First Kung Fu grading of 2020

April 2020 Kung Fu Grading

The first Kung Fu grading of 2020 is fast approaching. You should all be practicing hard every day to ensure you succeed in your respective examinations.

Our Kung Fu grading’s assess students on their curriculum material. Students are put through an examination which determines whether they are ready to be promoted to the next rank level. The grading requires thorough understanding of a variety of techniques and their application.

Grading’s include punching and kicking techniques, paired sequences that test one’s ability to react to an enemy attack, board breaking, sparring sessions and the traditional sequence of moves known as Taolu (套路). Students are assessed on each criteria for their grading examinations.  

For new students

You must be registered and have a full Gi before participating in the grading. Your instructor will issue you a grading form if you pass the mock grading during classes.
