Placement is based on a number of variables. Some of these are based upon previous study, age, maturity, strength, and technique. All placements are at the discretion of the instructors. It is important that students know that “moving up” is not about “being better.” It is very normal to be in the same class/level in your returning year. New and returning students will be evaluated, and if necessary, be moved to a more appropriate class. Proper placement is to insure the most positive, safe, and beneficial learning environment for the individual.
