This school was started in 1984 and since that time has been teaching Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Martial Arts weaponry on the north and south sides of Brisbane. There have been many Black Sashes that have been trained within the schools in that time, some going on to becoming instructors taking up teaching positions within the schools. Of these instructors only a select few are entitled to take the Instructors code. By taking the Instructors code in the Black Crane Kung Fu Schools it allows the instructor to be formally recognised by their fellow instructors, the school and its students.
To be eligible to undertake the Instructors Code the instructor is required to hold a current Black Sash and must have held a teaching position within the schools, as well as been actively teaching students in front of a class for more than two consecutive years. The instructor must also hold full national coaching accreditation with the Australian Sports Commission.
The ceremony for the Instructors Code is only preformed on the Schools Presentation Night as this falls in line with honoring Students and Instructors achievements for that year. The ceremony starts with the Sifu performing an opening ceremony by laying out candles in the shape of a pentagon representing the five elements of the Wu Hsing. This is followed by a brief tea ceremony were the Sifu welcomes and embraces the Instructor into the school. This is then followed by the instructors pledge, were the Instructor reads the schools Instructors Code out loud to the audience, after which the instructor signs the pledge in front of the audience. The Sifu then signs the Instructors pledge on behalf of the schools. The instructor formally bows to the Sifu honoring his acceptance into the school. The Sifu then performs the closing ceremony.
