The Standard Course is for those of you wishing to take the course casually; that is, to study the videos lessons at your own pace, and not be obligated to write the (multiple-choice) tests, or get certified. There is no limit to how long you will take to complete the course, as long as you continue paying the subscription; however, you cannot jump to another video lesson without having watched one completely; and you cannot sign up for the Second-Level Course without completing the First.
This plan is also ideal for those who are currently practicing Wing Chun at another school, and don't want to switch schools, but wish to just explore the Xuan Wing Chun System for additional knowledge.
The Certified Course is for those wishing to be certified for having completed the Xiao Nian Tou Course. There are three levels in this course. You must write the multiple-choice test after each video lesson and score at least 75% to get access to the next video lesson.
In this plan, you can, if you wish, submit a 15-minute video for evaluation at the cost of $30 each time. This can be done as many times as you wish. However, the videos will not be graded; only commented by one of the instructors.
At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate stating that you've completed the Xiao Nian Tou Course with passing grade under the Xuan Wing Chun System. This would establish your Wing Chun level when you join a physical Wing Chun school.
The Master's Course is for those of you wishing to be certified as a Xuan Wing Chun Academy instructor. With this certificate, you can officially teach your certified level of the Xuan Wing Chun System in your city. You are eligible to becoming a representative of the Xuan Wing Chun System in your city.
To acquire a certification, you must score at least 80% on each multiple-choice test after each video lesson, and also pass the evaluation tests on the videos you submit to the instructors for grading.
There are three levels in each course. You will need to submit a 15-minute video for each level for the grading. This will be free of charge. You will need to score 80% on them. If you fail, and need to resubmit a video, there will be a $30 charge. If you wish to submit more videos for evaluation, you can do so at the cost of $30 for each submission.
In this Plan, you will be invited to any group Zoom session conducted by Master Xuan or by any Senior Instructor. Currently, the Instructors can speak English, Chinese, Spanish, and German.
If you wish to do private Zoom sessions with Master Xuan, the fee will be US$50 per 40-minute session.
You can also meet with the senior instructors privately at the fee you and your instructor agree upon.
The Doctorate Course is for those of you wanting to make a career out of teaching Wing Chun under the banner of Xuan Wing Chun Academy. You will be eligible to apply for the representative position of the Xuan Wing Chun Academy in your country when all requirements are met.
You will need to score at least 85% on the multiple-choice test after each lesson. You will be allowed to submit 15-minute videos for grading when you reach each of the three levels of the course free of charge. You will need to score at least 80% on them. If you fail, you will be allowed another submission free of charge. Any subsequent submission will cost you $25.
You can also submit as many 15-minute videos for evaluation as you wish at $25 each.
In this Plan, you will be invited to any group Zoom session conducted by Master Xuan or by any Senior Instructor.
If you wish to do a private Zoom session with Master Xuan, the fee will be US$50 for each 40-minute session.
You can also meet privately with a Senior Instructor at a fee that you two agree upon.
Note that the Standard Option contains just the video lessons with no supporting text material or quizzes. The other options will include quizzes and other supporting videos and documents. The other difference is in the certifications and the amount of time the instructors will be involved with the student in the course. The higher the level of the course, the more time the instructors will interact with you.
Also, when you sign up with one option initially, you can upgrade or downgrade. In upgrading, you will need to meet the protocols of the higher level. In downgrading, you just go to the lower payment plan if you were paying monthly subscription. However, if you had paid for the one-time special rate, then you will lose the discount. The monthly rate will be applied to the months that you had spent on the higher grade, and the balance amount will go towards the new downgraded months.
