A couple of weeks ago I graded my third pattern of Fujian White Crane Kung Fu. That pattern is called SHI ZI (The Cross).
So today the grading results came out and I find to my great happiness that I passed it. This means that I can now start learning the fourth pattern (...surprisingly :) which is called SHI SAN TAI BAO (Thirteen Wonders). Interesting!
This does not mean that I get a different sash like they do in Japanese martial arts. No, you get a sash when you've passed your first grading and then you keep that until you become a master and get the black sash. However, if you're an instructor you wear a blue sash.Follow @peterbe on Twitter
