The belt/rank testing is for all members interested from children, youth & adults.


Belt/rank major ceremonies (Tests) are held 3 – 4 times a year depending on a variety of factors such as enrollment age, rank etc. At the end of each test a belt ceremony is held and a diploma is given to passing students. All students are encouraged to invite family to observe the test.

Students should show up for a test about 15 minutes early and check in with the instructor. Students will not be allowed into a test once it has begun.

A test is the most important milestone in a students training. It is one event in which a student shows his/her “Respect” & “Discipline” gained from their training thus far. It is for this reason that tests are not rescheduled. Any student who can’t make a test will automatically be invited to the next one. As a rule, Test notifications will be given out approximately 2 weeks prior to each test so students have time to arrange their schedule. Also, minor tests are usually held on a monthly basis with Instructor discretion. 

Students should bring bottled water to the test. Please, no cans of soda. Soda can cause cramps during tests. Tests range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on age and rank. Please feel free to ask the instructor of an approximate duration of your test.

As always, your parents are welcomed to stay and observe.

Testing for a new rank/belt, the instructors are interested in the "whole child," and will support you in encouraging your child's academic effort as well. Most parents find that martial arts training bring significant academic improvement by developing better skills in memory, concentration, and following directions as well as improved conduct.

Study Up & Good Luck!
