BOARD BREAKING CLINIC FRIDAY MARCH 29
Our next board breaking clinic takes place Friday, March 29 – and we’ve scheduled TWO clinic times!
TKD Sr. Orange – Sr. Blue Belts Clinic – 6:30 p.m.
TKD Brown Belts and higher ranks Clinic – 7:15 p.m.
Cost: $20 per attendee
Can’t make the time scheduled for your rank? That’s okay – just know that the clinics will be geared toward the belt ranks listed. So, if you’re a black belt who needs to attend at 6:30p, we’ll be covering the very basics of board breaking and may not have time for you to practice your required testing board breaks.
Sign up at the front desk, in our mobile app, or register online here: http://bit.ly/WoodBustinTime
Due to the clinics, there will be no STORM Team or Black Belt classes on March 29. Black belts may attend the intermediate/advanced class on this day instead.
BE SURE YOU’RE READY TO TEST WITH OUR READINESS CLINIC SATURDAY, APRIL 6
Make sure you’re ready for testing with our testing readiness clinic!
Saturday, April 6 from 10 to 11 a.m.
This clinic is for all taekwondo students who are planning to test at our April testing. We’ll go over techniques for your forms and one-steps, sparring, and practice board breaking on the bags and targets.
Students who only need 1 or 2 stripes are strongly encouraged to attend this clinic so they have a shot at being able to test next week.
Be sure to bring your sparring gear and wear your belt, along with TKD pants and uniform. Register at the front desk, on our mobile app, or online here: http://bit.ly/GetReadyToTest
TESTING REGISTRATION NOW OPEN – DEADLINE IS APRIL 3
Students who plan on testing in April can now register! ALL STUDENTS WHO PLAN TO TEST MUST REGISTER.
All students must have 6 stripes on their belts to test. Students in our kids and teen/adult classes MUST have their rainbow stripe as one of these 6 stripes.
Students testing for black belts must test on testing day, and not either make-up testing. Students are to wear full formal uniform: jacket, pants, & belts. White t-shirts should be worn under jacket.
All orange belts & higher must bring all gear to testing.
Students & all spectators are expected to be exhibit the tenets of TaeKwonDo during testing. Failure to do so will result in removal from the premises. Students who arrive late forfeit their right to test.
Testings are divided by your CURRENT belt rank/age group – not what you’re testing for!
You will need to complete one form per student. If you need to change the time of your testing, please be sure to contact us directly, and not re-do the form.
You can ONLY REGISTER online. Please click this link to register – and do it ASAP – the deadline to register is Wednesday, April 3: http://bit.ly/FBTKDAprilTesting
