September Promotion Test

It is time for the September promotion testing. We hold promotion tests every three months and send out an application form with the students. We will send out the forms for September starting Monday, August 28th. We strongly encourage students to attend classes to practice form and techniques to better prepare for the test. From Monday, August 28th to Wednesday, September 13th, students are able to attend as many classes to practice. However, they must attend the class that is their belt level.
