Hello Sky Families!

June testing time is coming up, and it will be scheduled this year for June 16th-19th.

If you need to schedule an alternate testing date due to prior responsibilities or a conflict please contact our school to schedule a testing date for before the scheduled June testing dates. 

This testing will have two different available options again. 

The first option we have is in-person testingFor 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, June 16th or Thursday, June 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 uniforms and belts are required for virtual testing.

    Videos have to be sent by Monday, June 14th to Thursday, June 17th.

    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

    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.
