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.

Hi guys,

Tonight’s Wing Chun with Vadim at 6:30pm is working the clinch game, delivering strikes and getting the back from the clinch. Progress into free-flow sparring (16 oz gloves required – please bring your own or order a pair with Amy)

9am Saturday is Conditioning with Frances – not to be missed! As you saw in last week’s live stream she smashes!

10am with Sifu is Wing Chun. There will be some grading practice during the class, all levels should still attend even if you have no intention of grading this spring (Sep. 19th) it shows support for your training partners, leadership and an opportunity for you to hone your skills without the pressure of being assessed on them.

11am is Kids Kung Fu with Damien will be all about structure and drilling the core skillsets for guards, footwork, blocks and strikes.

See you on the mat.

What a fantastic day on Saturday. Great turnout, thank you one and all, so very proud of all belts awarded with obviously a huge mention to Dave and Frances. Massive milestone. Congratulations “Red Devils” it makes it all worthwhile.

So onwards and upwards, this week is all about attacking the back, a strategty all Wing Chun warriors need to know. Get the back, attack the back, control the back. Tonight’s class will be taken by our accomplished Black Belts John (Kraken) and Alex, as Amy and I have a breather. Tomorrow for a bit of fun I will be coaching true boxing with a tribute to Lomachenko. Looking at what makes him tick with some of his best tactics and training drills.

See you on the mat.

Hi guys,

Tonight’s 6:30pm Wing Chun class with Vadim is…. more kicking! We will be exploring techinques against a round kick.

Tomorrow is 8:30am Conditioning class with Ross and 9:30am kids Kung Fu class with Damien.

10:30am is Dave and Frances’ Red Stripe grading.

New rules for gyms and fitness centres come into effect as of midnight tonight so while we will most certianly have the space to accommodate everyone wanting to watch, please ensure we all maintain social disancing rules (unless from same household).

After the grading we will move on to the Cauliflower Hotel to celebrate their efforts and the school and Sifu’s birthdays!

See you on the mat.

Hi guys,

Don’t miss tonight’s Boxing Class at 6pm at the Redfern Academy. Tonight we will be working on the shoulder roll.

This Saturday is a ceremonial event consisting of Frances and Dave’s Red Stripe grading, the Academy’s 34th Birthday and Sifu’s 60th! The start time will be 10:30am. Friends and family are welcome. DO NOT MISS THIS! Afterwards is lunch upstairs at the Cauliflower Hotel.

***Parents please be advised that the kids kung fu class will start at 9:30am, there will be no 11am class as the ceremony will most certainly run over time.***

Crazy conditioning people, since Frances is grading Ross has put up his hand to take the Conditioning class which will start early at 8:30am. So get in early for a great workout.

A reminder to everyone that celebrations for Sifu and the academy’s birthday plus Frances and Dave’s Red Stripe grading are next Saturday (1st August) starting at 10am. Then, the plan is to head to the Cauliflower Hotel for lunch.

The school grading has been moved to early Spring.

See you on the mat.

Today’s classes are 12:15 and 6pm BJJ don’t miss them! Adult contact sports, as of yesterday, are amongst the approved activities in NSW restriction criteria. That being the case, still remember to maintain high levels of personal hygiene.

Tonight’s class is working on grading flow drills for blue and purple belts, finishing with flow rolling – 4x 3min rounds. Andrew’s plan for BJJ is also working on foundations, so make it in one way or another!

The last Kids Kung Fu class for this term is this Saturday. Please parents, it’s “pay as you go” for what has been the remainder of this term. Usually $18 per class, but given the current circumstances we have reduced it to $10 per class for this term. Please pay at front desk to Sifu Rick, cash is preferred unless you are paying an accrued amount. Next term a discount of 30% will be allocated to all children’s Term payments to offset the forced shut down of classes in term one (for existing members only).

 

See you on the mat.

 

Woohoo!

Well we’ve been back for 2 weeks now and the vibe is getting stronger everyday. Yesterday was a hoot, I had a very action packed agenda but we spent a large portion of the class having a crack. I think everyone finally felt “we’re back”.

My mission this Winter is to get everyone in top shape for Spring and Summer, so not only will we be doing some challenging high intensity training, I will alwso be sending out a video every second day on diet and nutrition advice (including meal ideas) plus layers of the Winning Mind.

I’m super excited about the schools birthday on the 2nd of August. Lets start taking names for the grading and the party.

See you on the mat!
