Home practice and Grading

Although grading is not the primary purpose of Kung Fu Training we do have a path for all our members in the Cranes program to follow!  The merets and sashes are to reward effort and skill development and we continuously assess for meret badges at class.  When a Kung Fu 4 Kid ‘earns’  the 3 qualifying merets for their next sash they will be invited to test when the next test period arrives.  The date will be written onto the practice sheet they bring to every class!

Typically we run tests mid March,  Easter Camp, Early June,  Summer camps, Mid October, Halloween Camp and early December.

Every child works at their own pace but the earlier they build good habits in regards to practice the earlier they will learn the value of hard work and the more prepared they will be.  The practice sheets given at class should be taken care of and brought to class weekly for coaches signature and to discuss their progress and ask questions!  If you misplace them they can be printed in the Sash Program below.

If grading become the main focus of any Kids membership it may lead to stress as they progress. Our program is based upon developing real long term skills and we do not award sashes easily.   Please mange their expectations and speak to our coaches if you have any concerns in this regard.  The priority is for every member to have fun and moving through the grades too quickly will lead to them hitting a road- block at some point, they all need time up-skill or to allow them to physically grow.

Kung Fu  = Hard Work over a long period of Time, like learning Piano patience and love of the art is essential.

Lian Bu Chuan

Here is a breakdown from Master Yang’s son and President of YMAA Nicholas Yang.  Lian Bu Chuan is the first full sequence practiced in our program and is the foundation upon which all our Longfist Kung Fu is built.  This video demonstrates move by move the requirements for every posture and these are the standards required to reach the level suitable for testing for our Green, Purple and Red sashes and also to qualify you to test for the YMAA International Shaolin 1st Level.

Watch and practice hard and often.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIs_YR9No1E&t=2s
