Hello Sky Families!

September testing time is coming up and this testing will have two different available options. The first option we have is in-person testing.

For in-person testing we request the following:

  1. Go to calendly.com/skywarrington.
  2. Follow the link and click on the testing option to schedule your belt testing time for either Wednesday, September 16th or Thursday, September 17th.
  3. Come in for testing at your scheduled time. Parents will not be allowed in the studio at this time due to limited space. Please come prepared and ready with your full uniform and belt. No gear is required.

The second option we have for our students is virtual testing with private in-person board breaking. Full uniform and belts are required for virtual testing.

Videos have to be sent by Monday, September 14th to Wednesday, September 16th .

  1. The test will be done via video submission. Students- with their parent's assistance- should record their:

    -          Ten Basic Motions

    -          Kicking Combination

    -          Form

    -          Belt meaning

    -          Breaking (In-person Friday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th)

  2. The video should be one take, no cuts, and all skills should be included in one video. You may record as many times as necessary to show everything to the best of your ability, but you may only submit one video for review. The video should:

    -           Be one take (no cuts or edits)

    -          Show the student's entire face and body

    -          Be filmed head-on, with the student facing the camera 

    -          Recorded in a space large enough to accommodate all skills, with minimal background noise

    -          Show ONLY the student

  3. Email the file of your video to skywarrington@gmail.com, send through google photo, google drive, or post your video on YouTube and send us the link.
