Palo Alto Martial Arts’ policy is designed to best suit students’ needs. Our make-up policy provides students with opportunities to make up missed classes. This prevents students from falling behind and allows students to stay on schedule with belt promotion.
If a student misses classes for less than a month, the student is allowed to make up classes by attending other classes before the membership ends. A student must notify instructors before attending a make-up class. However, absences due to holidays, official activities, and promotion tests, official vacation cannot be made up. Official activities and promotion tests are considered part of the learning experience, and all students are encouraged to attend them.
