** Advancement

Our primary focus is always to have a student placed in a level that is appropriate to each individual's proficiency and physical strength.  Advancement may occur at any time, however on average students are expected to remain in a level for a minimum of one year.  Your child may or may not be promoted every year.  If a child is promoted too soon, he/she will miss very valuable training.  Also, the child will struggle in the next level, which is unnecessary and could result in injury. A student who carefully develops his/her technique early in the curriculum will find advancement in later years to be smoother and more rewarding.
