Wing Chun Syllabus

During the Lockdown of 2020 we started filming the Escrima syllabus, along with many solo training exercises and recordings of our Zoom classes for students to use when training outside of class. These are available through our online portal: FuTube, and you can find some taster videos here.

Instructor Levels

We hold regular gradings for those who wish to progress through our syllabus. For beginners we have grading every three months, when students can choose to take their next grade if they feel ready. For the basic grades, three months is normally plenty of time based on students training twice per week. For the intermediate and senior grades we grade every 4 months. Some higher grades often require more than one grading rotation to pass.

When you complete a Level and move up, eg Beginner to Intermediate, you are presented with a new t-shirt as a congratulations from us on working hard and succeeding.
