To keep your child learning and progressing, we require a periodical evaluation.  The test will consist of a verbal portion of simple questions as well as a physical demonstration of the movements and basics in their level.  This gives a Sifu one on one time with your child and allows them to ensure they are progressing.

Instructors will determine when your child is ready for testing.  Testing is $15 for all levels except the Mantis graduat, payable prior to the test date. Upon passing, your child will receive a certificate and you will have the opportunity to take a photo of them receiving it.
