Disqualifications for the Knight Program

A person may be disqualified for the Knights program if any of these conditions arise:

  • Candidate does not act according to the interest of the group rather than themselves.
  • Candidate refuses to follow the Restraints and Observances
  • Candidate behaves inappropriately either in class or at public gatherings
  • The team does not feel the candidate is keeping their safety in mind
  • Injury to anyone in class (both in and outside of class)
  • Unable to provide confidence in the ability to pay monthly dues
  • Candidate misses classes continually – see Rank Suspension
  • Candidate takes upon themselves to represent SaberCraft or Magic City Knights to the public without permission from the governing body

Rank Suspension

A Knight may continue to take classes and retain their rank but cannot instruct/advise students if their rank is suspended.Rank may be restored as per condition listed. Ranks suspension will occur under the following conditions:

  • A matter involving a disqualifier above occurs. Penalty will be determined by a vote of the Council of Knights.
  • Knights who have missed 4 or more classes across a period of over 90 consecutive days have their rank standing suspended. They can renew their status by scheduling a 20 min skill assessment on their current rank proficiencies with the head instructor. Upon completing the skill assessment successfully, all rites are restored.
  • Knights who have missed 8 or more classes across a period of over 90 consecutive days have their rank standing suspended. They can renew their status by scheduling a 1 hour skill assessment on their current rank proficiencies with the head instructor. Upon completing the skill assessment successfully, all rites are restored.
  • Not paying dues past 60 days from renewal date.

Please understand, just as in any dance/martial arts studio, many lessons are covered on a weekly basis. We have new initiatives and choreographies every season (3 months). In a season, 4 classes account for 33% of classes. Missing 8 classes accounts for 66% of classes.
