What Are Testings?
Testings are held for a student to demonstrate that they have achieved the necessary skills to advance to the next level or rank.
What Are The Results Of Testing?
A student advances to a new belt by learning and improving the material and skills of their current rank. Each belt, with the exceptions of White and Black, has 4 stripes. Based on how a student performs at their testing they will earn one or two stripes toward their next rank. After earning four stripes a students next testing, if they pass, will place them into the next belt level.
When Are Testings?
We hold promotional testings every two to three months.
When Should I Test?
A color belt student is required to spend a minimum of two months at their current rank before they can test, though they may spend longer. If both you and the instructor feel that you have adequately prepared to test then you should participate in the next available two month testing. Check out the student manuals for the testing requirements at each rank.
