Siu Nim Tao Grading Wing Chun Kung FU

Siu Nim Tao Grading

The UKWCKFA has only two compulsory gradings. These were instigated to separate beginners, intermediates and advanced level classes. After that all gradings are voluntary and you will complete the rest of the formal ‘Art’ in time regardless of whether or not you wish to test yourself. The UKWCKFA has only two compulsory gradings to move through classes. The Siu Nim Tao grading allows students to move to the advanced classes.

Big ‘Congratulations’ to all of the students who took part in the 2nd Level grading known as the Siu Nim Tao grading. There was a great class camaraderie. The students who came to watch were inspired to push forward and enjoyed it immensely.

Rayleigh

Well done to Steve Hunt who proved that age is not the great barrier that many fear. At 60 yrs of age and with only a couple of years in training he succeeded in passing the test, and with a smile. He also was responsible for pulling his classmates together by using the National HQ, when it was free, to meet up for extra practice. http://www.rayleighwingchun.co.uk

Maidstone

Another ‘Well done’ to Darren Sumpton of the Maidstone Wing Chun School as he succeeded in gaining a ‘Distinction Pass’ of 82.5% well earned and a testament to his teacher Mark Blackbourne.

Sidcup

John Cossentine Sifu who runs the Sidcup Wing Chun school managed to successfully get his two candidates through this demanding grading. Well done to Owen Bradnock and Patrick Cotton. Go to http://www.kentwingchun.net for more info

Finally the students from the Bedford Wing Chun School travelled all the way to Essex and faced the challenge with a good pass being earn. Well done to Antonio and Enzo. http://www.bedfordwingchun.co.uk

Special thanks go out Advanced Level students Kyriakos Charalambous and Chris Kelly who went in and trained with the guys last night to push them and help them reach their potential.

The guys all deserve a mention:

Please take the time to like these clips. It takes a moment and is an acknowledgment of the effort we make to share them with you.-----------------------------------------The live online sessions have now moved on to the Advanced Hand Combinations from the 3rd level grading of the #ukwckfa syllabus. In this clip, James Sinclair was discussing the use of the many and varied hand skills in the beautiful Art #wingchun. As mentioned toooooo many times, this is but a tiny extract from a far longer discussion. In fact, this is from a 45-minute edited discussion.In this short extract, James Sinclair is showing some ideas to Onder Hassan. This is just part of a 10-minute free-flow practice after the live broadcast which was not rehearsed, choreographed, or prepared in any manner, just off the cuff. Here is an extract, warts and all.... Before everyone goes off a rant about fighting, this is simply practice and not unlike the skill of dummy training. James Sinclair was simply teaching some ideas to Onder Hassan.As this is a tiny extract and open to misinterpretation we will not answer questions or respond to comments. It could go back and forth ad infinitum... Many of the questions or comments you may have were probably dealt with in the extended video.#wingchun #vingtsun, #martialarts #kungfu #ukwckfa #jamessinclair #mindfulness #china #chinese #stneots #Norwich #rayleigh #bedford #grays #leicester #health #peaceofmind #keepcalm #selfdefence #spirit #freedom #expressyourself #lifetimeofactivity ...
