Special Instructions to all to 2019 Candidates! 

  1. Please be sure all candidates are properly dressed at ALL stages of the testing. A clean, white uniform with an Association patch is a must. 
    • All female Candidates must wear appropriate garment(s) under the Gi top (all ages). 
    • Adult Sanchin testing will be performed with the Gi top off (no t-shirts for men). 
  2. Please use the student entrance in the rear parking lot of the ATKINSON DOJO. There will be instructors waiting there to greet candidates and show them to their proper area for testing. 
    • Front entrance is for judges only. 
    • For parents, please NOT enter the dojo when dropping the candidates off. Experience has taught us that this slows the entry process. 
    • To avoid unnecessary clutter and confusion in the dojo, parents of candidates are asked to wait outside for both the drop-off and pickup of the candidates.  
  3. Please report any injuries to the testing panel BEFORE the testing begins.
