The workshops are open to all coloured belt members and a pre-requisite (Pre-Req) for Black Belt candidates, helping you improve your effectiveness  absorbing knowledge and skills.   E.g.  purposeful training or overcoming mental blocks.   San Shou Kuan does not see a Black Belt grading as the ‘finish post’, it is an entry point to enhancing your skills, self confidence, earning money and potentially a very rewarding opportunity to  ‘give something back’ – share your knowledge. 
“If you can’t explain it simply,  you don’t understand it well enough”  Albert Einstein.

Destruction Workshops

“Destruction is about breaking weaknesses not boards”
This is not a ‘Pre-Req’ requirement for your Black Belt grading –  your hands, your choice!
All destruction requirements  are predefined requirements,  for the rounded well prepared martial artist, an opportunity to pick up easy points; for others, the most raw pressure test – do you ‘back yourself’ (and your training) to chop a brick in half?!
SSKdestruction-workshop sskDestruction-workshop2  workshop graduate broke 3/3 first time
L/R: workshop refining techniques on pads; sidekick blocks, punching tiles (Jane workshop graduate: Successfully punched, chopped and kicked everything first time at her 1st and 2nd degree Black Belt gradings. )

Prior to our Destruction workshops the candidate’s who broke everything were infrequent,  since we have being running these workshops candidates not breaking everything are now uncommon!
The tests are exactly the same, success rates have massively improved, injuries are rare.
The workshop teaches you practical and mental techniques on conditioning, various approaches to destruction enabling you to identify and start refining a technique you can feel confident about.
