Belt Rank Class
REV's commitment to growth at every level is demonstrated through where we place our time and effort. Communicating our expections from each belt rank is the first step towards helping students set personal growth goals. The second step is to schedule specific training time - Belt Rank Classes - to help our students learn the requisite techniques and knowledge. The final step is in the hands of our students and it requires them to take ownership of the development. We expect to see them drill these essential techniques before or after classes until they have them committed memory and can use them with fluidity in sparring.
The Belt Rank Class occurs on the first Monday night of each month with time and location being communicated through social media and text messaging. Make sure you "Like" REV's Facebook page so that you receive the announcements and confirm that you are included in the group text messaging list. Each class focuses on one belt rank so that each year students have the opportunity to participate in at least two classes directed at their specific belt rank. Students are encouraged to ask questions and note the techniques covered in class for further drilling. Students of all belt ranks are encouraged to attend so that they can play an active roll in helping their teammates develop. This serves as a refresher course for those that are already at a higher rank than the class' focus belt rank or a preview for those that are below the focus belt rank. We rely on the participation of higher belts to help the lower belts learn and improve their game. The Belt Rank Class builds UNITY among our team as students from all Cia Paulista academies are invited to attend.
