FAQs

How long do you need to train before you become competent?
We believe that a student who trains diligently twice a week for six months will begin to feel physical and spiritual benefit. Those who train for a year should be better equipped to defend himself or herself in most circumstances. Still learning just the “moves” is not the main objective, because apart from that, Martial Arts help you to develop your character and ability to focus, improving confidence and humility.

Development and progression within our kung fu system
Grading examinations are held every 3 months. At certain times of each term, we will pay special attention towards preparing students for the grading examinations. Those who progress to black belt rank may then be eligible for Assistant Instructors’ and Instructors’ qualification courses. Upon qualification, you will be entitled to teach Nam-Pai-Chuan under the licensing agreements that exist for the control of proper standards and the promotion of the Art.
