TESTING TIMES POSTED BELOW IN LEFT DROPDOWN BOX

This site was designed to help students practice the curriculum that will be on their promotional testing. This site will be a very nice site packed with information about everything from curriculum, feedback forms, testing forms, suggestions on practicing and more. Due to testing being so close around the corner, I posted what students need for the test. I will make this site much nicer and add more graphics later, but for now I just want to get the content up and running for you.            – Master Tommy Lee & ECMA Staff

Hi Parents,

Please track to make sure your child is following the Junior Creed. It’s very important that they follow it and not just memorize it. We will be adding a homework sheet in a few days for you to track their progress. Please come back on Wednesday to print out the pdf.

The Junior Creed

I promise to keep my room clean.
I promise to obey my parents and teachers.
I promise to always be polite and respectful.
I promise to tell the truth and honor my word.
I promise not to fight with my brothers and sisters or friends.
I promise to always do my best and never give up.

If you are planning on testing for your Camo Belt this cycle, please email [email protected] and address the email to Master Tommy.

I am working on  your page this Monday and Tuesday. For now, you may go to the regular curriculum page and all the Advanced Dragon Forms are already posted.

Parents Bonus Section
This section is 100% up to the parent.  You may choose to work on something that they are not doing well in terms of behavior or chores. It can also mean you would like to see them do more productive. Here are some examples…

Behavior: It could be listening, talking back, getting angry to fast with sibling and or being to wild or loud. You may have an issue with lying, saying the wrong words and or something else. 

Productive: Cleaning their room, picking up after themselves, putting their toys away or doing their chores. Productive in learning and growing with things like reading, writing, playing their instrument or practicing their Martial Arts. 

You be the judge and let me know by email. [email protected] and attention it to Master Tommy

Testing Checklist in order

Testing Information by CatEgory

  1. PLEASE Register for the class before 12:00 Noon so there is a record in our Zoom Class that you will be attending. If you cannot do this on May 18 because the site wasn’t live, it’s okay. This week is practice so next week you can do it. Please register everyday before 12 noon to take class. If it doesn’t allow you to register it’s okay, just email us so we can check. We have this week to fix anything needing attention.
  2. Please log in 15 minutes prior to the class so if you have any challenges you can let us know early. We must start on time.
  3. Please make sure that your camera is set up at least to your shoulders. If a camera is on the floor, desk or regular size table we will not see the correct angle of your kicks and it will affect the score. Please also make sure you have proper lighting and proper space.
  4. Parents and Students are responsible to put in the students First and Last Name before class starts. Instructors will not have time to do this on pre-testing week.  We will take attendance and grade on the name on the screen name.
  5. Please be sure to have a water bottle and towel next to you so you don’t have to leave the floor.
  6. Use the rest room before class. It’s a pre-test and we can’t ask others to wait if you need to be excused. Thank You. Of course if nature calls, you need to go. Please be respectful and take of this before class starts.
  7. This is pre-testing week. All students are to be in full uniform during practice so they can practice in exactly what they are wearing for the test. Students should be dressed in full uniform and belt or Martial Arts pants and an ECMA black t-shirt w/ belt.

If a new uniform is needed, please email [email protected]

Pre-testing week and testing week are the weeks that parents are asked to make sure the kids are doing their homework assignments. These assignments are very important because character and discipline is a major part of martial arts and from this date forward every testing will encompass this as well.

Parents may pick from the list that or substitute something if they feel it would be more beneficial. The tasks are easy and will help keep order at home. PARENTS please be very strict on these activities. If the kids don’t perform what is expected, you should ask us either take them off the testing list or hold the belt after the testing until they complete the assignments. It’s your choice.

We are closed Monday May 25th for Memorial Day.

Refresher Class Open to ALL Advanced Dragons
Tuesday May 26th at 4:00
Regular class open to all students. This is a great time to use as a refresher since it’s a long weekend. All Advanced Dragons are welcome to attend and encouraged to so they can be ready for testing. 

Testing Week:  

Congratulations on making it to the test. You are making history participating in the first ever virtual online martial arts testing at ECMA. AWESOME!

Seriously though, we applaud the effort by both the parents and students for attending and being part of the Online Virtual Training at ECMA.

We know it was work and you had a lot of other things going on. Trust me, I  know. It took 7 ECMA staff to run 1 class so we could account for any technical issues or student challenges getting on.

Please scroll up to the Pre-Test Week and review those directions. It’s important that the testing run smooth. We will have a 4-5 on 1 ratio between students testing and instructors grading. 

We need you to register before 12 noon the morning of the test just like last week. The reason is we need to assign instructors to students and create break-out rooms in advance for a smooth process.

This will be determined by the news we get from the county. We want this to be special day for students so our goal is to have a ceremony either in the school or outside. We should know which this week. 

We have 3 plans of action depending on new from the county. We should have an answer by the end of the week.

  1. Inside ceremony limited to a few students at a time.
  2. Outside ceremony limited to a few students at a time.
  3. Curbside pick up with the testing table and belts so parents can pick up without being close to anyone. (Right now this is how we are planning until the county give us permission and guidelines to do something else.

If families feel more comfortable, we will schedule a time for you to pick up your belt at the studio. If you cannot we will make other arrangements.

We have been booking private lessons and they have been going very well. We actually record the session so the students has the split view of Instructor / Student. This is actually working out really well. because of several reasons.

1) Students can see themselves in the camera if they position themselves correctly. This allows them to see errors they normally wouldn’t see in a normal class.

2) There is a recording that students are shared on if requested. They  can review the lesson and take notes over and over again.

Click Here if you would like a private lesson.

You will not need to worry about this, the instructors will be meeting on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to see how everyone is doing on the pretest. We will let you know. It would be good for parents to let us know if they believe their student needs attention or extra work even before the pre-test week is done. We have slots open for privates but they will fill up fast.

Camo belt have their own option please go back to the selection page and choose camo belt Option

we are proud of you! Good Luck!
