Syllabus:

Not only does our club teach a variety of techniques and essential skills such as striking, kicking and blocking but also follows an official Syllabus. This Syllabus has been improved over the years to make it more polished, interesting and to teach you as much as possible. Click the Belts below to see each Syllabus and bare in mind that you will only be Graded once BOTH the Sensei's feel you're ready. Most, if not all Gradings are successful because of this. All Syllabus are available to download.
