THE TEST DAY
Belt test consists of a list of techniques the child will perform to hit a high score to pass the minimum requirement, the child must display confidence and complete knowledge of the movements being applied.
The minimum score required to pass the test is 80 points or over. At 100 points, acing the test, the student will be awarded the belt certificate with honor and merit.
The test consists in two parts. In the first part, kids must know how to tie their belt, recite the creed and perform the mobility/strength drills flawlessly as requirement to start the test. No hints or any help are given or allowed at this stage. If the kid commits any mistake or poorly performs the movements, requiring help or hints to accomplish the technique or drill, the test won’t even start, it will be cancelled and rebooked to a further date, until the student have practiced enough to feel secure and confident to fulfill the requirements and perform highly with no doubts.
The second part of the test are the subsequent 10 questions, worth 10 points each. If hints are given, as penalty, the question still count 5 points, only three hints are allowed per question. If the instructor has to demonstrate the technique, the question will be voided.
We take ultimate pride on our teachings and reputation among the Jiu Jitsu community. We expect nothing but full commitment and dedication from our staff and students during practice and promotion tests, to insure the highest level and evolution of the sport.
