Up to 3 missed classes can be made up until the end of the semester. Students can make up a class by attending another class of the same style and skill level.
Regular attendance is extremely important for making progress in the martial arts. Please try not to miss class!
If you are injured, please come to class and observe. There’s still lots of value in the knowledge being presented in class, regardless of whether you can practice the movements or not. This is especially true because many concepts and techniques build on one another.
Excesses absences may result in the student being ineligible for advancement, as knowledge of concepts and techniques are both required to progress to their next rank.
If you or your child is going to be absent for their regularly scheduled class, please e-mail:
We understand that life happens.
Please make every effort to get to class on time. Especially with children, arriving to class on time allows students sufficient time to switch gears, shift into their training routine, and prepare their uniforms and belts for class.
If you are arriving once class has already started, please put your shoes away and quietly bow into the classroom. Walk around the back of the classroom, and quietly take the next available spot in class. If you need a belt tied once you have taken your class spot, raise your hand and a Sensei come will over and assist.
