Grading & Syllabus

 

 

The Requirement of progressing through our system is 50% or above - your belt will change (upto 3rd KYU)

 

----------------------------------

49% or less = FAIL

 

50-69% = 1/2 Grade Pass

 

70-89% = Grade Pass

 

90-100% = Distinction

---------------------------------------

 

 

 

E.G. - If a student is a very capable high level Green / 6th KYU but not quite Blue / 5th KYU as 1 or 2 requirments has not met the required standard ... Half grade will show a natural level of progression!

You cannot "skip" grades - the experience gained will be invaluable.

 

WFMA Freestyle Kickboxing Syllabus

 

This syllabus has been written and created by Sensei Chris West 4th Dan - He has created this system with the view of a supporting his students of a complete striking system for Ringsports. Styles include the following: Boxing, Kickboxing, K1-Rules & Muay Thai.

 

All of these versions of Ringsports have different rule set to compete in, you will find that a lot of these striking techniques are very similar and even transferable across the four entirely different sports.   Chris West is a very experienced martial artist with almost 25 years in training; he was taught by Master Brian Barnes in the Salford & Manchester area in the North West of England, Brian has decades of experience and trained dozens of champions both Amateur & Professional – and still continues to offer Chris help, guidance and advice with his deep wealth of valuable knowledge.   Chris West has achieved multiple honours at national/international and world level, withhin the sport for  competing.

 

Since opening and running his own full time club in 2015 Chris has been working on creating a more complete system to give his students a better understanding of the different types of Ringsports and also to be competent and capable to compete within each of the styles rule sets should they wish.

 

(Boxing, Kickboxing, K1, Muay Thai)

 

This ‘Freestyle Kickboxing’ system will assist and support students whilst also creating a benchmark for assessment of competence in terms of a martial arts grade via (KYU / DAN)   Chris West has had numerous discussions with the President of the W.K.O. Master Jon Green (6th DAN, World Champion) to discuss and review his system for ‘Freestyle Kickboxing’ and ratification for his system to be recognised as a martial arts grading system.  After discussions the outcome is that the ‘WFMA Freestyle Kickboxing Syllabus’ is officially recognised, ratified and fully approved by The President of the World Kickboxing Organisation. (W.K.O.)
