April 2021 Kung Fu Grading Examinations
The year 2021 has already flown by so quickly! The first Kung Fu grading of the year is coming up fast and we want you to be ready to ace your examinations! Our grading examinations test students on their curriculum material to see if they are ready to progress to the next rank level in their martial arts journey.
Our Kung Fu gradings are the culmination of months of hard work by our students. They are designed to test students aptitude, memory, understanding and physical abilities. The grading examinations are a chance for students to showcase their growth in their pursuit of excellence.
Grading’s include punching and kicking techniques, paired sequences that test one’s ability to react to an enemy attack, board breaking, sparring and the traditional sequence of moves known as Taolu. Students are assessed on each criteria for their grading examinations.
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.
