Testing Info/Updates

Testing Week

 Watch the youtube videos to view your requirements and come to class with questions!

Goal Check-in: How are your goals coming? Have you been successful so far? If not, what can you adjust to be more effective going forward? What’s getting in your way and solutions can you try?

For your Green Tape: to practice and pass off your green tape you need your free-sparring gear! For Green Belts and higher this means head gear & free-sparring boots as well as the gloves!

For your Black Tape: Remember that you need to do a Performance 25 for each of your required forms in order to get your black tape!  Watch the youtube videos to review & practice!

Sparring hours are 6 hours within the last 3 months at rank. Please know that sparring is a consistent requirement, so even if you don’t test you need to attend sparring regularly!

Safety First - Look both ways before going into parking lot!

With so many people coming and going it can get pretty hectic. Cars may not be able to see you, so be safe!

No Peanuts Please!

We have students who are severely allergic, so don’t bring peanuts to BST and wash your hands if you ate them earlier. Thanks for keeping each other safe!

Bring a water bottle to classes!

To be able to get a drink during class, make sure to bring a water bottle with your name on it!

We have a Bike Rack at BST!

Please bring a bike lock, and remember to take bikes home each night!

PONA

(Parents of Ninjas Association)

To get involved talk to the Front Desk!

No shoes, food, or non-water drinks on the mat!

Help us take care of our training space and keep it clean!

We always bow when we go on and off the mat.

This shows respect and gratitude for our training space.

Remember to show respect by saying "Yes Ma'am/Sir"

A huge part of showing respect is acknowledging when someone has spoken to you!

Pushups: consequence not punishment

Consequences are a fact of life.  We like pushups because they build the core muscles we need to excel!

Keep your hair out of your face!

This shows confidence and improves your technique. No hats or full-head coverings please.

Check your rank when you sign in for classes!

Make sure your attendances are counting for your current rank.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

 

Do NOT Enter BST if you have any of the following symptoms:

Cough

Fever

Runny Nose

Any other Flu-like symptoms

If you are feeling unwell or are worried you may have been exposed to covid, please do not attend classes until you are sure you’re not contagious.  

Mask Policy:

The CDC has lowered the mask mandate in most businesses. So they will not be required at BST. However, masks should be worn if you have slight symptoms like the sniffles or a lingering cough. They should also be worn if you know you’ve been exposed until you know you are not contagious. If you have symptoms of COVID, you should stay home.

Thank you for your support and understanding. We are blessed to have wonderful students who look out for each other, and we’re grateful for all you do!
