They are progressive for the most part.  We repeat the basics a lot, and different skill sets each week (like wall work, bar work, or specific vaults) but I do move from easier to more difficult as the class progresses.  With that being said, it's also designed so that anyone can join at any time as well.  Class can be adjusted to new people and many times what we are working on is completely new to everyone anyway so everyone is in the same boat.

The biggest problem with you doing a Tuesday and Wednesday thing like that is that I run the same lesson plan every class through a week so you'll just be getting two of the exact same class and not really learning that much.  If you're only around for a little while, it's probably more beneficial to set up some private lessons.  They are a bit more expensive but you'll learn a lot more and it will be tailored specifically to what you should/want to learn.

It appears that Gleason's Maple Grove is having a Wednesday class as well. I think I read somewhere else that this will be taught by Skinny.? Presumably the lessons wouldn't be exactly the same, so to maximize the value of my 3.5 hour drive, I could attend class with Chad on Tuesday in Eagan, then with Skinny on Wednesday in Maple Grove.

Well, if you were to do that, you would pretty much be getting the same lesson.  If that is cool with you, then by all means, it will be good practice.  So it's up to you

I think it would be worthwhile to do both.  If you are going to drive that far, you may as well invest in two days of it.  Besides, they teach very differently, with the notable exception that they are now quite stuck with their "Slovakian" fake accents.  An alternative would be to go to the Tuesday class and the Wednesday adult open gym.

It looks like 6pm.  I'm going to *try* to make this, but I kinda committed to this Aikido thing...  Going to bring my two oldest minions.
