TKD Belt Test Sat. Dec 7th, Potluck & Fall Break Training

Belt Test – Saturday, December 7th
This is a reminder that the end of the semester belt test is scheduled for Saturday, December 7th followed by a potluck. Warm-ups will start promptly at 12:00 PM. If you plan on testing please complete the following online form by Nov 30th so enough testing supplies can be ordered. Also, I recommend showing up to the ARC at least 20 minutes early to ensure you are there on time.

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.

Belt Test Schedule:
12:00 pm – 12: 30pm – warm-up and basic kicks
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm – lower and higher belt testing combined

Fee:
The belt testing fee is $10 and this can be paid by cash 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 and have a favorite technique prepared. You should be able to demonstrate your favorite technique on both sides.

Potluck:
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 game to play or spouse/significant other. Also, if you are attending sign-up to bring an item on the shared Google spreadsheet so that everyone doesn’t end up bring chips.

Fall Break TKD Training Schedule (Sat. Nov 23rd – Sun Dec 1st):

  • Saturday, November 23rd – 12pm – 2pm (CRCE)
  • Monday, November 25th – 6pm – 7:30pm (CRCE)
  • Wednesday, November 27th – NO TKD class
  • Saturday, November 30th – 12pm – 2pm (CRCE)

The ARC will be closed during Fall Break so the above training times will be held at the CRCE facility in an available multipurpose room (MPR) or racquetball court. The exact location will be shared on social media that day. The ARC reopens Monday, December 2nd and our regular training schedule will resume at that time.
