This cycle, we have a very small group of students (6) who have qualified for their next belt rank, so we have made the decision to cancel belt graduation and hand the belts out in class.

After talking to several of the parents involved, they suggested we hand the belts out in class instead of asking everyone to come on a separate night.

I ordered the belts last night and expect to have them sometime next week.

We will award the belts during class.

Thanks for your suggestion!

P.S.  I really would encourage all of my students to begin working on their next belt rank and start tipping right away.
