Testing is nearly here! This is the week that the kids have to earn their Gold Stripes and testing sheets! Adult students, if I haven’t given you your testing sheet, please let me know in class. Good luck to all the kids this week!
Testing will be held in class, at our normal class times, and during the week of the 26th (next week). Part two testing (forms, sparring, and breaking) will be held on Saturday, July 1st, at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. Students who can’t go to the Outdoor testing will finish their test in class during testing week, or the following week (make-up testing week). Saturday’s testing will begin at 10am, so please be there by 9:45am. Below is the Goffstown Parks & Rec. address for those who might need it.
155 S Mast St, Goffstown, NH 03045
During the week of testing, I would like those of you who have full doboks (uniforms) to wear them, please. Those of you who don’t, can just wear comfortable workout clothes, or speak with me about getting a uniform (if I have it in stock, it’s yours). During the outdoor part of testing, students who are testing can wear a plain t-shirt/Bulsajo t-shirt instead of their uniform top. But please wear dobok pants if you have them. Also, those of you who will be sparring, don’t forget about your sparring gear. Water and a sweat towel are also good to have for everything that is testing.
Potluck at the Outdoor Testing
Our Outdoor Testing event is also a BBQ PotLuck event and has been a success at all previous events. I am asking students and their families to please bring something to share at the event. I will post a Potluck List on our Facebook page for folks to sign up. Those of you who don’t use Facebook, need only to ask me, and I will let you know what the current list is. I will of course update it once I know what you are bringing as well. Among the things we will need, will be some portable grills and more importantly, folks to man them. Be on the lookout for the list, please.
Water Fight at the Outdoor Testing
We also have a water fight at the testing and those who want to participate should bring a change of clothes and a towel. Normally we do water balloons, but this year I would like to try something different. I will bring a bunch of “water weapons” (I don’t know what these things are called actually), and kids are welcome to bring their own as well. Parents, please speak with your kids about proper play with them, and don’t bring any super expensive toys (no pool noodles either please).
I think that is it, so, to recap:
- Testing week is the week of June 26th.
- Part two testing/Outdoor Testing is Saturday, July 1st. It will be held at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. 155 S Mast St, Goffstown, NH 03045
- Testing starts at 10am so please arrive by 9:45am.
- Those who are testing on sparring, please bring your gear.
- T-shirts with uniform pants are okay for Outdoor Testing, but full uniforms during the week.
- Please bring something to share for our potluck. Ask me for the list and or check it out on Facebook.
