Black Belt Club – July 1st

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Black Belt Club will be meeting from 5:00pm-6:00pm on July 1st, 2009. Mr. Kreinbrink, II Dan needs to attend a town hall meeting to listen and discuss community issues for 2009-2010. The following week, the regularly scheduled time for Black Belt Club will resume.

What are your priorities?

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Students who attend black belt club only and choose not to attend classes are not paying for a class. If you are planning to test for your black belt then you are responsible to learn the required material. The best way to learn is to attend class. Do not call your instructor (or have your parents call) to let me know that you have prioritized something instead of learning the material. Otherwise you have just told me that you have other priorities. Enroll in class, learn the material and take the test.

Afterwards, the Black Belt Club met and stripe testing was held for those getting ready for black belt. Black Belt Club meets on Wednesdays 7:00pm at the Sheridan Rec. Center. Students interested in attending should be Brown (and above) and pay regular facility use. Currently, there are 11 students preparing for 1st degree and 2 preparing for 2nd degree. For those working towards 1st degree, there are five colored belt stripes.

White – Paper turned in.
Yellow – Chung Mu form
Green – Testing experience (watching from tester’s perspective)
Red – Basics
Blue – All Forms (4 Directional Punch to Chung Mu)

The next stripe testing will be held after the next belt test. The next test day is planned to coincide with the Forms in the Park event. Forms in the Park is tentatively set for July. Last year, we demonstrated at the Sheridan Bash Barbeque following Forms in the Park. If people are interested in doing a Barbeque let Mr. R. Kreinbrink, II Dan know by June 12th.
