Our Teaching Philosophy
At RLMAC, we operate our dojo as a school of higher education. We offer professional instruction in a positive and encouraging environment! Each student is evaluated and tested with consideration for their age, experience and abilities. Our overall goal is to help each student become the best black belt they can be!
The dojo has a published yearly academic calendar with class schedules and testings set well in advance. We also offer flexibility in class time to allow students to be in attendance as much as possible. If a student isn’t in class, they miss out! Student attendance is tracked to help our staff ensure the students are present for their precious training time!
