Final Kung Fu grading of 2023
Information for New Students
Some of the requirements to be eligible for grading is that students must be registered and have a full Gi before participating. After learning their curriculum material, students will participate in mock examinations. If students pass the mock exams, their Instructor will issue them with a grading form.
The grading examinations include striking techniques (Da 打), paired sequences (Chángguī 常规), board breaking techniques (Dapo 打破), combat sparring (Sanshou 散手), and the traditional routines known as Taolu (套路). Students are assessed in each category as part of their grading criteria. Our robust curriculum sets the requirements, standards and expectations for the grading examinations.
Details for the December 2023 Kung Fu grading are as follows:
When: Friday 08 December 2023, Kids from 5.30pm, Adults from 6.30 pm.
Where: 38 Kipling Street, Roslyn, Palmerston North – in the Roslyn School Hall.

What to do: Show up at your allotted time and take the correct exam applicable to your rank. Make sure you have your sparring gear (where applicable).
How: Practice your grading material, show us your stuff, get a grading form, return it to us complete.
Excluding black belt grades, there are 20 rank levels in the Kung Fu Academy NZ. This requires a minimum of five years training to achieve the rank of black belt. Our curriculum challenges students in physical, mental and spiritual aspects. It requires great dedication, discipline and concentration to succeed.
Good Luck and we’ll see you on the 8th December!
