Transitioning from Kidsfit to Teen Classes

For students that are preparing to transition from the Kidsfit Program (red uniform) to the Teenager classes (black uniform), they must first pass SLT1 Adult/Teen syllabus. The above requirements and rules apply.

A dedicated grading date and time will be scheduled. Once grading is successful, the Teenager will now continue training under the new Adult/Teen Level, not the same level they completed under the Kidsfit Program.

Our grading system includes 3 empty hand forms with each form consisting of 6 levels. In order to move on to the next form, students must complete all 6 grading levels.

We do not have colour belt/sash in our system. However, our official uniform identifies the training level based on the number of yellow stripes.

All students must meet the minimum requirement for grading before they can apply for grading. Please see below for further information
