Is there a well structured written curriculum for each grade from which students are taught?

 

All reputable martial art schools will have a set standard for each belt grade and an expectation that each student will be proficient before promotion to the next level.

 

The question to ask the instructor, when you are trying to decide which martial art school to attend or in which to enrol your child, is does the school have a structured written curriculum and can you view it.

 

Some schools may not have a written curriculum. Instead, these schools rely on the instructor's memory as to what each student needs to know.  This situation may lead to discrepencies in the standard of students across the belt levels.
