The Robert Gemmell
Black Belt Family Tree

Robert Gemmell has awarded a substantial number of people their Black Sash in the various Martial Arts that he teaches.

As his teachings and involvement spans five decades the knowledge has accumulated. Therefore while he acknowledges each for their personal achievement, not all of these Black Belts learned the full system being currently taught today. For that reason a star system has been used to accredit each person with both the level and depth of teaching at the time of their particular study and their depth of knowledge attained. Each star denotes proficiency, knowledge, technical ability and is accumulative.

The star rating is independent of degree ranking and takes into consideration the traditional concept of "Inner" and "Outer" circles. This relates to the closeness to the source of learning at any given time. Within the RGMA system it is not said that all 1st Degree are considered the same despite the fact each wears the same rank.RGMA has over long years of development built a unique grading sysyem that recognises separate layers of technique proficiency. Examples of that include, 1/First level shape of a particular technique. 2/ Hard style power. 3/ Soft circular power. 4/ Combined soft / hard power. 5/ Multi extension of the same technique to weapons/ self defence/application etc. Each attribute a student develops is recognised, just as students holding Black Belts in more than one Art receive higher recognition.

The names are listed in alphabetical order and include Black Sash (Belt) levels awarded for Tai Chi / Kempo and other arts taught within the Robert Gemmell Martial Arts System.
