HOW TO EARN YOUR NEXT BELT FOR BLUE BELTS! 

In order for students to graduate onto their next belt rank, they must know their present belt curriculum. This means that the students should take the time to review the curriculum taught by the Academy by practicing at home.

Furthermore, please note that the instructors will hold pre-tests/pre-evaluation a couple of weeks leading up to the scheduled Belt Test. When a student demonstrates their assigned curriculum properly, they will receive belt tips around their belt. The student must earn 4 belt tips (details below) in order to qualify to test for their next rank. If there are questions regarding the curriculum studies, please see one of the instructors.
