Syllabus

The UK Wing Chun Assoc. has a clearly defined grading syllabus that has produced some great students. ¬†Remember that the techniques required are universal, it is your effort and the quality of ‘coaching’ that makes the real difference.

We use these simple guidelines to differentiate standards of classes.  Once you pass a grade level you will be able to move on to the next level, but still have the opportunity to continue to work your basics.
