Congratulations to those candidates who are eligible to attend the belt rank testing, Saturday, December 3, 2011. We mindfully select students for testing based on the following,
- Date of last promotion
- Attendance records
- Minimum technical skills acquired
- Effort and attitude
- Participation in class and events hosted by the dojo
- Ability to meet or exceed individual potential
Once eligibility is met, invitations to candidates are sent by US Mail, then other items are reviewed – The Home Report and the School Report.
Candidates attend testing time based on their rank and age. Please review your scheduled time and attend accordingly.
Students who have not been identified as candidates for this testing time period are being assessed for stripes on their belt. If a student normally attends the 11 am class and are not testing this Saturday we recommend that you attend the 10 am class this week.
Testing and rank promotion days are appropriate for parents, friends, and family members to observe their karate-ka in action. It is also one of the few times during the year that picture taking and videography are allowed in the dojo.
We are looking forward to celebrating the success of those who have progressed and learning from the test itself for further development in the future.
