All International Hong Chuan Chenshi Taiji Quan Academy-qualified Instructors of Level 1 standard and above are eligible to apply to become Affiliates of the Academy.

Please note that this page intends only to give a brief overview of the Affiliated Schools Programme and nothing on this page shall form part of the Licence Agreement for Grandmaster Salvatore Cafiero (referred to generally as the 'Affiliate Agreement'). You should seek independent financial and legal advice before making any commitment or entering into the Affiliate Agreement.

Benefits of Affiliating
Licence to teach Hong Chuan Chenshi Taiji Quan Kung Fu.
Affiliated Schools receive a licence to teach Grandmaster Salvatore Cafiero's unique training programme, Grandmaster Salvatore Cafiero's Hong Chuan Chenshi Taiji Quan Kung Fu, and use its Grading System exclusively within an agreed territory for the duration of the Affiliate Agreement. Grandmaster Salvatore Cafiero's Hong Chuan Chenshi Taiji Quan Kung Fu has been endorsed by the world's leading authority on Kung Fu, Grandmaster Liu Chengde, and has produced many highly skilled Kung Fu exponents, such as the Academy's Senior and Chief Instructors.

Official Certification of Students
Upon successful completion of a Grading, students of the Affiliate will receive official certification in the form of a Grading Certificate and Badge subject to payment of the Grading Fee set out in the Schedule of the Affiliate Agreement.

The International Hong Chuan Chenshi Taiji Quan Academy recognises the membership of all Affiliated School students and current students of Affiliates may transfer to an Academy Headquarters or Branch and use their remaining Annual Membership. They may also continue training at the Grade or Level they attained at the Affiliate subject to the Academy's Absence Policy. Transfer between Affiliated Schools is also possible, subject to the student obtaining a Letter of Release from their current Affiliated School.

Current Affiliated School students may also access selected seminars and workshops at the Academy. Fees may apply.
