Black Belt Hall of Fame
What does it mean to be a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame?
The Black Belt Hall of Fame is unquestionably the highest public accolade that can be bestowed upon a martial artist.
When it was first introduced in 1968, the Black Belt Hall of Fame was the only Martial Arts Hall of Fame around, others have surfaced since then, of course, but Black Belt’s has remained as the leader in terms of stature, integrity and significance.
Since its inception nearly 40 years ago, The Black Belt Hall of Fame has honored more than 200 gifted and devoted individuals for their artistry, technical skill, competitive achievement and ambassadorial longevity.
Alumni of this prestigious and exclusive club have toiled for years to preserve and pass along the history, techniques, and nuances of their particular arts.
The few who are selected each year for the Hall of Fame are chosen for their positive impact, not only on the martial arts community, but on the world at large.

A Message from Dana Abbott
Behind each and every great person there has always been a mentor, teacher or instructor to guide them on their lives' path. This is very much the case with the Japanese and the Samurai mind set.
As your teacher I can mold you both in mind and body. Practical application and physical training provided by me will strengthen your mindset. I have spent a good portion of my life in the education of martial arts in Japan. That instruction allowed me to learn from the very best of Japanese masters. These masters physically practiced side-by-side with their students, as I shall with you.
Let me be your mentor and I will instill in you proficiency with the sword whether it is steel, wood, or bamboo. It will be my job to make sure you are on the right path and continue so. Even if you are a novice or have been practicing the sword for years it will be my endeavor to ensure your posture, presence and demeanor become strong and your mind and body function together.
During my presentations, courses and teachings I will demonstrate the sword through hands on experience. You will duplicate the techniques that you observe and learn. We will then take your best attributes and polish them while correcting any of your weak areas. Upon completion of my course you will have gained the confidence and sword proficiency you seek.
