October we went into full swing with our kung fu syllabus after a big season of performances. Most of our students are preparing for an end of year grading. The students who stood out were:
DRAGON - Asya Krepysheva. Kept up her usual level of enthusiasm and attending as many classes and performances as she can.
LION - Lochlan Graf. Great attendance and excellence in setting an example with techniques, etiquette and choreography.
WOLF PACK - Tyson Baker. Enthusiastic as always and a proud member of our academy.
Global Student Recruitment at UC also contacted us to provide a self defence workshop for international students from China who were living in Canberra on 15th November. We were more than happy to provide these two workshops and look forward to working with the universities in the future.
On Sunday 5th November 2017 the inaugural general meeting of the UCKFA was held on the campus of the University of Canberra. The purpose of the association is to provide UC students and the general public tuition in the asian arts - currently Chinese kung fu and Filipino eskrima, wushu, dragon and lion dance, although this list may be expanded upon in the future. The lessons are provided on the campus of UC and the association will be a UC cultural group governed by UC Life! The association is intending to present the minutes to UC Life! in the next 2 weeks and then open a club bank account and be declared a not for profit group.
Currently YHKFA is providing tuition to UCKFA on Saturdays from 1-3 pm. UC students and the general public from age 8 onwards are welcome to trial a free lesson and join as members to receive tuition.
The committee of the UCKFA was elected at the IGM and are as follows:
President - Dr Wilson Lo
Vice-President - Mr Jarryd Morton
Treasurer - Dr Sim Hom Tam
Secretary - Mr Jeroen Splinter
General Committee Member and Social Events Organiser - Ms Janine Walker
