Hey guys,

Quick shout out. Sifu mentioned last Saturday that he wanted to put on a free forms workshop this Sunday. He didn’t realise at the time that tomorrow is Father’s Day.

So not to interrupt this special day, the forms workshop will take place next Sunday instead, after BJJ (11am).

See you on the mat.

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!


Last call to get your names down for this Sundays Wooden Dummy Workshop, starts at 10:30am, runs for 4 hours and is a great in depth study of one of the most iconic training apparatus’ of Wing Chun. Book here for your spot.


Tonight is still Wing Chun for all levels, next week though is for seniors only. In addition, Sifu is currently taking Wednesday mornings at 7am for Forms/Chi Sau class.

So 7am mornings are now: Monday Martial Xfit – Amy; Tuesday BJJ Core – Frances; Wednesday Forms/Chi Sau – Sifu; Thursday Wing Chun – Amy; Friday Martial Xfit – Amy.


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!
