Testing will be held during the weeks of February 6th and 13th.
We will hold our normal Little Kickers and Junior classes from 5:00-6:00.
Intermediate Belts Gold, Orange, and Green will run from 6:00-6:45.
Advanced Belts Purple, Blue, and Red will begin warm ups at 6:30. At 6:45 the advanced testing will begin, and run through 8:00. We may be done sooner but plan on 8:00. If you have sparring gear, bring it along.
No Leadership Team On Monday or Wednesday.
*Nights for testing will work as follows:
- Monday – Blocks, Stances, and Forms
- Tuesday – Open Gym and Scheduled Make Ups
- Wednesday – Punches, Striking, Self Defense
- Thursday – Kicks, Pads, Papers, and Combos
Both the weeks of the 6th and 13th will have the same schedule. Week one will be considered round 1 of evaluations.
Students will be evaluated with a range of “Needs Focus” to “Good” to “Excellent”. To promote, Students need to get a “Good” or better. Our Black Belts will provide feedback so students will know what to focus on. Students will have three attempts to pass their forms and combinations. if they cannot pass in three attempts, then they will have one week to fix the issues. Be prepared to go through both weeks of evaluation to get a passing grade.
Not Testing? Please attend the time appropriate for your belt rank if you are not testing. This process will feel like a regular class.
White belts are invited to join the 6:00 time slots on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
We will wrap up the process with a graduation and belt presentations on Saturday the 18th of February beginning at 10 a.m. Students will be responsible for demonstrating portions of the required elements of the test. Blue going to Red and higher belts are required to spar on Saturday, so bring you gear!
This will be a new format for us so there will definitely be some kinks to work out of the process. I look forward to your feedback on the testing process. If you are going to miss any portion of the test, please let Mr. A know so we can make arrangements for a makeup. Remember that Tuesday the 7th and 14th are make up nights!
