Black Belts
Thru the Years

Black Belt Lineage

Since the opening of the first school, Dr. Foley has promoted 66 students that have earned the rank of Black Belt, with many being promoted as High levels including Master Level. When promoted, each student has been gifted a name that is reflective of their Journey to Black Belt. 

Achieving the rank of Black Belt at The Center for Humane Living usually requires 6 or more years of training. At the time of promotion to the rank of Black Belt, students receive a representative unique “Black Belt name” and an interpretive, Chinese kanji artwork reflecting their name. The names are selected by Grand Master Foley after careful consideration of the student’s training journey, demonstrated character and overall representative strengths and virtues.  The student’s Black Belt name is embroidered on their new black belt and their Chinese kanji is made into a signature ink stamp to authorize their signatures on promotion certificates. Students are encouraged to gather further knowledge and experience as they live the true intent of their black belt names.
