The Schola Saint George now certifies our instructors as junior "instruttore minore" - and senior, "instruttore maggiore."
Progress as an instructor first usually requires accomplishment in the core curriculum to the Scolaro Maggiore level, training several students to the Scolaro level, and having the sponsorship of a Instruttore Maggiore or a Magistro. Then, an exhaustive oral exam (2-3 hours, on average) must be passed. New instructors are certified.
Our instructors are responsible for developing and maintaining the curriculum, as well as continuing their own development within the martial art. Except in unusual circumstances, instruttore may only test students to up to two belt levels below their own. Online video testing is available.
