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:

The topic for our Wing Chun online MasterClass is currently a deep dive into the use and application of the #WingChun Wooden Dummy. We are teaching a student, who is new to the Dummy, how to approach, use, and apply the dummy skills in application. Some skills are clearly Chi Sau based, others are useful in sparring or self defence. With 4 camera angles and assistants we are able to give a great insight into the Art and why a piece of wood may have some training utility.#WingChun #vingtsun, #martialarts #kungfu #ukwckfa #jamessinclair #mindfulness #China #chinese #stneots #norwich #rayleigh #bedford #grays #leicester #health #peaceofmind #keepcalm #selfdefence #spirit #freedom #expressyourself #lifetimeofactivity #woodendummy ...

A question from one of our online subscribers about using the rear elbow....As always there was a far longer discussion pre and post this short extracted section from our live online #WingChun tutorials. For this reason it is easy to take this small part out of context.We will not enter into discussions as we already covered many variations and risks in the full live episode.#WingChun #vingtsun, #martialarts #kungfu #ukwckfa #jamessinclair #mindfulness #China #chinese #stneots #norwich #rayleigh #bedford #grays #leicester #health #peaceofmind #keepcalm #selfdefence #spirit #freedom #expressyourself #lifetimeofactivity ...
