Kung Fu/Wushu

Our new grading system has been implemented to provide a clear structure within the club, and to demonstrate the pathway students must follow to make progress  within the sport.

The China Spirit UK grading system is in line with grading system of the European Wushu Federation and equivalent with the traditional Chinese Grading system for Wushu.


There will be opportunities for students to undertake formal grading examinations at various times throughout the year, and to receive certificates of achievement. Undertaking formal grading will allow students to progress both within the club and within the sport of Shaolin Kung Fu (Wushu).

Bronze Eagle students should attend one Bronze Eagle class a week (or more, if they wish), working towards achieving their 5th, 4th and 3rd Ji Grades.
