In Fencing Master, badge colors indicate the level of training (Phase). The badge level system acts as an incentive for the student to advance to the next level of training.
Badge Level Promotion REQUIREMENTS
Each level in HKFM’s Badge Level System is full of meaning and philosophy. As a student advances from Blue badge to yellow badge, it symbolizes the knowledge and power the student has learned and experienced.
PROMOTION FEE =HK$380
PROMOTION TESTING : SKILL vs TIMELINE
To advance from one phase to another, students will need to qualify for promotion testing. Each student is different and will promote at a pace measured by skill and not a timeline.
When a student has accomplished each of these requirements, they will be given a promotion certificate and the respective badge which they can put on to their fencing jacket.
