At Lions Krav Maga, we follow a positive behavior modification plan that always begins with redirection if a child is not following the rules or meeting expectations. If redirection doesn’t change the behavior, we will take the following steps:
- First Offense – Warning on the mat.
- Second Offense – Remove them from the group, where they are to stand still until the instructor determines that they are ready to return to the group.
- Third Offense – 10 to 20 power exercises, then return to the group
- Further Offenses – Add 10-20 power exercises each time, then return to training.
Students start in Krav Junior as a White Belt. We provide level tests every trimester wherein students who are eligible to test will demonstrate improvement in their skills to earn the next rank in their division.
In order to earn the next rank, students need to not only demonstrate improvement in skills to the Krav Junior instructor, but they must also demonstrate effort, respect, and kindness.
Students are only eligible to test once per year, except in special circumstances, and they must earn 8 skill stripes before they become eligible to test for their next rank.
