LITTLE DRAGONS LEVELS COMBINED

Following our review and your feedback we have decided to combine the existing Level 1 and Level 2 Little Dragon classes into one class. This brings several benefits;
  • earlier class time for the young ones.
  • the ability to train with siblings.
  • the ability to bring a buddy and train with friends.
  • access to different partners of different levels of experience
  • all little dragons will be learning the same set of techniques.
This will come into effect as of January 22nd, 2024.

NEW RANKS IN LEVEL 1 YOUTH

We are introducing two new ranks into the Youth Level 1 – Red tip & Youth level 2 – Red belt
This means that Youth Level 1 will consist of White/Yellow-tip/Yellow belt/Red-tip ranks.
Students will grade from Red tip to Red belt and move into Youth Level 2 – Red belt/Orange-tip/Orange belt/Purple-tip
This change brings Level 1 into line with all other levels and will reduce class change requirements on new students giving them more time to develop friendships and lock in their basic skills.

Hopefully that all makes sense. All changes come into effect as of January 22nd, 2024. Any questions please let us know.
