THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS FOR TESTING ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE. ALL ITEMS MUST BE COMPLETED AND TURNED IN ON TIME. THIS PAGE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. YOU MUST PRINT OUT THE ACTUAL FORM AND FILL IT OUT COMPLETELY. ALL FORMS ARE ON THE MEMBERS ONLY TEST FORMS PAGE, WHICH YOU CAN FIND BELOW. FOLLOW THE LINKS, PRINT OUT ALL FORMS, COMPLETE THE FORMS, AND TURN THEM IN ON TIME IN ORDER TO GET A PROMOTION. FAILURE TO COMPLETE ANY OF THESE ITEMS WILL RESULT IN NO PROMOTION.
ATTENDANCE- The students must average two classes per week between promotions. If an employee does not attend work, they do not get raises and promotions. This is recreational, not a job, but it is a life skill.
APPLICATION- Turned in FIRST week of the month. This allows us to order belts, have enough tape, and staff properly to accommodate the group testing.
FULL UNIFORM- Must be worn the weeks of testing and the day of promotion. This is tradition; notice, if you will, all of our Brown Belt and above students wear a full uniform. This is a physical cue to the Instructor that the student is prepared for their A-Game!
THE FIRST STRIPE/DEGREE- (For every belt) must update the contact information and new liability form for your student file, in case of an emergency.
GOALS DUE- The first week of the month of your scheduled exam. The goals do not have to be Kung Fu San Soo related. There will be THREE goals: 1) Short Term, to be accomplished within 3 months. 2) Medium Term, to be accomplished within a year. 3) Long Term, perhaps a five-year goal. All goals need a start and end date. They must be personal and unique (not what a person feels obligated to say). If a goal has been established, an update on progress is expected. If a goal changes, then share that. ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO DO THIS FROM YELLOW BELT AND BEYOND.
NOTEBOOKS- Are due at the end of class on Thursday and will be returned the following regular class. Adult and 6:00 class.
PRE-EXAM- Print your exam, do the skills, rate yourself on a scale of 1-10. A score of 1 is the lowest level of skill comprehension. A 10 is the highest level of comprehension. Turn this in with your application please.
EXAM PRINTED- Name filled in and all information done. This is your actual test! Upon completion it will be put in your student file and returned to you when you achieve your BLACK BELT!
*If you are a minor in the Adult Class, the Junior Class requirements apply. No EXCEPTION! The privilege that you have earned to be in the adult class is a gift. The adult requirements are not limited or lighter in any way except on test preparation. They have moved beyond high school, usually have families, and surely hold down a job. Without exception for the last 30 years, the adults value their time and train harder than any other group of students in the school.
**IF you cannot do this outline and/or would prefer to take the exam privately or semi-privately that can be arranged:
White Belt through Yellow Belt THIRD STRIPE......$150.00
Green Belt Through Brown Belt THIRD STRIPE....$300.00
BLACK BELT AND BEYOND ALL EXAMS ARE PRIVATE.
All requirements are due the first week of your exam month, no exceptions. Nothing is due after that for the exam at hand. Students submitting late and/or incomplete materials will not be promoted. This policy ensures staff adequate time to organize such an event and recognizes those students who demonstrate their dedication and commitment to earning their promotions by ensuring they complete requirements in full and on time.
The promotions will be held the THIRD Saturday of the month at PhD Martial Arts at 12 P.M. unless announced at the beginning of the month (3 weeks notice). The week before promotions, during class time, students will do their fitness requirements, techniques and forms.
