Instructor — Jennette Bolden is from Los Angeles, a full time mother of 3, a preschool teacher and student. She got certified to teach Zumba over a year ago and started teaching right away.
The instructor, Greg Rubinson, is a 3rd Dan (3rd-degree black belt) in Wado-Ryu Karate under Sensei M. Shiomitsu (9th Dan, Hanshi, Chief Instructor of the Wado-Ryu Karate-Do Academy) and Sensei Tyrone Pardue (5th Dan, Chief Instructor of the American Wado-Ryu Karate-Do Academy). He has been practicing Wado-Ryu for over 20 years. His day-job is as a lecturer at UCLA, where he teaches writing and literature.
Gradings for new belts are held approximately two times per year. As a student goes up the ranks, so does the difficulty of the tests. Testing for a belt is an important part of Wado-Ryu Karate-Do as it provides a goal for students to reach, but it is important not to rush into taking a grading if a student is not ready.
At Westchester Wado-Ryu Karate, there are junior grades (for ages 6-11) and senior grades (for ages 12 and up). The junior grades wear colored belts with stripesm while senior grades wear solid colored belts. All senior grades are higher ranks than junior grades.
