Dear Parents,

This is a reminder that it is the kids kung fu grading tomorrow. It starts at the normal class time of 11am. As with the disruptions this year, only a small number of children are ready to grade, but all of them will experience the grading.

The grading cost is $30 and should be finished by 12:30

9am Conditioning class is 3 x rounds KB punisher. Boxing. Kicking and 300 rep core workout! OUCH!

10am is with Sifu and is a full revision of this week.

Today’s lunch class with Sifu will be a continuation of this week’s themes.

Tonight with Vadim at 6:30pm is a follow-up from last Friday kicking class, working on chain linking kicking combinations.

Tomorrow at 9am is Conditioning with Frances, get ready for a killer workout!

10am is with Sifu and will finish up this week’s theme and lead into next week’s.

11am is Kids Kung Fu with Damien! They will be working on core skills. Sparring Etiquette. Hand sparring, grips and the tie up. Grading will be this term.

Tired of blocking punches with your face?

Make sure you get in today at 12:15 or 6pm tonight. Theme for this week is detailing the round kick and working on your defense.

Monday and Wednesday 7:15pm classes are Wing Chun Foundations, tonight is with Mayur and is about foundation hand fighting skills moving on to trapping and light sparring.

Wing Chun Kung Fu in Sydney

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

So, things are starting to wake back up. We’ve had a few of you enquire about when we may physically re-open, the short answer is we actually don’t know. We know as much as is available to you in the media and until recently the NSW government has refused to give a timeline as to when gyms and the likes can open their doors again in our state. Just this morning however, our Premier has stated that she will provide us with a timeline this week. This we are looking forward to hear.

We assume it will be the end of this month, though really do not know. Thank you all for your support and patience, we will keep live streaming schedule as it is with the exception of this Saturday’s 10am which will be pre-recorded, as we are having a couple of nights away up the coast to see family.

Kids classes have been so much fun. They will continue. The timetable will be reduced back to two days a week – Monday and Wednesday at 4pm. Now that school is back it’s time to ease back a little on the Kung Fu so they have time and energy to balance their activities.

What has been apparent is the importance of separating the age groups. So while both classes are open to all ages:

Mondays are targeted toward the over 8’s and Wednesday are targeted toward the under 8’s.

What this means in practice is that:

On Mondays the younger kids will focus and follow on as best they can, they may not understand everything but as long as they do their best, that’s the main thing.

On Wednesdays the older kids will need to practice patience and self discipline – when I’m chatting to the younger kids do some more repetitions of the technique or punching/blocking/footwork combo.

This timetable is starting this week, so tonight’s kids class is directed at the over 8’s and this Wednesday is for the under 8’s.

See you tonight for either Kid’s Kung Fu at 4 or Martial Xfit at 5:15pm!

Cheers,

Amy

Thank you everyone for your support! We had a couple of fantastic park workouts before the new lockdown restrictions have further limited us to max 2 from same household training. We’re averaging 10 people watching (and hopefully training!) our livestream live. If you miss it you can watch it later as it’s saved in our Facebook group RBKF Live Stream. It’s been great touching base with you all every morning.

Something that we have mentioned in the live stream is, now is a great opportunity for you to ask questions and make requests. We can tailor our classes for you. So send in your requests on Facebook or info@redboatkungfu.com

We started recording for Kid’s Kung Fu yesterday, we’re still working on the format so would love some feedback from parents. Parents please join our Red Boat Kids group page to view the lessons. At present we are not live streaming for the kid’s classes but are pre-recording them both for Facebook and what will be a new membership/course on Red Boat University. They are set out in 3 sections/3 seperate videos: 1, workout; 2, technical (looking at strikes, forms or a technique); and 3, defensive training – so blocks, footwork and self defense strategy or defense focused techniques. Please offer your feedback.

We miss you all!!!
