Test eligibility information
I am writing this to help reduce confusion over when testing occurs, and how often a student can test. The simplest way to answer is if the student brings home a test form, that means he or she is ready to test for the next belt rank.
Here are some of the criteria used to determine if a student is ready to test. The student must practice at least 8 times per month for three months. There are some minor differences for a few belt ranks, but this is the general rule. This gives the student adequate time to learn and practice new skills need to progress to the next rank. It must be noted that attendance is not the only criteria. The instructor must watch each student's performance and determine if they are ready.
In the week or so prior to a scheduled test, instructors will look to the attendance cards to see who is eligible to test. These students are watched more closely, and in some cases receive instruction separate from the main class. Once the instructor determines the student has adequately learned the new skills, a test form will be given to the student.
