Weekly Update September 30- October 4
SKILLS STRIPE FOR THE WEEK
We are in review week this week! Students who still need stripes in order to test next week will have the opportunity to earn them throughout classes this week.
Please note that we determine what stripes we’ll review during class warm-up as we assess who needs what stripes during this time. We do our best to review all missing stripes for the day, however, it is difficult to do more than two stripes per class.
Students who need to obtain stripes and aren’t able to earn them in class may want to think about setting up a private lesson. Please text Mrs. Chapman at 281-599-3331 if this is something you’d like to do.
TESTING REGISTRATION NOW OPEN – DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS OCTOBER 1
Registration for October testing is now open! ALL STUDENTS WHO PLAN TO TEST MUST REGISTER.
Our testing week schedule will be as follows. Please note that we’ve combined our taekwondo testings into 2 testings this cycle:

Tuesday, October 8, 6 p.m. – All taekwondo brown, senior brown, red, senior red, and all black belts

Thursday, October 10, 6 p.m. – Belt Award Ceremony

Registration is done online only by parents or students.
All students must have 6 stripes on their belt 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.
