Hi guys!

A huge congratulations to our Peak Performance Phase One graduates! They have achieved some fantastic results in muscle growth and fat loss and are now just starting the Peak Performance Phase Two.

Phase One will start again on 31st October! So if you missed the boat last time you have a second chance at change!

Phase One had amazing outcomes, as follows:

Frances – body fat from 32.6% down to 27.2%; body weight from 67.8kg to 65.3 kg; and lean body mass from 45.69kg to 47.53kg.

Lynn – body fat 34% down to 18.8%; body weight from 79kg down to 74kg; and lean body mass from 52.14kg up to 60.08.

Nico – body fat from 19.7% to 15.3%; body weight 84.4kg to 80.1kg; and lean body mass stable at 64.7kg to 64.5kg.

Damien – body fat from 15% to 13.3%; body weight 92.3kg to 87.8kg; and lean body mass from 74.5kg to 78.4kg.

Everyone stripped fat and built muscle. They are fitter, stronger, leaner and are armed with an eating plan for life.

Phase 2 is continuing with fat loss but now they are in a building phase and looking better every day.

The next Peak Performance Phase One starts on Sunday the 31st October at 9am at the Headquarters in Redfern. The cost is $599 which covers you for the 6 weeks of education and monitoring.

To get to phase two of our course in the science of body recomposition, you must pay attention and put in the work in phase one.

Anyone wishing to do this online please contact me personally via email. This course worked by correspondance/online during lockdown so it can certainly work with the resources of an equipped gym now everything is open.

If you are in Sydney however, there is no reason why you can’t do this in person.

If you want to lose body fat and/or gain muscle, don’t miss this.

Get focused on your goals, sign up today! Email info@redboatkungfu.com to register.


Week So Far: Wing Chun, Kung Fu, Boxing and Kids Martial Arts Classes – BJJ to come!

Hi guys!

What a great week it has been already for training. We had a fantastic turnout on Monday with the 6pm Wing Chun class fully booked plus the lunch and 7.15pm Kung Fu classes getting off to a great start.

Last night was Boxing. It felt great to hit a moving target! We’re not making touch contact yet as per restrictions, but mitts and shields are allowed.

Today we have a full day of classes here in Redfern! Starting with the Wing Chun lunch class at 12.15, under 10s/Kids Martial Arts class at 4.15pm, more Kung Fu at 6pm and finishing with the 7.15pm class. The 7.15pm Wednesday class will still be very suitable for beginners in Martial Arts, but will focus on drilling the week’s themes, getting a good workout and foundations training.

Class bookings.

If your desired class is booked out, you can now put yourself on the wait list for that class and if a spot becomes available we will let you know. Otherwise, you can come in to do your own training even if a class is full as we do have the space to allow it.

Kid’s in Adult Classes.

Just a bit of housekeeping here guys! Having kids in adult classes poses a number of risks and for the most part we cannot allow this to occur. On the occasions that we do allow it, we will invite you/your child to the class, the child must train with their parent, and consideration will be dependent on size and weight, skill level, age and experience of the child. We appreciate your understanding on this matter. When your child is in their teens please feel free to contact us to see when and under what conditions your child may yet be suitable for attending some adult classes.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is on tomorrow at 6pm. Due to 1.5m rule the focus will have to be on conditioning and solo drills for Jiu Jitsu and whatever crazy things March has in store for you! It’s even really a good time to have a look at BJJ if you’re initially uncomfortable with the idea of rolling around on the ground with someone, as for the next 2 weeks you won’t be! So jump in and get acclimatised to the ground.

See you on the mat.


Freedom Day For Our Martial Arts Family!

Hi guys,

We are very much looking forward to re-opening tomorrow (freedom day!) with our first martial arts class being Wing Chun Kung Fu at 12.15pm, 6pm, then 7.15pm.

Monday at 6pm is fully booked so please look into either the 7.15pm or midday class. The rest of the week’s classes are filling up too, so please book in asap to secure your spot.

Booking link here.

Only 20 people can participate in each class but we can have almost double that in the kwoon itself. So if you have missed out on booking your preferred class and that’s the only time you can train, you can come in to do your own thing.

Current rules for training under COVID restricted conditions in Sydney are:

  • 1.5m physical distancing – we will be primarily doing solo drills in class. This includes BJJ.
  • Focus mitts, pool noodles and kick shields may be used. Take one set of mitts per person (rather than one set between partners) where possible.
  • Pick your partner and stick with them for the duration of the class.
  • Use your own 16 oz gloves and other protective gear. If you don’t have your own…. WHY??? We do supply protective equipment. Some we currently have in stock, some you may need to pre-order.
  • Clean whatever equipment you used aat the end class please!
  • Sparring classes will need to be cancelled for 2 weeks, sorry everyone…
  • Both doors at the Kwoon entry and the rear door must be open during class times, if you notice a door is closed please open it.
  • Fans need to be on during class times and TURNED OFF once training is over – again if you notice any fans left on at closing time please turn them off or notify the instructor.
  • Face masks do need to be worn whilst training indoors at this stage.
  • Please Temp Check when you arrive (over 37.5 is a high temperature) and check in using the QR code and confirm your class attendance on Clubworx.
  • If you have forgotten your phone only then do you need to manually sign in using the log sheet.
  • Wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitiser provided
  • If you feel unwell please stay at home and get tested.
  • At this stage, if you are 16 yrs or over you need to be fully vaccinated to train.
  • Please email your Vaccination Certificate (screen shots are fine) so that we can note in your membership file that it has been sighted. If you have done this already, thank you! You don’t need to do it again.
  • Where possible, arrive ready to train and/or shower and change back into your civilian clothes at home.
  • Please don’t expect us to bend any rules the government has put upon us, we cannot compromise the Kwoon.

