Disqualifications for the Knight Program

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

  • Candidate does not act according to the interest of the group rather than themselves.
  • Candidate refuses to follow the Restraints, specifically Rule #1: No Harm – this includes both physical and verbally.
  • 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
  • Candidate misses 4 or more classes in succession during their candidacy. In missing 4 classes, the class count resets to 0.

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 the conditions listed. Ranks suspension will occur under the following conditions:

  • A matter involving a disqualifier above occurs. Penalty will be determined by leadership of the group.
  • Knights who have missed 6 or more classes across a period of over 6 consecutive months 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 rights are restored.
  • Skill assessments are scheduled by leadership of the group and there is no guaranteed time but could take 1-6 months.
  • 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). LUMINA meets do not count as classes. Keep in mind that LUMINA meets are for sparring and sport. They are not meant for teaching. Sitting a class out does not count as class attendance.
