WC: Intermediate Syllabus

The Intermediate Syllabus looks to develop your understanding of the Wing Chun system, building on the foundations of the Beginner syllabus. As before, it is split into four components organised into a rotation system of three terms, however these terms are now four months long (compared to three months). All Intermediate students train the same material together, but are expected to perform it at a grade-appropriate level by the end of the term.
– Student Grades: 5-8
– T-shirt Colour: Green

Term 1: Starts January, Grading: April
Term 2: Starts May, Grading: September
Term 3: Starts September, Grading: December

Grading will be: Monday 29th April – Saturday 4th May

1. Form
The Form component focuses on applications of the Siu Nim Tao form that you learnt in the Beginner syllabus, rather than learning a new form.  
– This term we are focusing on: SNT Part 1. Click here for details.

2. Chi Sau
The Chi Sau component is the progression from the Beginner ‘Contact’ component. You are now learning the traditional Chi Sau roll, utilising the shapes and ideas from the Siu Nim Tao to develop your tactile responses.
– The Chi Sau component of the Intermediate syllabus is grade specific, and so is outside of the termly rotation system. Check out the Intermediate Chi Sau course for more details.

3. Self Defence
The Self Defence component builds on elements from the Beginner ‘Contact’ and ‘Broken Range’ components, adding different ranges and scenarios to further develop your self defence skills. 
– This term we are focusing on: Anti-Ground. Click here for details.

4. Theory
The Theory component develops your understanding of the Siu Nim Tao form, along with new concepts, principles and strategies specific to each rotation.
– This term we are focusing on: Ground Strategy. Click here for details.

Grade 8 is a Revision Grade where you will demonstrate all the material from the previous seven grades to a higher standard. Grade 8 also includes a longer Pressure Test which takes different aspects from the syllabus and combines them with pad work in an exercise aimed at putting you and your Wing Chun under pressure.

You can find full details of the Intermediate syllabus on the Intermediate Syllabus Overview as well as a downloadable PDF version.
