This grading syllabus forms the basic requirements for each grade. The number of new techniques slowly decreases as the grades get higher. By the time the students reach the Brown Belt level there are no new techniques. At this stage the students are expected to develop a deeper understanding and knowledge of the techniques and their performance of the techniques must improve.

Students are also tested on their ability to perform all punches, strikes and kicks with power in the systems that include them. This test is performed on suitable Bags, Air Shields, Striking Pads or Focus Mitts.
