APRIL BELT TEST

It was a challenging but successful online test for 24 of our karate students!  Every one of them worked hard and showed great effort.  You made your Sensei’s proud!!  Look for the belt fairies to make deliveries of the new belts over the next week or so, along with the new belts for our youngest students who ranked up in April as well.  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!

June 6th, 2020 ADULT Belt Test Information
The Chamberlain Studios Advisory Board have determined that the best course of action for the upcoming Adult Belt Test is to run it ONLINE via Zoom.
We understand that due to Covid-19 our normal training opportunities have been interrupted, and we hope that you are all well and safe at home!  We are striving to make as many ways as possible to help you in your training, and towards your goal of Black Belt through our online streaming classes, online archived curriculum, and private lessons.  However you do it, we hope that you are finding effective ways to train at home!
Our hope is that everyone is planning on testing, but because we are all separated at this time, and the instructors are not able to see everyone on a daily/weekly basis, we are requesting 2 things from those planning on testing on June 6th.

1) Send the dojo an email to: info@dallaskenpo.com and let us know you plan on testing on June 6th.  We need this email by the END OF APRIL.  We need to know our numbers ahead of time for planning purposes as we have not run this type of test before!

2) Please take advantage of the opportunity to schedule 1x 15-minute private lesson with an instructor of your choice as soon as possible, but before THE END OF APRIL (remember, you get 1x per week!).  This is your opportunity to go over your material with the instructor and for the instructor to help you prepare for the test.

What should you expect at this test? 
You know you won’t be tested on your skill as an Uke….so, be prepared to demonstrate each of your katas multiple times for different instructors, expect to demonstrate EVERYTHING required for your rank on the curriculum, and expect to explain what you are doing in such a way that shows you understand the techniques.  Instant recall is a must (you’re not going to be able to look over your shoulder to see what your neighbor is doing)!
As always if you have specific questions or concerns regarding your training or the test, please get in touch with the dojo!
