KID ZONE - CHILDREN'S CLASS INFORMATION
Children’s Class White to Yellow Sash:
This class is designed for children 6 years and over.
These classes are ongoing and available three times a week, Monday and Wednesday from 6:15 pm to 7:15pm, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. The fee for these classes is monthly; children are welcome to attend all three classes but are not required too. Our primary focus at the white and yellow level is to introduce children to the foundational stances and movements of kung fu in a safe environment while encouraging them do their best and work hard. White belts will learn several stances, hand and foot techniques, and participate in physical activity like jumping jacks, running and pushups. At the completion of their white belt students will know the first form (a combination of punching and kicking done in a continual movement), and be able to execute most stances, have stepping ability along with a variety of punching and kicking techniques. Yellow belts will review and build on their knowledge learned as a white belt, learn their second hand form, work with staves and participate in partner work.
Children’s Class Orange and Up:
This class is open to students who have attended our white and yellow sash classes and have earned their orange sash.
These classes are ongoing and available three times a week, Monday and Wednesday from 7:15pm to 8:15pm, and Saturday from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. The fee for these classes is monthly; children are welcome to attend all three classes but are not required too. Orange belt and beyond students are exposed to a wide variety of kung fu techniques, hand and weapon forms, while still building on the basics they have learned in white belt and enjoying a wide variety of physical activity. This is a fast pace class where students often work in partnership practicing open hand techniques as well as participating in sparring. As a student progresses to higher belts, ie blue and above, they are encouraged to choose for themselves which style of hand forms and/or weapons they would like to learn more about or focus on. Together with their instructor the students are introduced to the many aspects and varying styles of kung fu.

Children’s sash levels include the following:
White, yellow, orange, green, blue, and red sash; after red the next level is black sash. If the student wishes to pursue their black sash they must, when they are ready, continue their training in the adult class where they will receive training and evaluation by our all senior teachers. Additionally we award two black stripes to students before they are able progress to the next sash level. This system allows the student to fully absorb all the information they are learning at every stage while providing us with a method of acknowledging and rewarding their hard work. Please refer to the curriculum for a complete breakdown of what students are expected to know at each sash level.
Sash testing takes place three times a year, in the winter, spring and fall. Dates and times are announced well in advance. There are no fees for belt testing.
