means to provide ongoing support for all aspects of their lives. As our students enter the black belt ranks, we provide classes and curriculum for them to eventually reach master levels of practice. These black-belt-only classes, and the corresponding curriculum and culture, we call Masters Club. In these classes, we practice advanced skills in an environment where existing black belt practitioners work alongside other black belts while receiving instruction from 7th Degree Master Instructor Tony Morris, all in the continued pursuit of excellence.
We offer a Junior Masters Club class for our kid and teen black belts, an Adult Masters Club class for our adult black belts, and an All Ages Masters Club class where all black belts can practice together. A true martial arts practice is a lifelong practice with limitless improvement, learning and growth.
