This Sunday, June 23rd, we will hold our Black Belt Test. Current Black Belt students need to report to the school by noon, to work on forms. Current Bo-Black students who are testing for their Black Belt need to report to the school no later than 1pm.
The Black Belt test is a milestone for the students who are earning their newest rank, or progress stripe. We strongly encourage students to stop in and support the folks who are testing — and by the end, they will surely need your support!
This test will also mark the first Black Belt Test in our new location on Black Rock Turnpike. In order to minimize distractions for the students testing, we have setup a few ground rules.
- Anyone is welcome to watch the test on the television in the viewing area. If you are doing so, please realize that conversations travel onto the mat, so voices should be kept soft.
- Students may sit along the side wall (with the targets) on the mat in order to show support – IF they are wearing their full uniform. These students are allowed one entrance onto the mat (no coming and going). Once you exit the mat, you must stay in the viewing area.
- All guests (parents, friends, siblings, non-uniformed students) are welcome to join us on the mat for the board breaks and discussion at the end of the test.
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation. We look forward to a great test this weekend!
