The Beginner Syllabus (Grades 1-4) focusses on the foundation of the Wing Chun syllabus. Click here to go to the Syllabus Overview.
For each of Grades 1-3 there is Theory, Form, Chi Sau (tactile exercises), Lat Sau (visual exercises), and Self Defence. Grade 4 is a Revision Grade where you need to show all the material from the previous three grades to a higher standard.
The Self Defence is trained in a rotation system, where all grades train the same rotation (Grabs/Ambushes/Confrontations) and then grade on specific exercises within it. The Self Defence part for Grade 4 is graded as a Pressure Test, rather than each individual exercise on its own like the other parts of the syllabus.
