If an eligible testing candidate misses testing, now what?

December 4, 2011

Most of the candidates scheduled for testing on December 3, 2011 passed their tests, some missed,  and there are a  few students who were present that did not fulfill all the requirements to pass.   A makeup test may be available for those who missed but arrangements must be made and cleared with Shihan Joni Sharrah.   Advanced students require more time for assessment so students currently High Blue and above that missed their evalution may need to wait for the next full testing cycle to present their skills to the Board of Black Belts.  Those few students who were not able to demonstrate all the required technical skills to pass and graduate to their next belt rank are being encouraged to arrive to the dojo at least 15 minutes prior to their regular class start time,  are invited to practice at Open Gym, and strongly urged to practice at home at least 15 minutes on the off days so that when the necessary skills are demonstrated, the student will be able to complete their test and earn their next belt rank.  Each case is different so it is essential for those with questions and concerns to address Shihan Joni Sharrah directly for help in understanding the options available to you or your child.

FAQS:

What do our students and their family need to do?  They need to sign up to volunteer as time and score keepers for this event.  There is a sign up sheet on the display cases at the dojo.  They also need to register as soon as possible if they plan to participate.

Is it too late to register?  It is not too late to register, but the sooner you do, the smoother the competition day will run. 

Want to compete, but don’t feel ready? This tournament is the perfect one for you because it is a practice event that will allow each participant to get their feet wet and experience a tournament without the fear of failure.  The greatest obstacle students must overcome is the fear of the unknown, but class content has been geared toward preparing for this event, so everyone should give it a try.

We need more details or have questions not answered yet? Talk to Shihan Joni, Sensei Tony, Sensei Justin, Sempai Anel or Jan.  Each one of our staff members will try to answer your questions and help you understand the process.
