Quarterly Belt Testing at PMA Manassas
 
At PMA Manassas, our students are always striving for excellence, and each quarter, we give them the chance to showcase their hard work and progress through our Quarterly Belt Testing. This is not just an evaluation; it's a celebration of dedication and achievement. Every month, our stripe test evaluations ensure students are on track, so by the time the quarterly test arrives, they're ready to shine.
During this exciting event, students will be challenged and inspired, setting new goals for the upcoming months. It's a fantastic opportunity for family and friends to witness the progress and dedication of their loved ones. Bring your camera to capture these milestone moments, and don't forget to come prepared with water and all your training gear. Make sure to wear your full uniform—children should have both pants and jacket top, while teens and adults should be in PMA pants and a white or black PMA/Krav Maga shirt.
 
Early bird registration saves you $5, but it's available online only, so don't miss out. Our test fees help cover the day's expenses and contribute to further enhancing our facilities.
