Parents of the child
It’s important that you as a parent communicate to your child’s instructor any problems that may arise, either physical (any injury your child may have) or psychological (bullying at school). If there is any concern regarding your child’s progress towards the next level (grading) please ask your instructor about the strategies he has in place for them. Confidentiality regarding any information exchanged of a personal nature is between the instructor and you, nobody else.
A child has to be able to perform the technical aspect of the art both physical and with the spirit of karate to grade.