We understand if all of these rules frustrate you, it’s just a matter of time now before we can train with masks off, drill together start sparring again. BJJ tragics… it’s only 4 classes of solo drills and BJJ specific conditioning… you can do it!!!

Thank you everyone!

See you Monday!


Sydney Re-Opens! Wing Chun Kung Fu is BACK on the Agenda!

Greetings and Salutations!

We are super excited with only one week to go to re-open our Sydney doors for training. Classes are already filling up, so dont’ forget to book – pre-booking is required for ALL CLASSES ie Wing Chun, True Boxing, BJJ, Fitness and Kids Martial Arts / Kung Fu Classes.

Kick off is Monday 11th October at 12.15pm for the Wing Chun Lunch Class, followed by Teens Martial Arts at 4.15pm, then Adults Kung Fu at 6pm and 7.15pm for the evening sessions. So get your gear ready!

There has been many questions about when we will be filming the new grading structure, the answer is ASAP. We are looking at starting this Thursday next week. To get it out there as quickly as possible it’s going to be a little rough and ready with not a lot of editing – essentially “for our eyes only”. I’ll keep you posted.

Peak Performers are starting to nail their diet and training . The just finished Hell Week. Congratulations!

I am expecting great things from them.

I will be making an announcement tomorrow regarding our end of year goals such as Gradings, Pre-Comp Training and the Advanced Butterfly Sword Seminar. This will be open to those that have taken up the sword already and can demonstrate a level of proficiency. So a Butterfly Sword revision class will precede the workshop.

Again, dates to be announced.

So get focused and get ready because we have serious ground to make up!

See you on the mat,

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Please be advised that the Kids classes are starting on the week beginning 11th October. While your children may be physically going back to school on the 18th, we are allowed to start operating again a week earlier …so we are! This is a shorter term (9 weeks), but we often run the kids classes over 11 weeks and we are live streaming up until we re-open.

(Last week’s live stream included a project to be completed by first class back! Please view here!)

There is only two changes to our kids timetable coming into this term, and that is the Saturday All Ages Martial Arts class will start at 11:15am, and the Teenagers Kung Fu class in Redfern is moving to Mondays. We are moving this class from Wednesday at 5:15pm to Monday at 4:15pm. The Monday 4:15pm class is for your older children aged 9+yrs. The Wednesday 4:15pm martial arts class is for your younger children aged 5-9yrs.

So all kids classes during the week will have concluded by 5pm leaving the mat clear for adults to safely warm up, train and spar prior to adult classes.

Please register ASAP as due to COVID restrictions we are limited to 20 per class!


Next year we will be focusing on expanding our kids program. The goal is to have kid’s kung fu classes here in Sydney 6 days per week! This will also mean having age specific classes and opening up to your even younger children aged 4-5. When we get to that point we can even start looking at school holiday programs. a “Junior Masters” program (for aspiring young martial arts and fitness coaches) and kids kung fu gradings will be more regular.

There’s lots to be done, but in the meantime let’s train hard and have fun.

See you on the mat!

ReOpening for your Sydney Martial Arts Training October 11!

Hey guys,

Well, it looks like we’re in a 14 day countdown! We are opening on Monday 11th October, if all goes to plan as the Government predicts.

If this is the case – and we hope it is! – you must book your spot in our Sydney classes ASAP. This is for all classes: Wing Chun, BJJ, Fitness & Conditioning, Boxing and Kids Martial Arts as all will have a cap of 20 people per class, as it stands now.

If we fill up for the class you’re after, try to make a lunch time class (12.15) or a late-evening class (7.15pm) as there are usually more room.

Finally, we will be able to shake off the COVID Lockdown and get rid of some ring rust.

With so much time to ponder, there are many new challenges on the horizon for us to enjoy such as: pre-comp workshops/courses that will simulate the pressues of gradings/competition, online private lessons, prepping for the soon to be inaugral Red Boat Kung Fu Friendship Games starting 2022 to name a few.

So plenty of fun to be had, but right now let’s get back on the mat, train hard and hit stuff.

See you on the mat,

Hi guys,

This message is a heads up to all 6 week challengers that signed up prior to lockdown and either got started on it, or lockdown commenced before you had the chance.

In the absence of physically being able to work with you in the current conditions, on the 1st of September we are starting for you what we call the “Peak Performance” course.

