We are now 1 week into our term 3 classes with the emphasis on forms and applications derived from the animals. The highlight and emphasis of this term will be our annual demonstration for Floriade to be held on Saturday 17th September 1120 - 1150 on Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park. Our entire school will perform on stage with traditional animal forms and self defence demonstrations preceded by a martial arts play - Dragon High! This is a kung fu epic concentrating on a group of teenagers training in a school for the gifted and is a story of family and loyalty. All our students will hone their kung fu skills this term in preparation for this.
At the end of term 2 we held gradings for 9 beginners and 4 graded students. They were difficult gradings but some students excelled under pressure and clearly put in a lot of preparation for the event. Our Dragon and Lion students of the month are the two highest scoring students of that grading.
Dragon - Sanjiv Singh. Put in a huge amount of work into his workbook and theory which paid off on the day.
Lion - Rajiv Singh. A real success story, after coming back after a 4 year break and topping the grading overall.
Wolfpack - Julie Zhang. For being consistent in attendance and atittude at training.
