When you become a student in our school, you as a student may be very eager to get to the next rank. We have testing every 9 weeks. When you are fully prepared and meet all your requirements then we encourage you to test. It is not required to test each testing cycle. Sometimes students need more time especially as you get higher up in the ranks; it can take 2 or 3 testings before students techniques are where they need to be for testing. So remember it is not a race to get to the next belt, it is all about the training.

Black belt responsibilities; part of becoming a black belt is being a leader, and leaders set examples for others to follow. So as a leader in our school, black belts are expected to attend all school functions to both help out and support the other students. Proper attire for functions is either your Taekwondo uniform, or shirt and tie for males, a dress for females. In the event you can not attend, the courtesy of a phone call is expected.