On Wednesday, Sifu will be laying the foundation for the following 6 weeks, this will include a fitness test, body fat/body composition, heart rate recovery test and more.

Like all of our current/active students, all of our 6 week challengers have had access to our Facebook Livestream Group for your day-to-day martial arts and fitness training, but Peak Performance will be seperate and will be for “challengers” eyes only.

Between now and Wednesday we need to know exactly what equipment you have at your disposal so you can choose (and we can create) the appropriate workouts for you. You will also need the Teambuildr App so you can check in every day and we can monitor your progress. Please contact info@redboatkungfu.com if you cannot find your welcome email and we will resend the app info.

This program is designed to educate and challenge you to get into your best shape ever. You must be completely open about your food intake, training, consistency, motivation level etc. We will be in your corner every step of the way. That said, you are ultimately responsable for your outcomes.

Your first task is to establish your goals – your weight/bodyfat goals, lean muscle mass, etc. If you find this difficult because you have never been in top shape before we will assist you in creating a physical blueprint according to your current condition. It will be challenging but ultimately achievable.

All current challengers will be contacted shortly. Anyone wishing to get on board has 3 days to make your decision! Contact either of us (Sifu – 0423610695 / Amy – 0421637298) ASAP to find out about cost and registration.



Hi guys!

Hope you are all well. We have been livestreaming every day for quite a few weeks now and hope that you are making use of it all. I know not everyone is on Facebook, but if you make a dummy account just for access to the livestream groups, it’s worth it. Just make sure you answer the questions, so we know who you are, as this is limited to current Sydney members and current Red Boat Uni subscribers. Below are the links to the adult’s group and the kid’s group. There is a new instructors group, but instructors, you will receive that link in a separate email. Sifu is streaming 4 days per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 8:30am) with a couple of mat chats thrown in on his off days, and I’m streaming twice a week for adults (Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm) and once a week for kids (Tuesday at 5pm).

Facebook Livestream for Adults

Facebook Livestream for Kids

Parents of students, and students with kids!

We know that your demands have expanded and there’s been pressure to be many different things. So we’re making an effort to find ways to help you. The kids livestream group is active again, their second class was on Tuesday night. A fantastic turnout! And we had a mat chat at the end… which for the younger kids, the ideas would have been big enough to plant some healthy seeds, but not necessairly understand completely, yet still have some useful strategies to do every day to enhance their well-being. If your child missed it, please give it a watch.

We will also be releasing a small (at this stage) series of meditations for the kids, suitable from about 5 yrs old onwards. Meditation is a great way to help your children be present – in the moment – manage their emotions and relationships. Each meditation will be geared for something specific. Todays one is a little introduction to how meditation can be useful and developing a safe place.

We also would like to share with you two resources. One is a FREE app for parents/care-givers/educators, it’s also Australian, it’s for 0-5 year olds, it’s simple and useful and it’s based on the most recent, current research findings in applyable healthy child development activities, strategies and principles. It can be found on: https://www.brighttomorrows.org.au/

Some of these principles and ideas – I believe, with a little creativity – can be morphed into guiding principles for communicating and supporting older kids. Still, there is a more age appropriate resource, also free and also based on current and applyable research. It’s full of great ideas and resources, it’s not an app, so not quite as user-friently, BUT it’s well set out and certainly useful: https://characterlab.org/

These resources are FREE and we do not recieve any monetary or publicity gains from sharing this with you.

If you or your children need to chat, or any of our members at all need us, please text me (Amy) on 0421 637 298 and I will call you as soon as I can. It could sometimes take up to 24hrs to respond as I work in an environment where phones are not allowed.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon, if not in person, then online for now will have to do!!!

This week’s meditation, “Introduction to Meditation and a Safe Place”:

Background music by Kevin MacLeod – Meditation Impromptu 03

Hi guys,

We hope you are all healthy, happy and overall well!

A week ago we sent out an email stating we were taking the moment / opportunity of lockdown to recalibrate. Thank you for allowing us the time to focus on us! Though we are missing you all very much.

Faced with the fact that this lockdown is definitely going on for longer than we would hope and even greater restrictions will be in effect as of Monday, consider us back.

As of tomorrow Sifu will be live streaming in our Facebook Livestream Group. His focus topics will be the Wing Chun Blueprint of Footwork, Blocks and Strikes. There will be mini challenges and mat chats thrown in as well. He will be live streaming every second day at 8:30am – so this week will be Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, next week will be Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and so-on.

I will be contributing to the live streams as well, though given my work commitments they will be at odd hours and irregular times! I will however be live streaming my workouts, they will mostly be stretching, moving meditation and forms, weight training and shadow boxing/heavy bag work. Oh and burpees of course.

See you on the mat!

Hi everyone,

We hope you are staying healthy and well during this lockdown. Hopefully some restrictions will be lifted at the end of next week, time will tell. We also don’t know what things will look like post lockdown. For the moment we are taking this opportunity to recalibrate, so things have been quiet from us.

Until we’re on the other side of this, stay fit and healthy!
