This year we have decided to move from our home at the AIS to Radford College to pursue closer ties to the school and be more accessible for students catching public transport. Our new training facility is in the G Wigg Sports Centre. It is best to access the entrance to Radford off Haydon Drive in Bruce , turn right at the roundabout then park closet to the Sports Centre. Our room is on the left after walking through the entrance.
The classes are now longer being 90 minutes although the last 30 minutes are optional for students who are pursuing more training time.
Our classes at UC are still on Sundays at the refectory.
We had a tough grading in Term 4 in 2018 and we wish to congratulate the following students with their new levels:
Marcus Hunter - Junior White Sash Dragon
Liam Hunter - Senior White Sash Dragon
Liam Whiting - Senior White Sash Dragon
Jesse Lo - Junior Blue Sash Lion
Tyson Baker - Junior Blue Sash Lion
Tyson Baker will undergo a further assessment to upgrade to an adult Wolf Pack Black Sash system to attain Black Sash Level 4.
As we prepare to welcome in the Year of the Pig these are the exciting developments for 2019!
AIS CLASSES COMMENCE ON MONDAY 4th FEBRUARY 2019
Our backbone of the academy starts again when school starts - Mondays and Thursdays 4:30 - 5:30 pm at the Combat Centre at Building 14, Australian Institute of Sport. Term one will concentrate on basic strikes, kicks, blocks and grappling and it is a great time for a beginner to start! Several of our students have passed recent gradings so will be keen to jump into a new level!
FREE LION AND DRAGON DANCE CLASSES FOR LUNAR NEW YEAR
We are already flat out training for Lunar New Year so if you keen to give us a hand for a multitude of performances don't hesitate to join us for these free training sessions at UC. All welcome!
Our training times are Sundays 6 - 8 pm for Dragon and Wushu
Mondays and Thursdays 7 - 8:30 pm for Lion Dance
BIGGER AND BETTER TRAINING SESSIONS ALL YEAR ROUND AT UC
Our regular Sunday training sessions at UC will be revamped to make them much more efficient and effective for all who want to learn. Remember you do not have to be a UC student to come to these sessions. These sessions will act as a third lesson each week to complement the Monday and Thursday classes so kung fu students now have the option of 3 different training times each week which they can change and use depending on their life circumstances. We are all busy with other commitments and life events so 3 sessions each week will give you flexibility from week to week.
These lessons at UC will start again on Sunday 24th February 2019 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm. They consist of:
6 - 7pm YHKFA kung fu training. For students who only want to attend kung fu they can just come to this session only. However we welcome students who want to stay on for additional training
7- 7:30 pm Training in Zi Ran Men and Muay Thai with Mr Will Chen
7:30 - 8:30 pm Canberra Dragon Dance - Lion/Dragon/Percussion training with Mr Rex Li, Mr Ares Nie and Ms Evelyn Wu
