Things to remember when you test
Don't forget to study the Knowledge part of the test. The skills are important, but you also need to answer the questions that the Sensei testing you asks.
THINGS WE LOOK FOR
Correct Stance - Heels down weight centered, Keep you head up eyes toward the target area Don't lean forward
Tight fists - The hand not doing the technique should be on your hip - Correct punching, blocking, kicking positions.
With each rank more improvement is expected. For example Yellow stripe your stances and techniques should be improved over 2nd stripe test.
We are aware of how hard you are working and paying attention in class. It is important to work hard and give a good effort every time we workout. Not just on testing nights.
When we test a student, one of the considerations is how hear they have been trying during past classes.
The Sensei's will tell you when you are ready to test
It is common for us to do a pre-test before an actual test. This helps insure your success during the real test.
Try not to be to nervous when doing your kata or technique during testing. We have watched thousands of kata's and we want you to do good. If we didn't think you were ready we would not have tested you.
