Reminder: Tomorrow we will be operating under a modified schedule due to Black Belt Testing. There will be NO 11:30am Juniors Karate class. Instead, our 10:30am class will be comprised of both 4-9’s Karate AND Juniors.

Black Belt Testing

Current Black Belts MUST report to the dojo by noon.  If the curtain is closed upon your arrival, you are late… do NOT be late.

Bo-Black Belts testing for their first degree Black Belt MUST be on the mat by 1pm.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  The test will run between 3 and 6 hours, depending on the proficiency of all folks testing.

Students and supporters are welcome to watch the test from the waiting area, but we ask that you please keep the conversation to a minimum.  The test requires a lot of concentration at times, and conversations easily travel onto the mat and distract participants.

If you are a current student and would like to watch the test from the mat, we ask that you wear your uniform and enter 1 time only.  You may sit on the benches in the back (or wherever Kailen directs you).  Once you bow off the mat, do not re-enter.

Thank you, in advance, for helping us to make this test a success for all involved!  Good luck everyone!
