Dear Mums, Dads and Guardians,

 

The next grading for your children is on Saturday 26th at 11am. If you have not downloaded already, please click on the link below for the grading curriculum:

Kids Grading Sheets

 

The cost for grading is $30 per child, please pay as you arrive so we can focus on assessments.

 

Additionally, as requested we ordered stock for children’s True Boxing T-Shirts. Since we did not have a pre-sale for kids, we are supplying all kids shirts at the pre-sale price of $39. (No hoodies, just the tees).

 

 

Hi guys,

After much deliberation, we have decided to postpone the first Belt Grading to mid-year. There have been too many changes in the grading structure to expect a lot of you to be ready for your belt grading yet. So class will run as normal this weekend. The next Tip Grading date will be announced shortly.

Sorry for any inconvenience to anyone, but we feel this will be the best for the majority.

Thank you!

Hi guys!

Hope you all had an amazing Easter. We were pleasantly surprised with the fantastic turnout last night! Numbers can drop off a little this time of year (Easter/School Holidays) but you guys smashed it! We’re seeing great evolutions in everyone’s skill set too, so well done for all of your efforts.

The next Tips Grading is coming up (Saturday 17th April) so let’s stay on track on focused. We know that there are quite a few of you that wanted a little extra time, well it’s now 10 days away! Let’s see some names down for grading tonight.

The Butterfly Sword Workshop has been pushed back to May 2nd which is a Sunday, and will start after BJJ at 11am. The cost is $149 for members (no training weapon) or $199 for members for a training weapon included. Non members add $50 to either. You can book and pay by clicking this link. 

Don’t miss tonight! Sifu will be running through some new knife fighting defence tactics! And the Beginner’s Course starts anew at 7:15pm

News on the True Boxing Tees: we have placed the order, but they cannot start production until 14th April. So the pre-order period has been extended. Get your orders in to take advantage of the discounted price! We have also added kid’s tees to the mix! So kid’s can get their pre-orders in now too!!

See you on the mat.

 

It’s DONE!

There may be some tweeks, typos and formatting overlooked… hope not… but the curriculum is finalised. Please download your next level! (links below)

Remember, this Sunday Sifu is putting on a FREE workshop to answer all of your questions about the new material. PLEASE WRITE DOWN ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS and submit them after the seminar as he may not get to all of them in the time provided.

Times are as follows:

(going for):

Blue Whites and Blues: 11am

Blue Browns, Browns and Brown Blacks: 12pm

Black Belts and above: 1pm

Black Belts and above can start at 11am as we are sure you will want to know what’s new on the curriculum (as when you go for Gold you are re-tested on EVERYTHING)

Hi guys!

So much going on this week! Finishing last week with such a strong school grading (adults and kids) was fantastic. Monday Sifu was in for what turned out to be a very successful surgery as far as the surgeon is concerned. Sifu is recovering very well, uncharacteristically not trying to do too much! Now tomorrow is the Gold Belt grading and our end of year party!

Friends and family are welcome to come to the grading. Kid’s and parents are welcome too! There’s only restrictions on the party as Atomic are fully booked. We have booked for 46 all up (6 on a seperate table if you can only stick around for a drink and go). At last count there were 5-6 luncheon spots still available, so if you have forgotten to put your name down there may still be space for you. If you are paying on the day please bring cash ($55).

Grading starts at 10am. After the grading there is also the Student of the Year Awards and Sifu’s year in summary/plans for next year discussion. We should be heading off to the Atomic between 11:30 and 12noon.

I’ve been getting some nice messages over the last couple of days from some of you. Thank you very much! Hope I put on a good performance for you.

See you all tomorrow!

Hi guys!!!

What an amazing grading day that was! Congratulations everyone!!! And what an achievement for our 7 new Black Belts! (2 brand new, 5 next levels) and our very first Junior Black Belt!!! Well done guys. As Sifu said, he can go into his op today feeling braver after seeing what you all did on Saturday. Thanks for making it such an inspiring event.

We need final numbers for the party this weekend!!! PLEASE let me know if you are coming to the Atomic Beer Project with us for lunch after the grading. Let me know if it’s just you or you’re bringing someone(s). The $55 includes a 3 course lunch.

We also managed to negotiate a “tall table” for 6 people for 1 hour to be added to our booking for people who can only stay for a short while, there is no charge for this but could book out quickly so get back to me asap.

Otherwise, if you plan to stay it’s pay per person – Atomic’s conditions for group bookings for 10 or more people.

Please let me know ASAP/TODAY they are pressing me for final numbers.

Thank you!!!

Hi guys,

It became quite apparent last night that all of the traditional Wing Chun aspects of the coming grading assessments need some work. We have only 3 weeks until the end of year school grading (12th December), that’s a lot of ground to cover in a short period of time.

So tonight’s boxing class will be 50/50, boxing/wing chun.

With the boxing we’ll keep it dirty adding some new tricks to our game that can not just lead into close striking opportunities but the potential for takedowns as well.

With the Wing Chun we’ll keep it strictly Traditional. Chi Sau (or for white belts Trapping Hands), Forms and Wooden Dummy. Boxing purists who are not grading feel free to work on your light/technical sparring skills.

I plan to stick around until late, so if class runs over and you can stay to keep drilling your material, I’ll be here.

Same goes for Thursday after BJJ. Let me know if you would like to come in from 7pm to work on grading material until 8/8:30.

In addition! Peak Performance starts this Sunday! It’s been condensed to 4 weeks so we’re done before the year (and Summer) is out. Get your name down. It’s a fitness and nutrition course that will give you the tools for the duration of your lifetime.

See you then,

Amy

Hi guys very excited about coming in tonight …I’ll be conducting a detailed striking class and going thru some of the combos in the revised grading structure which will be completed this week…Also the date for the Dragon Staff  is december 6th I rarely teach this weapon so jump on board ..Start time 11am  cost 149 …No weapons needed the school will provide…unless you want your own (add $50) Also the last peak performance course for the year starts on the 29th of this month… We had fantastic results with the last one, eveyone stripped fat and put on muscle and now have the Blue Print for life …This course  will differ as we’ll be condensing more information into a shorter  course from now on…Plus the new Peak Performance support App we trialled was a great success and is now a staple inclusion of the course…So ill see you guys Tonight !!

Ps Dummy should arrive any day! And school grading 12th December!

Parents, quick reminder that the kids class is on at 9am tomorrow!

Tonight’s 6:30pm class will be taken by the Eastern Bloc duo John and Alex and will cover grading practise (last hit out before tomorrow’s Wing Chun grading) and of course one of their special workouts.

Tomorrow, before the kids at 9am, Frances is putting on a quick 30min fitness class, starting at 8:30am and will be a 12min Tabata plus an 18x30x10 pad workout.

Grading starts at 10am, get in early to work off any nerves!

See you on the mat.
