Who Should Attend



Learn how to use the tenants and values of the martial arts to improve your life, your work, and your professionalism.

Course Content

Practitioners of many of the eastern martial arts such as tae kwon do and karate adhere to a code of honor. An integral part of martial arts training include learning the tenants of that code of honor. Black Belt Ethics examines the various tenets that define the martial artist’s code of honor. The course reviews each of these tenets and discusses how they can be applied in our personal and professional lives. During the course, participants will examine the tenants of respect, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, courage and community. Mastery of each tenant allows the participant to advance toward their own Black Belt in Ethics.

Individuals and corporations that adhere to these tenants are not only highly respected, they are generally quite successful. So if you are interested in learning how to live by the highest standards of professionalism and improve your chances of being successful, you should consider earning your Black Belt in Ethics.

The Black Belt Ethics Class lasts approximately 1 hour and meets the requirements of most professional registration and licensure requirements for ethics training.

Important Notes Regarding Short Courses

  • Short courses are limited in size and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and must be accompanied by full payment.
  • If you do not plan on attending the convention, a US $30 enrollment fee will be added to the short course fee. This fee may be applied toward registration if you decide to attend the convention at a later date.
  • A wait list is automatically created if a short course sells out. The AAPG Convention Department will notify you if space becomes available.
  • Before purchasing non-refundable airline tickets, confirm that the course will take place, as courses may be canceled if under-subscribed.
  • Please register well before 23 February. Short course cancellation due to low enrollment will be considered at this time. No refunds will be allowed on short courses after this date.
  • We will continue to take registrations for short courses not canceled, either until they are sold out or closed.


There are a limited number of discounted registrations available for students on a first-come, first-served basis. If a discounted space is still available, it will show up during the online registration process. If discounted spots are no longer available, you may register at the full fee; if we are able to add additional discounted spots we will refund the difference at that time.
