Testings/gradings take place every quarter and provide an opportunity for all students to demonstrate what they have learnt in class.
All testings are generally two hours, even the youngest members, and the aim is to work hard, remain spirited and keep focussed for the duration. It is amazing what can be achieved when the mind is willing.
Testings are organised similar to group classes but allow time for individual assessment. Judges make notes on what is known as well as syllabus areas that need more practice.
Each student receives one-to-one feedback with an instructor in class the week after testing. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to listen in.
Progress/attitude are awarded with a stripe/tab on the current belt.
Competency of the syllabus is awarded with a new belt. The more frequently a student trains the faster they will progress.
