We've got two handfulls of students testing tonight at the academy:
Six students will test for first degree (decided) black belt! Congratulate them and wish them luck as they leave the Color Belt corps! Should they continue as Black Belts, they will learn the rest of shim jun.
Two students will test for their second degree (recommended) black belt. If they pass, they can try for second degree (decided) in three months. They'll also start to learn the first half of jung yul.
Four of our first-degree (decided) black belt students will be midterm testing on their way to second degree (recommended).
Each of these martial artists will test using their respective form (first half of shim jun for the current color belts, full shim jun for the others), sparring, and board breaking (one hand and one foot break of their choice).
Please come by 6:30 p.m. this evening and cheer them on! Color Belts, you're going to be here some day.
