( no stains, not filled with wrinkles) Karate is a contact sport: no student wants to work with a partner in a dirty or dingy uniform.

Stripe evaluations are the end of each month. Students should not expect to graduate just because they have been here the minimum number of classes. They must have the skills required to move to the next level. Intent to Promote forms filled out by parents are required for promotion. We would like one from a school teacher when a student moves to a new class level. Students who miss graduation night may graduate Saturday Morning or Monday following graduation. Otherwise, graduation will be pushed until the next formal ceremony.
