35th Shim Sa & Weapons Training Clinic

I am happy to announce South Hills Karate Academy’s 35th Promotion Shim Sa (Testing). The testing list can be found here: 35th Shim Sa
The 35th Promotion Testing will take place on Saturday March 23rd. This test will be held at the main location.

  • Adult Testing & Children Testing: 12:30PM Start Time

We will be testing both Children and Adult Students at the same time. I anticipate the Shim Sa will conclude no later than 2:30PM.

The 35th Shim Sa testing list below will be posted at the school. The list is based on current attendance and student progression. If your name does not appear on the list and you feel you are eligible for testing please see Master Garbowsky. Students who have had sparse attendance should work with Master Garbowsky to assure that they can become eligible to test! Students whose name appears on the testing list will be expected to attend at minimum two classes per week in order to properly prepare for the test.

Please pick up a copy of the test form during class. The test form must be filled out completely and must be turned in by Thursday, March 21st. The testing fee is $50.00. If you need help filling out the form, please see Master Garbowsky. In addition, all students are expected to have on their Dobalks a South Hills Karate Academy School Patch. Additionally, please make every attempt to join the Independent Tang Soo Do Association. Please see Master Garbowsky or Mr. Jeff Weir directly regarding the importance of being a member of the Association.

In order to help all students prepare we will be practicing testing material at all classes leading up to the test. Be sure to attend as many classes as possible!
