ULTIMATE BACK WORKOUT SUNDAY, BEGINNER’S BJJ MONDAYS 6:45PM

Monday evenings at 6:45-7:15pm time slot will now be a BJJ beginner’s clinic So for those of you that have been sitting on the fence for Brazilian Jiu Jutsu, felt like you missed the boat or are keen to get your feet wet, stick around for the BJJ intro class on Mondays. Sparring can still carry on in the back half of the Kwoon.

Speaking of sparring, Wednesday evening’s Sparring clinic is returning this evening.

Sifu’s Ultimate Back Workout and Maintenance Workshop is on this Sunday at 10:30am so get your names down! Anyone who has had a back injury will know how important it is to look after your spine, and as a martial artist who loves training, there’s not many things more frustrating that being out due to injury. So come in on Sunday, learn how to strengthen, mobilise and maintain a healthy back.

Keep an eye out on our Tuesday 6pm classes, we will be seeing a return of it being a specialist class….watch this space…

See you on the mat!

Sparring Clinic Tomorrow’s 10am Wing Chun Class

Quick shout out for tomorrow’s Saturday morning class with Sifu. He will be running a sparring clinic, so please bring your gear: mouth guard, groin guard, 16oz gloves, fingerless sparring gloves, shin/instep guard and a level head!

See you on the mat!

BLACK BELTS AND ABOVE TONIGHT 6PM

Just a quick reminder that tonight’s 6pm class is for Black belts and above. Sifu has an awesome class planned for you all. For all other students, this only happens once every 1-2 months so all other Tuesday classes are for all levels unless stated otherwise. If you were wanting to get a workout in this evening and are not a Black, Gold or Red belt then come to the beginner’s 7:15 class, it’s still a great workout and no-one is ever above working on foundations.

Have a great night!

DON’T MISS SATURDAY’S TRAINING!

SIFU IS CONSOLIDATING THE WEEKS THEME AT THE 10AM WING CHUN CLASS

This weeks training has been all about soft targets: the throat, neck and eyes. This type of martial arts training is critical for survival on the street in Sydney! We will be adding takdedowns and chokes to capitalise on positions gained by attacking these targets.

See you then!

CHARITY DRIVE

THIS WEEKEND RUSSELL IS TRAINING FOR 24HRS TO RAISE AWARENESS & FUNDS FOR BLACK DOG INSTITUTE.

The campaign coined “Give it 24” is to raise awareness for suicide prevention. In Russell’s words:

“It is my intention to train for 24 hours. Now I wish to illustrate two very important aspects: one, that it will be a very tough and emotionally draining 24 hours; two, I will not be able to do it without a support team. People making the decision to take their life can get through those horrible moments when all seems lost. It will be tough and it will be emotionally draining, but they can work through it, if they decide to ‘tough’ it out and if they have some desperately needed support.”

If you would like to show your support, come down from Saturday morning onward. So far they have raised over $4,000 so very impressive!

Here is a link to his Facebook page for more information.

Alternatively you can go straight to his donation page here.

Thanks guys!

GREAT WEEK ON THE MAT!

Last Sunday, after stick fighting revision we spent the afternoon on Sensei George Adam’s mat for a seminar with Jean Jacques Machado. It was a fun day, learnt a lot.

Monday, Will was awarded his Blue/Brown belt. Will is one of those guys who is always training hard for himself and always happy to help others. A wonderfully balanced individual… well done again Will!

This Saturday is the first day of the first Spartan course for the year, it’s been a long time since the last one so really looking forward to it. We start a 12:15 – after the little kids have gone home. If you want to stay in shape this Winter I couldn’t recommend Spartan more.

Wooden Dummy Workshop is postponed one week. So get your names down for next Sunday (4th June). It’s a great workshop, not to be missed. The attention and detail you get from Sifu on the day is something you could never possibly get in class – there’s just not enough time to delve into so much detail.

Our next planned workshop is on back conditioning, coined: Ultimate Back Workout and Maintenance Workshop. It will be held on Sunday 25th June, run for 2hrs and cost $60.

There is a new page on our website that has all of our upcoming workshops and seminars, where you can view, book and pay. Simple. You can find it here.

That’s it for now! Make sure you book in for your seminars and workshops! Have a great weekend if we don’t see you!

OTHER NEWS…

Last week’s grading went really well, congratulations to Liam on his Brown belt! Put on a stellar performance. Well done to the teens! Nice crisp technique, Sifu was very impressed. A pat on the back to myself and Charlie for our Black/Purple Tips. Thank you to March and Andrew who both signed off of me being awarded my BJJ Blue belt, a welcome surprise… but most definitely a surprise to say the least. Thanks also to everyone who helped out and showed support, it’s always great to be amongst friends.

Melbourne was nice. We visited friends as you know, and saw the Van Gogh exhibition while there for a bit of culture. Thank you to everyone who put in while we were gone.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays – for the most part – I will be at my clinic in Chippendale. If you need anything re Kung Fu please text or email. If you need a treatment book in! Here’s a link to my website for more info on what I do: https://celestialdragonhealing.com.au/ otherwise I’ll be in for evening classes.

Sifu should be back on the mat as of tomorrow (Friday).

To wonderful days ahead!
