What About Testing?

Testing is comparable to a recital.  A chance for the student to perform their achievementas and progress.  This is important for their self esteem.  They are reaching their short term goals.  We take Testing very seriously and hope you will too.  

Testing cycles are about 9-10 weeks.  

Testing dates are announced in class, the newsletter, social media and on the website.

In order to Test a Student must have earned the appropriate Stripes (TKD), see below for details.  They must also have attended a minimum number of classes.

You must sign up for Testing at the Front Desk.  Doing so will make sure the Students name is on the Testing Roster, Instructors are prepared for all those intending to Test and the appropriate number of new belts are on hand.  Each Testing Cycle has a Sign Up Deadline, please sign up prior to the deadline to avoid a Late Registration Fee.
