WING CHUN CURRICULUM

YOUTH - JUNIORS

Junior’s Wing Chun Curriculum

AGE APPROPRIATE TEACHING

Juniors are taught slightly differently than our youth and our adults.  Each age group requires different emphasis. For example, while adults need to cultivate Relaxation to develop Fa Jing or Whipping Power, the youth need to greater emphasis on Structure and Power to cultivate Fa Jing, and  our Juniors fall somewhere in between.  While the curriculum is the same for all – our goals and emphasis will be different for each.

Further, teaching Wing Chun to children requires and ability to convey Wing Chun’s Principle’s and Concepts in a way that they will understand.   With the youth, we rely heavily on metaphor so they can grasp the concepts.  Juniors and Adults are required to take notes on more advanced lectures when appropriate.  All material is presented in an age specific way to cultivate great learning. 

PHASE 1 -
INTRO WHITE SASH LEVEL

Wing Chun Boot Camp™ Curricum

26 Classes. 1 to 2 1/2 Years 

The second phase, Siu Lim Tao level,  builds carefully on the white sash foundation and is comprised of 26 specific classes that are meant to develop your child’s skill and knowledge quickly and effectively in San Sik (Footwork and Handwork), Anti-Grappling, Ground Work, the Inside Line, Kick Defense, Sensitivity,  & Power Training using Wing Chun’s principles and concepts at their highest efficiency.  This will take a student anywhere from  a year to two and a half years to complete.  All classes must be attended and students will be formally tested in proficiency.  A student must also pass a written/computer test to progress to the Chum Kiu level.

The third phase, Chum Kiu level,  builds on all previous material.  While Siu Lim Tao focuses on the practitioner in relation to his/her opponent (body structure, coordination, positioning etc.), Chum Kiu focuses on controlling or destroying the structure of the opponent.  The curriculum emphasizes safely bridging (point of no contact to contact), Controlling and Trapping, and Attacking through Chin Na, Kicks, and more advanced Striking.  All classes must be attended and students will be formally tested in three levels for the total 60 classes.  A student must also pass a written test to progress to the Chum Kiu level.

The fourth phase is Biu Gee.  Biu Gee is much more circular in its approach in teaching.  There is heavy emphasis on free-thinking.  This phase of training is taught only to the most revered students, as these are the ones who are willing to do the work to earn it.  We encourage all of our students to stay focused and disciplined enough to make it this far.  We hope you become one of the ones who sees the system through to its completion.  Biu Gee will take a minimum of a year of training.
