Can we receive higher ranks in this program?

What is the best way to make sure my children's uniform fits comfortably?
The pants are long on the uniform, giving the student room to grow. Thee is a tendency for the pants to hang below the ankle – not good!. Here is AN EASY FIX: tie the drawstring on the pant and then roll the elastic waistband down two or three times. This is a much better alternative to rolling the pants up from the bottom near the ankles.
What happens after the first session?
Kidsafe is NOT simply an introductory program. Students learn basic stances, blocks, punches and kicks and are tested at the end of each session. You are invited to continue working towards your yellow belt and higher. Each session builds previously on learned techniques and students are taught new techniques as they continue through the program.
