Happy New Year to all students and instructors, and welcome back to training for 2016. I hope you had an amazingly relaxing festive break with family & friends, and are now ready to get back into studying this great system of Wing Chun Kung-Fu.
There are a few changes and updates to tell you about for the start of the year, so make sure you read the below carefully!
I have streamlined all class start times to begin at 8pm, so don’t turn up too early. I hope this will help people get down to training after work, as sometimes the old 7.30pm start was a bit of a rush. All classes still run for two hours and so will end at 10pm. See the new group class timetable for full details.
Also, the Monday evening classes will now be held in the Art Room at The Malden Centre, Blagdon Road. It’s a bigger space and there is free parking after 6.30pm, so I look forward to seeing you along there. Details of this class can be found on the updated New Malden Classes page, as are details of the 7SG+ class at New Malden Studios on Tuesday evenings too.
There are no changes to the Kingston-Upon-Thames Classes at present. I’ll see you at the Kingfisher Leisure Centre on Wednesday evenings as usual.
The new FWTS uniform designs are now in the trial stage, as I need to test the new T-Shirt fabric during training. We expect them to be complete and available to order by the end of January. For now please continue to wear whatever you wish to classes, including the old UKKFF designs of course, and you’ll be able to order the new kit once I get everything sorted.
2016 Events Calendar
I’m currently putting the finishing touches to this year’s events diary. Once complete all details will appear on this website, and i’ll also email a PDF to all members. This should allow you to plan your attendance at special workshops, seminars and gradings throughout 2016, and perhaps book time off work in advance if required.
As the image above says: Make 2016 the year you learn Kung-Fu! You are all already doing this, but new beginners are always welcome, and a Taster Class only costs £10 – with no obligation to continue. Please spread the word, and you know anyone who would enjoy getting stuck into this great martial art, just get them to contact us and we’ll get them into things.
That’s all so far this month. Welcome back, and i’ll see you in training.
