Always earned, never given.
That’s not just a fancy motto, a catchy phrase, or even a belief. It’s our way of life here at Emerald Karate. Each student is rewarded based on performance. Hard work and dedication is the key to success in life, and that is no different at our school.

At Emerald Karate, we believe that each student must earn their achievements through hard work and commitment, and that’s why our motto is Always Earned, Never Given. It’s in our blood and it’s not just a belief, it’s our way of life. Awards and accolades are not just handed out to students for simply showing up. This helps to teach our students to strive for success, as well as boasting self-confidence and self-esteem as they progress through our rank structure.
Because of our core values, we also believe each student must learn at their own pace. When new students join, they will first learn the fundamentals of Tang Soo Do before ever interacting with more experienced students. The speed at which a student will progress is completely up to the student and what they are comfortable with.
