Next Sunday Sifu will be doing a 3 hour Workshop on all 3 empty hand forms. Starting at 10:30am – so still time to do BJJ first – and costing only $40! The following Saturday is our Autumn Grading…so this will be a great opportunity to flesh out the details and sharpen up your forms.

Sifu will be in Mackay next week, but we have all classes covered and all instructors know that all classes must have grading prep in all classes. Even if you are not grading, be here to help each other prep as you’ll want the same when it’s your turn.

The Grading Day is also considered an Open Day, so friends, family, locals and all are welcome to come and watch as it’s always an exciting experience .

Sifu’s latest video was on the 3 M’s of Combat. Remember to “like” the video! And subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already!

Have a great weekend!

Whatever your views on Australia Day are…

It is still a public holiday so we are closed, none of the usual rostered classes are on. Unless you love BJJ more than a public holiday, in which case March is keen to run a class at 10am tomorrow. So lets steer clear of both sides of the argument and make tomorrow BJJ Day!

See you then.

We all know flexibility is high on the list of importance in martial arts training!

So why wouldn’t you book in and come to the latest Kicking and Stretching workshop on offer?

Sunday 29th January is a workshop primarily on stretching and you will be given a 6 week program to follow. At the end of the 6 weeks we will reconvene to assess how far we have come! Which if you follow the program you are assured to have some fantastic results!

The workshop will start at 10:30am and will run for approximately 3hrs. Please arrive early so you can warm up and be ready to go when it’s time to start.

Cost is $60, and you can bring friends or family to this one as good flexibility is relevant to everyone and having a stretching buddy is super handy.

So get you name down at the desk, a Facebook event will be created shortly so it will be easy to invite friends. What ever the case we need to know how many are coming so we can have your manuals printed!

See you then!

Kids Saturday Classes

Kids 11am classes are back on as of Saturday 28th January! We hope you have all had a wonderful break and are ready to get back into it!

Forget your Gi today, it’s too hot!

It’s much cooler in here than it is out there…! However, let’s be smart about it, today is no gi day. Drink plenty of water, eat light.

See you tonight!

Morning Classes

What a way to start the day! I know a lot of you travel into the city from far and distant lands 🙂 but for those who are local, morning classes are a great way to set you up for the day ahead, and train hard before the heat really kicks in.

Monday and Friday mornings are Martial Xfit, a strength, conditioning and endurance circuit for enhancing your martial arts training. Tuesday mornings are BJJ Core, strength, endurance and orientation training to enhance your BJJ. Wednesday is Forms and Chi Sau, Thursday is Wing Chun. All classes start at 7am – officially finish at 7:45 – and are run by either Frances or myself (Amy).

Look forward to seeing more of you in the AM!! 🙂

Stretching Workshop

Our first workshop for the year is on Stretching & Kicking. The focus will be on the stretching side of things.

The workshop will run for approx 3 hours, by the end you will have an arsenal of stretches, so there will be no excuse NOT to achieve your goals. You will receive a 6 week stretching plan to help you along your way. We will reconvene in 6 weeks to compare how far we have progressed!

It’s $60 for the day, all levels encouraged to attend!

Hey guys and girls! As you all hopefully know by now, we are moving the Kwoon…it’s a bit weird just celebrating 30 years, then days later picking up the keys to a new location, but it’s also exciting. Classes are on as usual this weekend! So be sure to come in for the final Saturday […]

Book now for our 30 year anniversary party!
(It’s also Sifu’s Birthday!!)

We have booked the Altitude Restaurant at the Shangri-la Hotel in the Rocks for a late lunch instead of a dinner. What this means is that we have the whole restaurant to ourselves (arrive from 12 noon for a 1pm start to 4pm finish), from 4pm they need to prep for opening for dinner so we will then move on to the Blu Bar (adjacent to the restaurant) for mingling, drinks and watch the sun set.If you would like to turn this into a romantic night out then we have been offered a 10% discount on best available online rates for the evening. Please email me at info@wingchunway.com if you would like to make use of that offer and I will give you the promo code.

It is still a 3 course meal and drinks package. And it is still formal – suits for the guys, dress/gowns for the girls…unless you’re having an androgynous moment! Then what ever you like, just make it formal 🙂

We have booked entertainment for the day. Our friends from the Gallery Cafe (Mark and Pearl) are also former Moscow Circus hand balancers, but Mark is now a practicing magician and will be on the floor throughout the celebrations mingling and doing his magic tricks for you. We have also booked Mick on Wheels, a session musician, specialising in soul who will do a couple of sets for us in between courses, he was recently on The Voice and has come highly recommended by one of our own talented musicians “big” Josh. It’s going to be a great day, and Sifu will have much to say upon reflection of the last 30 years with you all.

It’s going to be a big grading this Saturday, we have 4 or more Black Belts grading, the kids are starting a more refined curriculum and we have an awesome after party planned…so make sure you’ve cleared the day!

red-boat-kung-fu-guest-liz-martin

Special guest Liz Martin will be playing at our after party!

…“I first saw Liz Martin play back in the folk infused days of the mid 90s, when every pub seemed to have an acoustic jam session and Sydney was awash with the sound of Jeff Buckley. It was clear, even then, that Liz had a certain quality which lifted her above the stylists and try hards. A pure beauty in performance that eschewed the demonstrative and instead, resonated at a higher level. She had the wise soul of a poet. A dyed in the wool Cohenesque stoicism.”…Ian Shadwell – Author, Music Critic

We saw her at the Old Fitzroy in Woolloomooloo last year and she was great, unassuming, great whisky voice and beautiful tunes. There will be a $20 cover charge on the day to go toward having her play.
