Belt Exam Dates
Make sure to check back on this same page periodically as testing dates can change.
Students testing for orange or yellow belt are *not* required to submit a video test.
Students testing for green belt & higher *must* submit a video test & receive video grader approval before testing at the belt exam.

Deadline to submit video pre-test is April 6th

Deadline to submit video pre-test is April 11th

Belt Exams are *invitation only* and students must be invited by their instructor in order to test. IF testing for green belt or higher, an invitation from your regular instructor to test is only an invitation to submit your test to the video grader and *not* a guarantee of being permitted to test at the actual belt exam (the video grader will confirm if you are approved to test or not based on the results of your video test). The Head Instructor will have the final say on all belt exam testing decisions.
Please note, students MUST retake the pre-test and get approval from their instructor in order to attend any make-up belt exam. Students can forget material between the belt exam and the make-up belt exam so this is a mandatory step. No exceptions.
