Reward and Grading Structure
Integral to our children’s classes are the reward scheme and grading structure. The reward scheme allows us encourage and reward hard work and positive behaviour (both in and outside of the school) on a class by class basis, reinforcing why this behaviour is important in their day to day activities and for their growth as a martial artist.
The grading structure allows for setting of short, mid and long term goals. For both the children and adults, research shows that you are far more likely to stick to your training and get to where you aspire to be with goals in place, so we encourage people through the grading structure. It also allows us to deliver the system in a pragmatic and deliberate manner, making sure that the students are not overloaded, and that they understand each element before moving onto the next.
