League Cup 2021-2022

Dear Students: From 27th September 2021 a  new 'league' will commence (following on from the successful 2020-21 League),

with students competing for a trophy at the end of the 'season' (which is 9 months in duration).


It is different from any Opens held over the last fifteen years because the student who finishes first in the table (left side / top are seniors, the right side / lower, juniors) will win the main trophy. Juniors who place 2nd, 3rd and 4th will also win a trophy. Top three in Seniors only win a trophy. 

How are points allocated?

Points are awarded to ten students in each table every week. So

attendance, noticeable skill improvement gained outside of class

plus the ability to closely follow what the instructor states during

class is of critical importance. Not only will you advance up the table

as a result, you will improve in your chosen discipline. Regardless of

where you are in the table, act with humility at all times.

What is the difference between a 'senior' student and a 'junior' student?

This definition was refined over the years - quite simply, because the standard improved so much that a new standard by so many of you was reached.

Senior Student

A Student who is on Syllabus 16 of Wing Chun, Rank 4 of Jeet Kune Do, or 4th Kyu in Karate (Tai Chi students do not take part in this league).

Junior Student

A student who is on Syllabus 1-15 of Wing Chun, Proficiency Rank 1-3 of Jeet Kune Do, 9th Kyu-5th Kyu of Karate.

Tuesday 28th June 2022: FINAL Tables Announced

PLEASE NOTE: Students on holiday means that points from 1 to 10 may not be awarded. For example,

if eight students attend, points from 3 to 10 will be allocated.

In the event of a points tie on the final day of the league, the student who is awarded the higher number of points for that final week will be placed in the higher league position.

NOTE: This December, 'double points' will be awarded for students who are training in weeks 3 and 4 (w/c 20th December, bearing in mind that in week 4, w/c 27th December, there will only be a select number of slots available. To qualify for double points, you need to have trained in weeks one and two. 

Why am I doing this? Well, historically, December has always been my poorest month in terms of lessons completed, and it is a small way of motivating some of you to keep an eye on Christmas for sure....but both eyes on your training. I wish you all luck for this period and beyond.
