|Important: Belt Test Changes
For our entire existence as MTC we have required students to know 2 sets of forms. Although we sub- scribe to the idea that to become something great you must do something great, we discovered that ultimately in order for our students to master that shear quantity of forms their overall quality suffered greatly, and rather than continue to favor quantity over quality we are restructuring so that we can better strive toward perfection of this worthwhile skill set. So, we are excited to inform our students that colored belt Poomsae testing requirements are changing in 2 ways.
1) Colored belts will no longer be tested over the Palgwae Forms. (Black Belts will still be required to know them. More details to follow on this point for black belts.)
2) Solid colored belt tests will be over form knowledge and striped belt test will not add new forms to learn but will test students on the accuracy of each movement. Tests will follow this pattern: testing for yellow - - show knowledge of Taeguek 1 and 2,
testing for senior yellow â€” show accuracy in Taeguek 1 and 2.
