We recommend that you take this course with a friend if possible (but not necessary). It helps to have a workout buddy to practice techniques on, spar with, and share ideas. It’s also more economical because you can share the cost of the video courses.
DFA Kali students will only be tested at Basic Instructor level and above, but they should stay in touch by sending periodic videos, (To make sure that they are making sufficient progress). You decide when you are ready for Instructor level testing.
However, you need to spend at least three months in between levels before moving on to the next level. These techniques, theories and ideas need to become ingrained in you and become part of your ‘muscle memory’. It is not enough to simply memorize the drills and techniques.
