Blue Belts and above need to have a Junior Manual and bring it to class, every class. This can be printed from our website, www.austinsocietyofkarate.com, under “resources”. This is where they collect signatures to meet requirements for belt testing. They will not be allowed to test without their manual!
All students must have a mouthpiece ($3) and boys must have a cup and supporter ($10) in order to participate in sparring classes and tournament. These may be purchased from the instructor in class or from a sporting goods store.The tournament is a required event to complete the curriculum for the session. Only students who have completed all aspects of the curriculum are eligible to take the belt rank test. Separate fees are required for both the tournament and belt test. Orange Belts need to purchase footgear, Green Belts hand gear and Blue Belts headgear with a shield. If your child can’t make the tournament please ask your instructor for a list of makeup tournaments... If you have any questions please call your instructor, or Greg Beaver, atGreg.Beaver@gmail.com or call 512-773- 7307(cell). General information is available at www.austinsocietyofkarate.com.
