Hi guys,

Great weekend, brilliant seminar with John Will though we were light on numbers. You may have world class Black Belts on our mat to coach you, but John is the godfather of Australian BJJ and a wealth of knowledge, so try not to miss him next time (October 18th).

This week’s theme is about tactics and the theory of diminishment – physically and psychologically out maneuvering your opponent – don’t miss it.

Tomorrow’s True Boxing class will be covering the double bump and perfecting slip line drills. Again not to be missed.

Today’s Kid’s Kung Fu with Amy is about Wing Chun foundations, arm drags and sparring games.

Tonight 7:15pm with Mayur is Chi Sau drills to close contact striking and finishing off with sparring.

Remember, grading is coming up later this month! This Sunday Sifu is putting on a free workshop for white belts to help you with your grading material and assess where you’re at in relation to being ready to grade.

See you on the mat.

9am Conditioning with Frances on Saturday will start with a 2 round warmup, followed up nicely with AMRAP Death by Burpee, 2 x 2min boxing rounds and an about workout to finish.

10am Wing Chun with Sifu will be a recap of the week.

11am Kid’s Kung Fu with Damien will build on what’s been learnt so far and dividing up the more experience students and the newer students to target their needs.

FINAL REMINDER for John Will’s BJJ Seminar on Sunday covering Advanced Butterfly Guard. There are still places available to attend! Beginners, intermediate and advanced students are all equally encouraged. Friends from other schools are also welcome. Please pay cash on the day if you haven’t paid already… and be early! John runs a tight ship so be ready to kick off at 9am sharp.

See you on the mat.

 

4:15pm today Kid’s Kung Fu with Amy: working on round kick, fuk sau drills and hopefully we’ll have time for some sparring games!

6pm Wing Chun with Sifu: more work on guard destruction! Remember to check out Lomachenko – the boxer demonstrating a great deal of Wing Chun principles in his fight game.

Wing Chun Project:

At last Sifu’s end of year talk he mentioned a project I’ve been working on for this year. It’s at a stage now where I am looking for helping hands to get it moving forward. The project is for medium risk adolescents who have a desire to change, to participate in martial arts training in addition to workshops and courses directed at assisting them in making a transition to a healthier life. The project would include training 10 people in an accelerated coaching method (NLP/Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and several improvements to the school’s facilities and of course sponsorship of 10 “at risk” young adults to do the 12 month course. In order to fund the program we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe. I would like this campaign to be launched in 3 months time (and run for approx 3 months to raise the funds) – this is what I will need initial help with as a successful crowdfunding campaign requires good planning, something that I cannot do on my own. If you have interest in helping me, or would like to know more about the project please contact me at amy.spain.78@gmail.com or speak to me when you see me at the Kwoon. I have already recieved some assistance from some of you (thank you!) and some fantastic feedback from others including supportive studies on the effectiveness of programs similar to what I’m proposing.

If this goes ahead – and I really hope it does – we could be responsible for changing the landscape of many troubled lives.

It’s a busy weekend!!

Tonight’s 6:30pm Wing Chun class with Vadim is all about hands and feet chain linking combos on pads and incorporating into sparring.

Sunday starting at 9:30am (we’ll be open from about 9) is Andrew’s Birthday/Fundraiser Rollathon! Come in for a roll and/or donate some coin, it’s all for a great cause – rasing funds for disabled athletes. Andrew will be putting on a mini class afterwards so looking to finish around 11:30am
