Science Behind Our Method

1964 Adapted from National Training Laboratories

Our goal, for your child, is to learn and retain at least a 75% of what they learn with Black Belt Bruce teachings. According to National Laboratories, learning and retention  are increased by stacking the activities listed below. Your child will not only learn and retain these life changing behaviors but they can also potentially develop new positive habits.  

Looking at the Learning Pyramid below:

1  +  1  +  1

feature-icon-1.png

20% Retention

The average retention rate by watching a video  is 20% for your child.

feature-icon-1.png

50% Retention

The average retention rate increases by stacking on discussion to 50% for your child. This is very important for your child. 

feature-icon-2.png

75% Retention

The average retention rate increases by stacking on practice to 75% for your child. Practicing each skill everyday (through the missions) will really develop your child's new behaviors and habits.

feature-icon-3.png

75% + Retention

The average retention rate increases by stacking on teaching others to 90% for your child. If your child discusses these lessons with other children or adults then, it is possible that your child will have even higher than 75% retention of the materials learned. This is where new behaviors and habits are formed. 

Harvey J. Karam, School Founder

Karam's Martial Arts School

1973 - 2022

My father started our marital arts school (1973) in the garage of our home. For many years students came to our home to train and develop new skills to protect themselves.
We slowly grew into many locations throughout Ohio and have taught 1,000+ students over the many years.
Our family mission has always been to provide the very best and most effective techniques that students could rely on in a personal defense situation. 
Students have included Senators, Judges, Attorneys, Doctors, Law Enforcement (City, County, and State).

In 1995 My wife and I took over the martial arts school because of my fathers illness. It was then when we worked very hard to distill the martial arts transferable Character and Leadership skills into a duplicatable curriculum that could be shared virtually with all of our current students.  

Included are some of the earned recognition for our contribution in our local community.

Unfortunately, because of COVID, we had to close our physical doors and  migrate our transferable Character and Leadership skills online (without kicking and punching). This when Black Belt Bruce and Friends were born. We had our students help us to have a drawing contest to vote on the characters they liked best, we also voted on the names of the characters. This has allowed the  Family mission to live on.
