This group of Russellville Martial Artists have been working diligently on our current material and are excited and prepared to perform their techniques and information at our next series of testing events this October.

There will be a mock testing and curriculum review on Wednesday, October 5 during normal class times for all programs. This gives instructors an opportunity to evaluate individual progress and retention and provide detailed feedback about student readiness. Students having issues with a particular technique or combination are encouraged to schedule a private lesson with one of their instructors. More event on this can be found here.

Our next Testing event will be an Adult Judo Testing held at our academy on Saturday, October 8. Formal testing begins at 1:00pm and will be administrated by a special guest panel of Judo Black Belts from across the state. The testing panel will provide individual student assessments and feedback to aid in continued improvement.

Later in October, we will be conducting our youth and adult Mixed Martial Arts testing from October 21-23. Our 5-7 year old kids MMA program will be testing Friday, October 21 at 5:30pm followed Youth and Teens the following morning at 11:00am.
