Importance of Testing

Color belt testing is tomorrow! Belt testing is one of the most important aspects of taekwondo training, and is the only way you reach your goal of becoming a black belt. Though it might seem intimidating to get up in front of the entire school, your family, and your friends, it’s an important step in your journey. Students will perform their forms, break boards, spar, and show off self defense skills learned in class. At Mueller’s Martial Arts, this is a formal and awesome event that you don’t want to miss. 

Chance to show all you’ve learned:

You’ve been coming to class for months, training hard every single day. You’ve practiced your forms, life skills, and everything else to not only become a better martial artist, but also to become the best version of yourself. It may have been difficult at times but you continued to show up anyways. Belt testing is the chance to show off everything that you have learned! It’s the chance to prove that your hard work and dedication has paid off, and the chance for you to earn a new belt. Your family and instructors want to see what you have learned, testing is the chance to show them.

Setting and achieving goals:

A big part of taekwondo is to set and achieve goals. Each student walks in on their first day with the hope and aspiration to become a black belt. Not everyone will get there. Only the people that have stayed dedicated and continue to put in the time and work will get that goal. Color belt testing is how you get there. Every three months you get the chance to earn a higher rank, getting that much closer to becoming a black belt. When you pass your testing, you achieve a monumental goal that proves that hard work and dedication pays off. You achieved a goal.

Neverending chance to learn: 

There is always something new to learn in taekwondo. Your journey is never ending until you decide to stop. Once you achieve a new belt, you set a new goal and work to get that one next. You learn new forms and new material forever. The higher rank you get the more you get to know, like sparring, weapons, and someday even becoming a Master. Testing gets you one step closer, but you never stop learning. 
Color belt testing is such an important moment in your and your kids lives! It’s an achievement that they will remember and value forever. Testing is Thursday June 27th. To learn more about our program, click here.
