December testing is VERY quickly approaching (the week of December 11th), that’s next week! With the YMCA having its interim week the following week, as well as us having a lot of people testing this time around, we’ll be having the second part of testing at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. December 16th. For those who don’t know, part one testing consists of basics and self-defense, while part two testing will be forms, sparring, and breaking only.
The kids testing on the 16th will start at 10am and the adult testing will start at noon. Please make sure to bring water, and sparring gear (if you do contact sparring), and be sure to wear your full uniform (if you have one). Arrival time for the kids is ideally 9:45am so we can start right at 10am. Part one testing during the week will be during normal class times.
- Part one testing = normal times during the week.
- Part two testing = Goffstown Parks & Rec. Saturday, December 16th.
- Part two testing for kids starts at 10am.
- Part two testing for adults starts at approximately 12pm.
- Bring water, a full uniform, and sparring gear.
Goffstown Parks & Rec. address = 155 S. Mast Street. Goffstown, NH 03045
Make-up testing will be on Tuesday, December 19th & Thursday, December 21st at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. There will also be make-up testing at the YMCA on Friday, December 22nd. Otherwise, make-up testing will have to wait until the new year. If you miss make-up testing, please be sure to keep up your practice during the week of Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, we’ll be taking the week of December 25th off at the Goffstown Parks & Rec and coming back to classes on Thursday, January 4th, 2024. YMCA students, it would seem there is a nearly three-week interim starting December 17, 2023, and ending January 7th, 2024. That means, I think, that the next session at the YMCA doesn’t start until January 8th, 2024.
YMCA students are more than welcome to come to classes at the Parks & Rec during the interim. See our website for the Parks & Rec Schedule.
