Next Testing Date:   Friday, April 20, 2018 - 7:15 PM

Written Test (Online) : Thursday, April 19, 2018 - All Day

 

When am I eligible to test for my next rank?

  •       Time-in-grade All students are required a MINIMUM of 4 months at their current rank before they can test for their next rank. Check your next available testing date below.   

  •       Training Points AFTER a student has fulfilled their minimum time-in-grade at their current rank, they must then earn a MINIMUM of 30 training points. Training points are earned each night in class where a student can receive .5 points for good effort in the promotion part of class, .5 points for a good effort in our fitness circuit and .5 points in our third section of class, (usually sport).  Reminder that a total of 1.5 points per night are NOT guaranteed. Effort determines the points earned as well as coming to class late or leaving early can also cause a reduction in the points earned. Check your point total below. 

  • Once you have fulfilled your time-in-grade and your point requirement, check your status, scroll down to your name to see the test information.  Make sure to read ALL of the "Promotion Testing and Etiquette" section below to become familiar with our testing procedures.

Promotion testing information and etiquette:

  • Arrive at testing at least 10 minutes early to make sure you are dressed and ready for the proper starting time. Arriving late can cause you to be scored incomplete on material missed. DO NOT arrive late. If the test has already started, you will be marked wrong for all material that you have missed.

  • Please pay the appropriate testing fee on or before your scheduled testing date.

  • Wear your traditional uniform and belt for all tests unless otherwise noted below. T-Shirts are not permitted as acceptable training uniforms for testing.

  • For testing students and for spectators attending to watch the test: When testing is in progress, please remain quiet. When your test is complete and you have been dismissed, you may either stay to watch additional testing or leave. Either way, please respect the students still testing by remaining as quiet as possible at all times.

  • If you are unable to attend the scheduled rank advancement test, please inform Rising Sun prior to the test.  You will be able to take the test at the next month's testing date, or you may schedule a private lesson after the scheduled testing date to take your test. Please be reminded that if you choose to schedule a private lesson, there is a private lesson fee of $25 per half-hour lesson in addition to the testing fee. (Some higher ranking tests may take longer than 30 minutes).  If you choose to wait until the next month's testing date, your rank advancement test for your next rank will coincide with the date of your test and NOT your previous scheduled time.

  • Remember, this is a test! Effort is the biggest key to success in this test.

  • Important reminder:  You may NOT test for your next rank unless you are an actively training student. This means that if you currently taking a break for one month, or longer, you will need to wait for the first available test AFTER you return to training. Also note that taking a break for one month will not affect your current points. Taking more than the allowed one-month take-a-break will result in the following: 1 additional month = minus 10 points, 2 additional months = minus 20 points and 3 or more additional months = minus all earned points.
