KA Martial arts Children's Syllabus

As you can see below, the syllabus is extensive! 

I have not broken the syllabus down into belt category as it all depends of the circumstances of the student, such as age, current ability, reason for training, desired outcome etc. One of my most important jobs as a coach is to determine the needs of the student, this will dictate the order in which the student will learn the syllabus.


Below is everything a student will learn from white to black belt.

[NOTE: Please keep this for your eyes only. This syllabus has taken me many years to build and adjust.]
