Beginning kids age 8 and up attend class twice a week: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 pm. The Thursday class is a combined class with the younger kids, giving the older students a chance to serve as role models and practice working safely and cooperatively with younger children.
Saturday outdoor class (9:30-10:30 am) also welcomes students in this age group. Some make it their third class per week; others use it as a make-up class when they have to miss a regular weekday workout.
Children in this class have the opportunity to earn belt ranks (stripes on their belts and colored belts) within the Cuong Nhu children’s ranking system. To earn a stripe or colored belt, a student must have excellent attendance, show good behavior and effort, and be able to demonstrate certain techniques and forms practiced in class. From time to time, eligible students will be invited to take a test and be promoted.
