The progression in Kali Sikaran is built up by 5 student phases where the practitioner learn the different parts from basic moves into reactions, flow and selfdefence applications. To improve performance and progression each phase consists of 6 or more blocks that are pretested with something called ownership. When a phase and every block are understood there is an examination to make sure the student is confident enough in the skills learned to move on. After the 5 student phases there is the titles for different levels of Guro which start with Kadua Guro (equivalent to 1st Degree Black Belt).

In 2013 we launched the “Current Program” with the last updated concept to raise standards with the best tools there are on the market. We use consistent check ups and clear goals for the practitioner and instructors to make sure the progression leads to a successful result. We are always tracking results on examinations and looking for improvements for practitioners and instructors.

Here’s a brief description of our grading system requirements:
