kids kung fu redfern

 

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).

 

 

Friday 6:30pm class: continue working on set ups, getting hands and feet moving and sparring full kit at the end.

Saturday: 9am Conditioning, 10am Wing Chun, 11am Kids Kung Fu.

See you on the mat!

Morning all!

Tonight’s 6:30 Wing Chun class with Vadim is working on close range weapons: knees, elbows and the clinch.

9am Saturday morning with Frances is a Hero workout in honour of our Anzacs.

11am Saturday is the return of Kids Kung Fu classes! This is going to be a big term for the kids as they are all prepping for their next grading which will be at the end of the term in late June.

Being the beginning of term it also means term fees are due. Thank you to all the parents so far that have arranged term fees online, it really helps us focus on the kids rather than admin on the day. It’s extra helpful for this weekend too, as annoyingly enough, I won’t be there! If you missed the link to online registration here it is. If it’s not allowing you to submit the form it’s usually one or two checkboxes haven’t been ticked – they’re very easy to miss. There is also room to add your Active Kids Vouchers, I will adjust your total once you submit the waiver for review.

Sifu and I will be at a Kyokushin training camp tomorrow to do a BJJ seminar so make sure you have a smashing workout for the 10am!

Sunday is ANZAC Day. BJJ class is officially cancelled for the day, but some of the guys and girls may want to come in for a roll. If this is the case, please ensure you observe one minute’s silence before commencement of your training. If you’re not on the BJJ Facebook or WhatsApp group chat let me know and I’ll add you. If anyone plans on going in, that’s where you’ll hear it first.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

See you on the mat.

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.

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
