Hopefully I can answer some of the many questions about tests and open the doors for more questions to be answered.
The next belt test will be held on September 23rd. We generally hold group colored belt tests every 6 to 8 weeks, however, students should test every 3-4 months. Colored Belts should have a minimum of 2 tips to test.
Poomsae is a required element at each test, as are kicks, strikes, blocks, self-defense and terminology. White belts age 7 and older are required to know Taeguek 1, white belts age 4-6 will perform Basic Form 1 (with or without help). Yellow belts and above will be tested over 1 new Taeguek and 1 new Palgwe at each test and should retain all previous forms. When testing for Sr. Yellow one should know T2 and P1, for Green T3 and P2, and so on.
The sign up sheet or the next test is on the bulletin board. Please sign up and pay the $25 testing fee 1 week in advance.

The Belt Requirements Page on the webpage can be helpful in preparing to test. It will have the requirements in .pdf format and several pictures and video to help with the different kicks, strikes, blocks and stances. (The test may not be limited to the requirements list, but also include other techniques learned in class).
