  3. Candidates that fail the test or are not validated for any other reason must do shadowing for a period determined by the Examiner, which must be completed within a maximum of 6 months from his or her training date. If shadowing is not completed within 6 months, the candidate needs to be re-examined by an Examiner
  4. Shadowing means that the Candidate Instructor teaches under the supervision of an IKO Instructor Level 2 (or higher) for the amount of time determined at the end of the ITC

#MondayMotivation On Thursday September 7, 2017 Hurricane Irma brushed by Cabarete, Dominican Republic as a category 5 storm meaning winds exceeding 156 mph ~ 251 km/h. Luckily, we have the Mona Passage, tons of reefs, and high mountain ranges that protect us from storms like these. Two days after the storm and everything seemed to be back to normal, so we decided to take a walk from Cabarete Bay to Kite Beach and Encuentro to make sure everyone was ok. The response we got from every single person we asked, "Todo bien, gracias a Dios." Although we came out on the good end, many of our Caribbean neighbors lost everything and we are yet to see what happens in the rest of the US. Sending positive vibes to all those affected in this difficult time.
