Gradings

For many students and members progreessing through the grades towards the coverted Black Belt is their main objective.   In San Shou Kuan we host at least four rounds of Regional gradings at locations close to where you train each year for our lower graded students.   Our main traditional classes prime focus is to develop students to achieve their best performances at these Regioanl Gradings.  From other parts of this site you will see that our grading structure encompasses: traditional forms; fixed sparring techniques (self-defence) and free sparring. 

San'Da Squad Training

As active members of the British Chinese Council of Martial Arts (BCCMA) we actively take part in the National San’Da Squad training sessions that occur monthly at Crawley Leisure Centre.   These training sessions are open to all San Shou Kuan members and BCCMA members and are led by the National San’da Coaches.   San’Da is the formal term to describe Chinese Kickboxing.   At these monthly events you can train with the National San’Da squad to learn and train with some of the best San’Da competitors.  This may sound intimidating but that is far from the truth; you will train with passionate, encouraging enthusiasts who want to help promote the sport of San’Da. 

Competitions

Throughout the course of the year there are numerous competitions available.  In San Shou Kuan we endeavour to host at least one Taolu (forms) competition each each togeather with our own San’Da event.   Our San’Da events are a good spring board for those students wishing to compete at National levels.  These are exclusive to our organisation and are a great way to expierence competitive sparring in a friendly and collegiate manner.   

There are several National Competitions that members can enter, these include:  National San’Da (Kicking Boxing); National Qingda (Light sparring); Natioanl Shuai Jiao (Chinese Wrestling); National Veterans Qingda and Junior Qingda.   Further there are Professional Fight Nights, and International Competitions.   

Every two years the Eurpean Wushu Federation hosts the European Championships; in parallel each of the other continental governing bodies hold their own Championships.  The following year is the World Championships hosted by the International Wushu Federation.  (There is an abundance of coverage of these events online.)  

Intensive Courses

As often as twice a year we offer week long intensive courses in conjunction with IDCombat who train actors in the art to theatrical and cinematic fighting.  A lot of these actors use their San Shou Kuan qualifications as progression towards stunt qualifications.  These intensive course are predominently aimed at novice martial artists but we also use these as an opportunity for our other students to training for prolonged periods to develop and refine their skills.

Professional Development Courses

Throughout the year there are nmerous opportunities to attend seminars, training courses and coaching events.  These cover all aspects of being a professional martial arts coach and instructor.  They cover aspects as diverse as first aid and sports psychology; webinars on the protection of children and the vulnerable.   There is the National Three Level Coaching qualification; Judging and Referee qualifications and a host of other events.  They are held throughout the country and are great way of meeting likeminded martial artists.
