Once a student is a Black Belt and at least 18 year old, they can be considered for Head Instructor. This role encompasses all of the other leadership roles and requirements. Students who are considering becoming a Head Instructor must have already been in the role of Assistant Instructor and must attend a Head Instructor Certification class. Once certified, they can begin teaching classes of your own without supervision. If given a class to teach, Head Instructors are given the responsibility to make sure students are ready for testing and communicate that with Mrs. Jackson. Head Instructors wear all black uniforms.
