academy Etiquette / Rules

GMA Policies

Class Attendance
At GMA, Our Staff Is Dedicated To Providing The Best, Most Diverse, Comprehensive Martial Arts And Life Education Possible. In Order To Achieve A Complete And Progressive Learning Environment, We Do Not Take Students For Less Than 2 Classes Per Week. This Is Because In Order To Retain Information And Remain Motivated, A Student Requires Consistent Practice. To Ensure Complete Understanding, We Have Minimum Class Credit Points Required To Be Able To Test For Each Rank Level.

By Only Attending Classes Once Per Week, Students Are Not Eligible To Test With Their Classmates. This Can Create A Loss Of Motivation And Significantly Delay Advancement Reducing The Likelihood Of Attaining A Black Belt Which Is The Foundation Of Future Martial Arts And Life Learning At Our Academy. We Have Many Years Of Experience In Our Field And An In-House Child Development Expert. Our Principles And Rules Are Based On Our Vast Experiences Over The Past 50+ Years. Our Staff Does Not Believe In Charging For Services Which Will Not Benefit Our Members At This Academy. By Implementing The More Than Two Classes Per Week Requirement, We Are Able To Provide The Best Martial Art And Life Education Possible To All Members.

* You must take the $24.99 - 3 Trial Special, the instructor will see if you are able to join our program. If you join by the second class we will credit the $24.99 back towards your new program.
