For your video grading submission, you will be required to demonstrate the Form, Single hand techniques 4 times forward 4 times backwards & show your Understanding of the Application/Jong- right hand and left hand x 2 finally demonstrate the Hand pad work. This will allow Sifu to see your energy generation.
After you have practiced the techniques and you are happy you have reached an acceptable level of competency and understanding you can upload a video of yourself to the Black Mantis Kung Fu website where you will be assessed by Sifu Hansen. If there are any adjustments required to your techniques you will be contacted by email or Skype and Sifu will explain what you need to do if required. When you have practiced those adjustments you may then re-video yourself and resubmit your video of the adjusted grading requirements (there is no cost to resubmit your videos). Upon an accepted level of competency shown in your grading video Sifu Matthew Hansen will pronounce you as being successful in your grading and you will move to the next level. You will receive a personalized grading certificate with a badge indicating your current level.
After each successful grading submission you will receive an official certificate & badge exclusive to Black Mantis Kung Fu Academy, according to your relevant level. Then you should begin training to achieve the next level for future grading.
Also you are to acquire a Black Mantis training t-shirt to perform your first grading in (this is a minimum requirement), as I now considered you an official student of the Mantis Kung Fu Academy. Full training kits are also available in the shop. Be proud of that feeling of being a part of something big.
