NRCFAI Grading

Rudi Bowe

The Namibia Ring Contact Fighting Arts International (NRCFAI) Kickboxing Academy held their second grading of the year at the Kickboxing Gym in Walvis Bay.

The kickboxing grading exercise at RCFAI Kickboxing Academy was held to determine how students progress throughout the year.
Belt grading systems are used by kick-boxing clubs as a way to both inspire and demonstrate student’s advancement in the sport.
A white belt is given to a student as soon as he or she enrolls at a kickboxing club. The student needs to perform all required tasks and pass a number of tests and drills to earn the next colour belt. The challenges and requirements depend on the kickboxing school. Some institutions also have levels within each grade.
These show how much the trainee has improved through the phases until he or she is ready to move on to the next grade. There are corresponding exercises, requirements, sparring matches and tests along the course to ensure that the trainee is well-equipped and is competent enough for the belt the trainee is wearing.
A total of forty students took part in this year’s grading, after which all students received a certificate and a belt, and walked out as proud champions in their own right.
The RCFAI Kick-boxing Academy has very high standards and the club is producing champions and maintaining exceptional standards. The support from parents at the event was phenomenal and students inspired other youngsters to get more people involved in the sport.
Throughout the event it became clear that the trademark of a true champion is to stay humble.
