Hi guys!


Firstly, we’ve got a great few days of training planned.⠀

Tonight at 6:30pm Vadim will coach you through footwork and close range fighting (and a reminder to intermediate and above – Charlie’s run through is tonight at 7:30!). ⠀

Monday night Mayur will continue with hand fighting to clinch-work drills to fuse with your boxing skills. ⠀

Tomorrow morning Frances will start the day with one of her challenging workouts, Sifu’s on for the 10am and Damien has the kids at 11:15am as takedown mayhem continues, this time it’s low ankle shoot and side control.⠀

Wooden Dummy Workshop is 19th June. Please book in via this link or put your name down at the front desk.

We are taking pre-orders for the Gonziol tees. There are two style options and many colours to choose from so take your pick and get your order in!

See you on the mat.⠀

Inspired by Bruce Lee’s famous quote and Gonzoil Chilli Olive Oil (gonzoil.com.au) is the exclusive sponsor of our prestigious Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Team – Scuderia Gonzoil.

It’s all highly Gonzo (in part fictitious, see Gonzo Journalism by Hunter S Thompson) as there was only ever one release of Gonzoil Olive Oil and, Gonzoil is also not really sponsoring anything at Red Boat! (unless you take into account these awesome designs that keep coming our way). …get your orders in today!

Hi guys,

Hoping to see plenty in sparring sessions this week after Sunday’s efforts. Sparring sessions are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s from 7pm. Thursdays you can always stick around for rolling rounds after BJJ. 

Calling all senior and intermediate members to Friday night’s class. After Vadim’s class on Friday, Charlie will be going through his second run through prep for his Gold Belt. We need fresh opponents for each round ideally. Let’s see a good turnout for this. His Gold is getting close.

Looking forward to an awesome week of training! Don’t let this cold and rain put you off, it means you’ve got to push yourself harder to sweat! It’s perfect.

See you on the mat.


Hi guys,

As per the theme at the moment Monday 6pm will start with a Strength Endurance warm up. Sil Lum and Chum Kil. Dirty boxing bumps and follow up combos.

Expect more clinch work throughout the week and solid workouts to start.

This Sunday is the Free Sparring Clinic starting at 11am please book in here: https://bit.ly/3vTI4gI

You will all receive an invite to our member app very soon. This will make booking into and checking into classes a lot easier. You will be able to track your progress. You will be able to monitor your performance. For parents, you will be able to manage multiple children under the one account. It’s like the member portal only better.

Over the next few weeks I will be in touch with all of you to check in and find out what your goals are and how we can help. If I call at an inconvenient time just let me know, we can reschedule.

It’s a beautiful sunny start to the week. Let’s smash out some awesome workouts!

To directly book into this event click here or copy and paste: https://bit.ly/3vTI4gI to your browser.

Thank you parents and guardians for getting in early for the 9am reschedule of the Juniors All Ages! We appreciate your flexibility.

The grading itself was fantastic, great effort from all involved. I’m sure Sifu will have much to say in his Mat Chat early this week.

Stay focused. This month in Wing Chun we are working on our Chi Sau and Clinch game. This will also mean Dirty Boxing for Tuesday nights. BJJ… it’s where you guys live so, the core BJJ classes will continue as per March and/or Andrew’s plans and BJJ Foundations will continue to work on foundational material.

There will be one more Tip Grading (18th June) and one more Belt Grading (30th July) after which we will be easing back on the time between gradings.

The next BJJ Grading will be on 24th July.

Wooden Dummy Workshop is on the horizon. It’s scheduled for the 12th June. You can book directly here or copy and paste: https://bit.ly/393vTVt to your browser.

Finally, exciting news. Charlie is locked in for his Gold Belt on Saturday 2nd July! So be sure to clear that day in your diary.

Plenty to do.

See you on the mat,

Greetings and Salutations,

After a super positive coaches session on Sunday here are some of the things being implemented over the next few months:

After clearing the path with grading on Saturday there will be a new level of hand fighting coming on board. Seamless integration from Chi Sau, with an end-game of reversals to takedowns to ground and pound to finishes.

**REMINDER to parents and guardians, THIS Saturday’s Juniors Class is RESCHEDULED to 9AM to accommodate the Adults Grading.** (And the Conditioning class is cancelled this Saturday to accommodate the Juniors).

Boxing will be tasking dirty boxing to the next level with the eventual integration of your kicking game and a series of combos set ups fakes and feints for a sophisticated attacking game.

Conditioning will concentrate on strength endurance then plyo & explosive strength over the next few months. This plan is relevant to ALL classes.

With a year-end goal of a strong and balance all-round game for everyone, BJJ attendance is strongly encouraged. 

Finally don’t forget, Charlie is only 8 weeks out from his Gold Belt grading! Give him tons of support.



Grading Prac ALL CLASSES – 12:15pm, 6pm, 7pm (light, technical, controlled sparring) 7:30pm – all grading prac.

Juniors at 4:15pm is running as per usual.

See you on the mat,

Hi guys,

For many reasons… you really need to have your own sparring gear. Think OHS, think reliability, think ownership. 

You don’t need to go all-out and order some crazy stuff online, Australia makes great gear at great quality and prices. Ordering from us supports the school, but it also ensures that you are getting the correct equipment – this plays a major role in injury prevention.

Get your orders in now.

Classes today:

12:15pm Wing Chun – Frances
4:15pm Under 10’s JMAP – Amy
6pm Wing Chun Damien
7pm Sparring – Amy
7:15pm Wing Chun – Mayur

See you on the mat.
Red Boat Team


Hi guys!

The Belt Grading is quickly approaching… Attendance is a key element so get in this week, it’s your last shot at prep.

BJJ Grading this morning was excellent. Congrats to Dave, Cory and Jonathan! Thank you Andrew for running point and March as 2IC and all who came to show support.

Monday 2nd 6pm with Damien: we’ll run as grading with all forms, dummy sets then go to grading practice focussing on techniques and then finish with priming sparring round then can roll into sparring time. 

7pm Sparring: continuing on from the 6pm class, monitored technical rounds. Bring your fingerless sparring gloves so we can mix it up.

7:15pm with Mayur: second instalment of perfecting High round kicks, and utilising into sparring, grading practise and finishing off with Sil Lum Tao.

See you on the mat!
