Orientation is a chance for us to teach your child the basics of how class flows, set our expectations, and teach a few fun moves.

What to Wear:

Have your child wear comfortable clothes they can move and stretch in. We will be fitting and giving out uniforms to registered students during orientation.

If you have any other questions before orientation, please feel free to reach out!

For color belts, stripe tests are $20, color belt tests are $30. We make an event out of the test. We also submit the results to the ATA, so if you move to a different school, your rank will transfer.

Stripe tests are midterms. We’re looking for skill development, general ability to do the movements, and implementation of life skills such as discipline. It’s a chance for your child to show off what they’re doing, for us to see where they’re making good progress, and for us to determine where we need to focus.

Color belt tests we’re looking for demonstration of specific skills (not necessarily perfectly at the beginner level), a strong start on performing forms and combinations, and implementation of certain key aspects such as discipline, listening, knowledge of techniques, etc.

One uniform and a white belt is included in the first month’s tuition. Testing, additional uniforms, and any other equipment is purchased separately as needed.

When you register, we take a credit card in our system and that card is automatically billed each month on your start date for that month’s tuition. We also use that same card to bill for testing on the day of the test.

You have to email Ms. Caroline at caroline@transylvaniatkd.com to cancel. We do not offer refunds on prior months, but pausing and restarting your membership is easy and we’re happy to help you do that.
