Mini Ninjas Belt Promotion
How Your Child Will Advance Through the Program
After every first skill lesson the instructor will place a sticker within the Mini Ninjas Achievement Record Card and on the completion of the second skill lesson your child will be awarded a skill stripe for developing that skill. Each skill stripe is a different color. Your child must earn all eight colored skill stripes in order to qualify to advance to the next level. Each ninja with all eight skills stripes will perform at the Mini Ninjas Belt Promotion to be held every nine weeks.
The Mini Ninjas Belt Promotion gives your child the opportunity to show the instructors and parents how developed each skill has become.
After the performance, an awards ceremony is held to reward the Mini Ninjas with their new rank. Their rank advancement gives your child a new challnege for each skill. Your child again begins to collect the colored skills stripes as they set their goal for the next belt performance. This keeps the program exciting and challenging. Your child will learn how to set goals and achieve them accomplishing their new ranks.
The following is a list of each skill with the color of the skill stripe.
Mini Ninjas instructors monitor your child's progress by his or her skills stripes. Make sure your child is consistent with his or her attendance so that he or she earns each skill stripe before the Mini Ninjas Grading. In order to avoid excess time at each rank and prevent boredom, follow the curriculum calendar.
If your child has difficulty with a specific skill, the instructor may ask you to work with him or her at home to improve the skills. Homework assignments are provided so your child can be the best that he or she can be. Our goal is to thoroughly develop the eight skills in the Mini Ninjas Program.
