Grading History & Theory
In Kung Fu lineage is extremely important. It shows who you have been taught by. And a teacher with a good lineage and good reputation will only recognise a student as a teacher if the student is worthy. So if you are recognised by a teacher from a strong lineage then it acts as an endorsement. Your lineage will also tell what you have learned. It will tell who your Kung Fu Family are. And in the traditional Chinese way of praying to your ancestors and asking for their help and wisdom, the stronger your ancestors, the better the help that you will get.
We will gradually tell you the stories of our ancestors. For now here are their names which you should learn for your grading:
