These are the levels and stages of training the in the Choy Lee Chun system. Each represents a state of development in the practitioner. While each trainee will learn the entire system, most practitioners will end up specializing in one or a combination of animals. There are two additional animals: Grasshopper and Dragon, not listed. These are White: beginners , and Grey/Purple: Chung-Si (Grand Master). Each of the colors has elemental, structural and directional movement associated with it. On average if a practitioner goes to class 2-3 times a week he/she can reach Black Sash level in 5 Years. With personal training generally one's progress can be accelerated, especially if the student has great dedication. To apply to the program go here.
