Students must demonstrate proficiency of the Level 1 material before advancing to Level 2. In order to do so, they must take a standard Level 1 Advancement Test. The test is pass/fail, and is scaled so that the most difficult movements on the test are first. Failure to complete any element of the test ends the test.

Scheduling:

Students can schedule a test with the Head Coach of their choosing (Kim, Chad, or Collin) whenever they feel ready to advance. The cost to schedule a test is $10. This test fee is due at the time of scheduling and is non-refundable.

Schedule your test online HERE.

If those test times do not fit your schedule, talk with your coach or contact us to find a more suitable time. Directly following your Level 1 class is a great time to test!
