It has been decided to combine both the Black Belt and the lower belt tests due to the fact there are not as many testing as we had originally thought. The September Test will be Friday September 7th at 7:00 pm. Please make note this is the first Friday of the month as our tests are usually the second Friday of every month.
At this time, 3 Black Belts are still attending the Black Belt classes for recognition to be apart of the September test. They are:
Mr. Mark Bettes
Mr. Luan To
Mr. Dick (Scott) Legus
I invite you all to attend this coming advance promotion test. Mr. Frank Babcock will be flying in for the test and to celebrate Mr. Saum's promotion to 6th Dan. More information will follow.
As it stands right now we have the Black Belt test scheduled for September 7th at 7:00 pm and the lower belt test scheduled for September 14th at 6:00 pm. Originally we were looking at 6 Black Belts testing with an award ceremony for Mr. Saum's promotion to 6th Dan Black Belt. Currently we have only 3 Black Belts still looking at testing and we will not know exactly how many will be testing until later this month.
There is a possibility depending on how many Black Belts and lower belts total will be testing that we may combine both tests on the 7th of September. Further information will be available soon.
We have decided to postpone the Hapkido seminar we were originally looking at having on September 8th to sometime this coming spring when we can put more energy in it's promotion. This seminar will be open to the public and we plan on several sister Hapkido schools from around the country attending. Please watch for future postings.
