2018 Fall Belt Promotionals
2018 Fall Belt Promotionals



We will be holding our regular class schedule throughout November, with the exception of the Thanksgiving Holidays of the 25th and 26th. Colored stripe and Belt testings will continue to be held during a student's regular class times, with returning students beginning where they left off. Students Purple-belt level and above should bring any protective sparring gear they have on "B" days (Thursdays/Fridays).

Be sure and mark each protective equipment piece with initials in case of misplacement. Cloth pads can be washed and air-dried (don't dry in dryer as they will shrink). Vinyl pads can be wiped clean with wet wipes or a damp cloth. Uniforms can be washed with non-bleach whitener (bleach will discolor patches), and colored-belts should not be washed to avoid fading.

We have a Zoom camera mounted in our windowsill for a Birds-eye view for Belt testings and events. And as we have room for maybe few persons per family in our limited seating area, we can have our camera on, with the Zoom link available for all those wishing to watch.

Don't forget to place your Holiday purchase orders early to ensure delivery before Christmas!

."There is no best student, only more serious ones." --D.S. Kim

Originating in mostly unvaccinated areas, the Delta variant is more than twice as contagious, causes more severe symptoms, and has developed the ability to survive in vaccinated people. Fortunately, 99.5% of those vaccinated won't ever get very sick, and no one has yet been shown to be infected by a vaccinated person. Vaccination is 5 times more effective than natural immunity through previous infection. Children are still less likely to get sick compared to adults; however, equal in ability to contract or spread the virus. Napa's ICU bed capacity stands at 78%. Masks mandates are unchanged for those that are unvaccinated, especially in crowded, indoor public settings.

Classes you attend each week must include one class before Wednesday ("A" day) for Forms, and one class after Wednesday ("B" day) for Self-defense. If you have a son or daughter is in the Advanced youth class, then he or she must include at least one Wednesday sparring (additional class) each month to be eligible for advancement.
While Wednesday sparring classes can't replace Self-defense classes as far as material, they do count towards the minimum number of classes required for you to test, and are open to anyone who is a Green belt or higher.

Anyone may begin attending the "Teen & Adult" class upon reaching the age of 13, which is also the oldest you can be to participate in the "9 & Up" classes. The oldest you can be to attend the "Color Belt" classes is eleven (11).
