Though we get to experience a lot of fun times in our Waterloo karate studio, nothing beats the excitement of belt testing. Belt testing is scheduled at regular intervals and give students who are ready the opportunity to demonstrate their skills.
Like many tests, they often begin with some nervous energy as the students prepare to demonstrate months of effort and preparation leading up to the test. Students quickly find their groove as the instructors lead them through the movements and assess their skills. This energy usually shifts to excitement as students are awarded their new belts to serve as a visual representation of what their commitment has allowed them to achieve.
After receiving their belt, we help students celebrate by breaking a board and watch their sense of pride in what they have earned.
This past Friday we completed our most recent belt tests. If you are curious, you can see some of the highlights on our Youtube channel.
