​Valhalla instructors have completed an extensive, three-year, instructor certification program. Beginning at the intermediate phase and continuing on through black belt. We begin with an apprenticeship, warming-up classes and assisting beginners as "interns."

After one-two years, and once they've achieved their own advanced level of understanding, they may become assistant instructors, teaching segments of the classes under the direction of a full instructor. Once two-three years have elapsed and they've earned a black belt or two stripe purple belt (jiu-jitsu), they must pass the instructor certification exam.

VALHALLA BLACK BELTS

VALHALLA INSTRUCTORS

ADVANCED BELTS

While not necessarily black belts or instructors, these students have achieved a high level of understanding, equivalent in time and practical ability to that of "traditional" black belt rank. It should be noted that a purple belt in Jiu-jitsu is equivalent to the rank of 2nd degree black belt in most other martial arts systems.
