Black Belt Club

Not many students from the Mount Allison Shotokan Karate club have earned the rank of Black Belt. This is due in part to the majority of students completing their education at MTA before obtaining the coveted belt.

The following list consists of past and present MTA karate students who have obtained Black Belt status.

Shihan David Pyke is listed here as he started his training at the Mount Allison club in 1980. Also there are a few students who earned their black belts as part of the Amherst club but also trained at MTA.
