As you earn your way through the belts you are expected to retain what you have learned in previous belts. The Rising Star has a great program that allows darker belts to teach, lead, and support lighter belts success. Teaching and leading is a part of the learning process within the Rising Star curriculum.
Classes are divided between the lighter and darker belts to ensure that the level of training being provided is reflective of the skill of the students. Darker belts train more intensely to prepare them for the level of difficulty of their testing. All belts will train at all levels but must reach specific milestones before they can test for the next belt rank.
