Black Belt Candidates must have participated at a regional ATA sanctioned tournament prior to testing.

Membership in both the ATA Martial Arts Academy and the American Taekwondo Association must be current.
All students testing for the rank of Camo Belt must purchase ATA sparring gear prior to testing.

The Testing:
Be on time.  On time means early. Testing Candidates should arrive 15 minutes before their testing begins.
Uniforms should meet standards, be clean, and in good repair.
The student must wear their current belt.
Please bring sparring gear and required weapons.  Loaners are not available.
Sparring gear and weapons must be ATA spec and in good repair.

Note:  Weapons and Sparring Gear are "wear" items.  If they are broken, in bad repair, are undersized, or need replacement for any reason, it is the responsibility of the student or parent to have them replaced quickly.  If a student breaks a weapon or loses gear, it is not the responsibility of the Academy to supply a replacement.

Seating is limited...don't take up more seats that you have to.
Parents, please keep siblings seated and do not let them run onto the floor...it's dangerous.
Turn off all cell phones and video games. The students are concentrating, please keep noise to a minimum.
Flash photography is prohibited. 
At the end of the testing, all students may pose with the instructors for a photograph.

Process:
Students who pass the testing will receive their new rank or mid-term certificates after the test.
Students who do not pass the testing will be given a no-change rating.  They may attempt the test again at a later date by arrangement with Mr. Reeve.  

Please make a note of the above days on your calendar so you may keep them open.  It is important that parents and students make every attempt to attend traditional testing events so the students can proudly demonstrate their accomplishments.
