Saturday Belt Test/Potluck Reminder & Finals and Winter Break Training

Saturday, December 9th Belt Test and Potluck Reminder
Excited about the upcoming belt test this Saturday, December 9th in the ARC Combat Room. Warm-ups will start promptly at 10:00 AM. I recommend showing up at least 15 minutes early to ensure you are there on time. If you plan on testing you must be at the warm-ups, those participating in the second test might want to bring a small snack (banana, energy bar or sports drink) to keep your energy up while waiting for your test to begin. The ARC opens at 9 AM on the weekends so please set an alarm if you are not an early riser!

Also, if you are not testing please still wear your full uniform since you can definitely help out during the test by holding targets, free-sparring, taking pictures and encouraging your fellow club members. Due to the number of white belts testing the yellow-green belt testing has been moved to the second test.

Belt Test Schedule:
  • 10:00 am – 10:45 am | warm-ups and basic kicks
  • 10:45 am – 12:15 pm | white-yellow belt testing
  • 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm | yellow-green / red-high red belt testing
  • 1:45 pm – 2:00 pm | belt test promotion ceremony
The potluck will take place at my house and begins at 5:30 PM. You can RSVP on the facebook event. Things to bring to the potluck: A tasty dish, dessert or beverage to share with the club and feel free to bring a spouse/significant other. Also, if you are attending sign-up to bring an item using the shared Google spreadsheet so that everyone doesn’t end up bring chips.
No Class on Monday, December 11th 
The Shotokan Karate clubs graciously allowed us to use their space reservation this Saturday for our belt test. In turn, we have canceled our TKD practice on Monday, December 11th so that they can use the space. Belt Test results will be announced on Saturday after the higher belt test. Regular TKD classes resume on Wednesday, December 13th.
