HOW TO EARN YOUR NEXT BELT FOR YOUNG LIONS! 

In order for students to graduate onto their next belt rank, they must know their present belt curriculum. This means that the students should take the time to review the curriculum taught at the Academy by practicing at home. 

Furthermore, please note that the instructors will hold pre-tests/pre-evaluation a couple of weeks leading up to the scheduled Belt Test.
