Out of curiosity, how do pre-tests work?

For Black Belt/Black Sash they must perform all knowledge Kenpo and Gung Fu requirements usually the first day is a written test, a test on the wu tech code of training, requirements white to black journal test/ bible test. 

2nd day is physical testing scenario testing full sparring, grappling, full contact stick fighting etc.

The pretest is to make sure that the student has had a chance to take it to its fullest and to ensure they are ready for the big show.

We actually do this for every rank from yellow on up. On promotion day the students are only required to perform only half of their knowledge for their rank being that they had passed everything on their pre-test.

So the pre-test is essentially the majority of the exam (ie they don't do the whole thing twice?).  That sounds pretty neat.  What is the journal/bible test?

Not to change the subject but Sifu Jason,

I spoke with Sibak Chayse last night (22 Aug) and he is very much looking forward to being there to support your students testing. 

Please call me when you get a chance. ;)

Sifu Jason,

The test is given on all their knowledge that they should have in their martial arts journal / bible. The journal itself is actually graded.
