6th Gup Test Prep

(Orange Belt with a stripe for Green Belt)

This is a big deal, and you should appreciate the achievement. As an emerging Green Belt, you should not only know some of the basic self-defense techniques, you should be able to execute with some proficiency.

An Orange Belt with a stripe testing for a Green Belt should be more comfortable with testing, and be able to display a balance of confidence and humility. You may still make technical mistakes - handle them with grace. The judges will cut you little slack.

Again you will be required to demonstrate basic stances, techniques such as blocks and punches, and you will have to spar. Instructors will no longer provide commands in English.

The single most important element of your this test, and this will remain true throughout your training, is to demonstrate a good attitude and respect for your instructors, your fellow students and (very important) yourself.

Don’t admonish yourself. Ever.

Always answer with a loud “Yes sir” or whatever the expected response is in your school. We expect you to demonstrate a good attitude and self confidence from the very first test. This is the single most important element of your test, and you should demonstrate these qualities in every class and test from here on.

While rarely tested, adults should also learn Self Defense Extractions #7 & #8.

Remember that the testing panel can ask you to demonstrate any material on which you have been previously tested. Practice everything you have been taught!
