Youth Kung Fu Belt Ranking System

Kung Fu is about the skill one gains through
HARD WORK carried out CONSISTENTLY OVER TIME.

While some schools focus on learning a large number of complex techniques and forms (kata), our focus is on basics, moderate contact continuous sparring, and Tai Chi Push Hands (stand up wrestling). Here at Tai Chi Kung Fu of Long Island, rank is awarded for consistent HARD WORK on basic techniques carried out under increased pressure over time.
