Belt Test & Stripe Test
Stripe Test And Belt Test Week: November 18th – 21st
Since Thanksgiving falls on the 4th week of November, The Dojo of Karate will be hosting their Stripe Testing on the week of November 18th to 21st.
The Belt Test will then take place on Thursday, November 21st @ 5:30 PM.
Therefore the 5:30 PM Junior Beginners and 6:15 PM Junior Intermediate will be cancelled due to the belt test. So, please make sure your student makes up their classes accordingly. Otherwise, our 3:30 PM Lil’ Ninjas Beginners and 4:00 PM Lil’ Ninjas Advanced will stay as scheduled.
We decided to move the belt test to Thursday, due to our Holiday Party and Award Banquet on Friday, November 23rd. And, with Turkey Day falling on the 4th week of November, this really puts a wrench in finding a location for our Karate party.
Please let Sensei Lozano know if you have any questions.
Stripe Test and Belt Test Week: October 28th – November 1st
October has been a CRAZY month for The Dojo of Karate and Summit Fit Dojo. From Karate tournaments to Women Self Defense classes, and many other things — October has kept us busy!
Technically, this Friday would be the last Friday of the month, thus Stripe Test and Belt Test, but with our Open House & Child Safety Class coming up on Friday, October 25th @ 5:00 PM, I’ve decided to move it to next week.
October 28th to October 31st will be Stripe Test Week, and November 1st will be the Belt Test.
As always, bring your kids twice during the week of Stripe Test week, so they can earn their stripes and potentially test for their next belt rank.
However, as you may have heard, we will be closed on Halloween for the 5:30 PM and 6:15 PM classes. And, especially having a kid that we can dress up in cute stuff, and he won’t complain — gives me more reason to celebrate Halloween this year.
But, keep in mind that the 3:30 PM and 4:00 PM classes on October 31st will stay as normal.
Belt Test will be on Friday November 1st at 5:00 PM. We recommend that you show up about 10 minutes early to get warmed up or find a good seat in The Dojo.
Also, The Dojo of Karate will be holding their Quarterly Black Belt Review on Friday, November 1st at 7:00 PM (after Black Belt Club). Once a quarter, Sensei Lozano will review his current Black Belts and make sure they are performing at their best. This is a tradition that was done in my old dojo as a child, and is something that I will be establishing in our dojo.
Our goals is to have the highest caliber students, from white belt to black belt, which is why we have belt tests and reviews.
Stripe Test and Belt Test Week: August 19th – 23rd
Stripe Test Week and Belt Test will be moved back one week due to Labor day being on September 2nd. From our experience, the Friday before Labor is not a well attended day, and we would probably have a slew of students needing to reschedule their Belt Exam. So, to make things easier, we are moving Stripe Test Week and Belt Test to:
Stripe Test: August 19th – 22nd
Belt Test: August 23rd @ 5:00 PM
Students need to make sure they practice hard this week, so they can be successful next week during the stripe testing and potentially the belt test.
Karate Classes Cancelled: July 22nd – 26th, 2013
So, as many of you know, Karate classes have been cancelled from July 22nd to 26th due to the new addition to our family — Gabriel Mason Lozano.
That week was also scheduled as Stripe Test Week and Belt Test.
Since we will be closed that entire week, we will be moving Stripe Test Week to the week of July 29th to August 1st. And Belt Test will be on Friday August 2nd at 5 PM.
Please make sure all students practice hard this week, so that we have a successful stripe testing week and belt test.
Have a wonderful week!
Stripe Test and Belt Test Week: July 22nd – 26th
The Dojo of Karate will be hosting their upcoming Stripe Test Week from July 22nd to July 25th. Belt Test will take place on Friday, July 26th @ 5:00 PM.
Please keep in mind that students must attend 2 classes during Stripe Test Week, in order to be eligible to earn a stripe. And, all Belt Testing students that earn their final stripe will need to turn in a permission slip signed by their parent(s).
If you are out of town during stripe test week, please email me in advance so we can possibly make arrangements. Not all students qualify to make up stripe test week. They may need to wait an additional month to get caught up.
Again, the Belt Test will be on July 26th @ 5:00 PM.
