Hey guys and girls!

We had a great time away, we recharged, refreshed and are keen to move ahead.

Our next Beginner’s Course starts this coming Tuesday (18th April) and will be running both during the day 11:15am-12noon and in the evening 7:15-8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So spread the word! It’s a great way to get started especially if you haven’t trained in martial arts before but would like to, or if you haven’t trained in martial arts for many years and would like to get into it again.

We have had a lot of feedback about travel times to the Kwoon during the day, on how it’s been difficult to get the right amount of time for your lunch break to make it in to train. So we are trialling reducing the lunch classes to 45 minutes. Lunch classes will start at 12:15pm as usual, but finish at 1pm. And like any other class, you can stick around after class has finished to do your own training. We hope that this will ease the pressure on a lot of you and look forward to your feedback.

Before we left on our holiday, the lovely Stacey Kouros from Stacey Kouros Design came in to do an assessment on the Kwoon to give us some direction in painting/decorating. I’m excited! The Kwoon is going to look great once we’re finished, and we’re asking you for help in doing so. On the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd April we will be prepping and painting the school and are looking for volunteers! So if you can make it in to help for any period of time over that weekend please put your name down at the desk or email me at info@redboatkungfu.com stating the day and times that you can be of assistance.

On Sunday 30th April Sifu will be providing a workshop on Advanced Stick Fighting, details on the content will follow shortly, but the start time will be after BJJ at 10:30 and will run for 3 hrs.

Lastly, the Mid-Season grading will be on Saturday 13th May, so stay focused, train hard, train smart and have fun.



Hi guys and girls,

Sifu and I are on holiday this week, so we have the wonderful Damien, Frances, (big) Pete, Mayur, Walid, Alex and March taking classes while we are away. This week’s theme is on takedowns. So have some fun with it!

The morning classes are only operational on Tuesday and Thursday, Thursday’s being open mat so do your own training. Will let you know if there are any changes.

We have some people booked in for trial classes, mostly in the evening, so please make everyone feel welcome and at home (I know you will!)

If you need to pay for anything please pay cash and write a note for what it’s for and who it’s from and I’ll adjust everything when I return.

Reception’s not great here so text or email is best if you need to contact us.

Thanks guys! Have a super week!

So parents, rather than cancelling the kids class it is on early.

Get in early! Pack your bag the night before, warm up before the grading to burn out excess nerves and be ready to go!

You’ve all been working hard so will all do great on the day. Thank you to everyone who’s not grading but have helped you get this far. If you’re not grading on Saturday please come as it’s a fun event.

BJJ guys graded earlier today and looked fantastic, all belt presentations will be on Saturday.

Good luck!

See you all then.


4 Weeks 8 classes! Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7.15pm – 8pm.

The purpose of the course is to ensure that you receive the best possible initiation into our school.

Your foundation skills will be developed in every session and every class will finish with the Sil Lum Tao form.

The course is open to everyone from all levels who would like to brush up on the basics.

The course is designed for beginners in Kung Fu, beginners in martial arts in general, and beginners in our system of Wing Chun.

If you are already a member of our Kwoon then you are welcome to join in on classes at no extra cost. (it is considered a rostered class so if you are on a 12 Block Pass it counts as a lesson). If you are someone interested in assisting in classes, if not taking classes in the future, then we recommend you attend also.

If you are not a member of our Kwoon, but would like to do the Beginners Course only, then the course cost is only $99. There are no additional costs during the course.

Book your Beginner’s Pass now!

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!
