    What are these Grading Tests?
    Grading tests are opportunities to enter into Level 2+ classes. When a student feels they are ready, they can request to review the syllabus/grading test from the front desk to see if they can demonstrate all the skills required. Testing occurs about once every three months, and a student can attempt the test whenever they feel ready (or better, at a coach’s recommendation!)
