Your Child’s first Testings
The 4 to 7 year old beginner & After school students
Dear Parents & Students:
Congratulations! Your child is ready for their first karate test. This is your opportunity to observe how well your child is doing with their lessons. These tests are geared toward helping the young beginner and afterschool student understand the concept of advancement and promotion. Because the testing requirements for the rank of 9th Gup white belt(White Belt one blue stripe) has traditionally been requirements for students from the ages of 8 and up, the Royersford Gym has implemented a 4-7 year old and after school testing program designed to help the younger student achieve their full rank of 9th Gup White Belt. There will be two tests required for the 4-7 year old student and after school student before being recommend to test for the 9th Gup rank. Gup rank. In each test, the proctor will walk the student through their testing requirements. This will give the beginner student a better understanding of the testing process and help the student understand what is required of them at testing. In addition, it is a goal-oriented process, teaching the student advancement through accomplishing goals in their day to day training.
