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 email@example.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.
