SKILLZ STRIPES OF THE WEEK
On Monday and Tuesday, students will have a shot at earning their BLACK stripe:
Early Skillz – Running
Basic Skillz – Fitness
Kids/Teens/Adults – One-Steps/Sparring
From Wednesday through Friday, students will have a shot at earning their PURPLE stripe:
Early Skillz – Crawling
Basic Skillz – Memory
Kids/Teens/Adults – Form – Students in our kids and teen/adult classes will need to perform half of their form without assistance in order to earn their purple stripe. They can earn a rainbow stripe when they can perform their entire form without assistance. Beginning Wednesday, we will take the students through their form without any instruction to determine whether or not they earn their purple or rainbow stripe. Students who cannot do their form without assistance or instruction during the form review will not be able to earn their stripe that day. However, beginning on Wednesday, students have a shot at earning their purple and rainbow stripes daily in class up to testing.
Forms for the testing cycle
Basic Skillz – Chon-Ji
Kids/Teens/Adults Beginners – Dan Gun
Kids/Teens/Adults Intermediates – Yul-Guk
Kids/Teens/Adults Advanced – Choong-Moo
Videos of all of the forms and our one steps can be found online at fortbendtaekwondo.com/videos
