The Advanced Syllabus returns to Siu Nim Tao and now works its way through the different Wing Chun forms move by move, so that you begin to understand what every part of the forms are for. The syllabus is split by form, with three grades per form, examined by Sifu Ross or Sifu Benno throughout the year. You will begin learning the third Wing Chun form, Biu Jee, straight away, however it is not graded until you reach the Biu Jee level.
Once you have completed the SNT, CK, and BJ grades (see below) you can choose to take the Technician Grade test which has a mix of technical, fitness, and sparring elements.
See the courses below for forms and applications.
Siu Nim Tao: Black with White
Cham Kiu: Black with Blue
Biu Jee: Black with Brown
Muk Yang Chong: Black with Red
Each form follows the same structure for its three grades. A few weeks before each grading Sifu Benno will decide which 6 techniques will be examined. You will be able to choose your own applications for these, based on what you have been training.
Grading will be: Saturday 7th October with Sifu Benno
