Gold Belt

Gold Belt practice guide

Overview

This level has a much more complicated form and students will be
challenged to remember their new moves from one week to the next. One way to keep the learning & memory is
to identify repeating patterns. Students will learn the difference between a side kick and a round kick.

Expectation

The student should be familiar with and able to perform any of the
moves of the gold belt and white belt level.

Proficiency

Must be able to do the combinations without thinking. Form must be
done with precision and consistency.

Practice

Practice 5-10 minutes 3-4 times a week is still good for this level.
You may do a combination drill. Practice your moves by saying them as you do them. Remember one of the main
goals is to memorize.

Time until next belt

Usually 3-6 months. Testing happens 3 times a year. December’s test
will be during class, April’s test will be at the tournament, August’s in class (for summer students). Set your
goals!

Combinations

  1. Front punch, side kick (bottom of foot), back punch.
