Training Syllabus

Please select the grade on the right hand side of the page to take you to the Kyokushin syllabus  requirements for each grade.

Dynamic Stretching & Warm-up Excercises.

Although not part of the Kyokushin grading syllabus, all students should familiarise themselves with the 17 hand techniques and 21 leg techniques. Created by Hanshi Steve Arneil as warm up exercises and now used throughout the IFK and other Kyokushin groups as a dynamic stretch and to develop strong limbs. 

Due to the benefits of this dynamic stretching at Elite Fighting Arts, we also use the 21 Leg Technique (click word link for video) exercises for the Tsuyoi-Kakuto syllabus, as a grading requirement for 10th Kyu. Click on the pictures below to see a larger image of the exercises where you will also be able to zoom in if required.

17 Hand Techniques.

21 Leg Techniques.

There is no fixed syllabus for Muay Thai Kickboxing at Elite Fighting Arts.

The syllabus for Tsuyoi-Kakuto training is not as formally structured as Kyokushin and does not therefore require a whole section, however a syllabus guide for students has been attached below.
