            Si-hing and Si-je - senior student, elder brother or sister: After a student reaches grade 3 they             have the opportunity to become a si-hing (male) or si-je (female). This next step in a student's                 training and development requires they complete a course that will give them the skills required               to teach other students and to self analyse themselves through teaching others. Through teaching             a student can gain a better understanding of Wing Chun by constantly revising the basics and                   having to answer other students questions that will challenge them to excel further. Si-hings and             Si-jes will be exposed to elements of the more advanced forms that they would otherwise not                   have till much later in their training. This is so they get a better overall understanding of where               they are within Wing Chun and see how many more exciting things there are to learn.
