First, congratulations are overdue for our newest students Aditi Ghosalkar and Max Curie! Additional white belt testing opportunity is available at the end of class for any remaining new students.
Belt Test Information:
The end of the semester belt test is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th followed by a club potluck dinner. If you plan on participating and being evaluated for the next belt ranking please let me know either in person or via email by November 27th so that I make sure to order enough boards and supplies.
Tentative Belt Test Schedule (Exact Location is still TBD):
- 10:00am – 10:45am warm-ups and basic kicks
- 10:45am – 12:15pm lower belt testing (white & yellow)
- 12:15pm – 12:30 [time permitting black belt demonstration/board breaking]
- 12:30pm – 2:00pm higher belt testing
The belt testing fee is $10 and this can be paid in cash, check or electronically on the day of the test. The fee covers boards, belts, and other testing items. If you are re-attempting for the same belt level there is no fee required.
Other Belt Test Items:
Please review the techniques for each belt rank that will be evaluated during the test on the club website: http://publish.illinois.edu/tkd-illinois/belt-ranks/. Also, everyone that is testing should review the rules, the Korean terminology (click here for rules on our website) and have a favorite technique prepared.
Club Potluck and Location Details forthcoming…
