As our year came to a close several students were outstanding in their commitment to training and preparation for the December gradings, along with our weekend Wolf Pack classes. Our Wolf Pack classes have now evolved and taken on a new discipline. We have been fortunate enough to have the services of Ares Nie, a former Level 2 National Athlete in China for Wushu. He has been teaching some of our dedicated students the basics of wushu and later this year the basics of dragon dance. The students of the month of December were:
Dragon - Sanjiv Singh. Very dedicated in class putting in 100% effort and this was evident in his excellent grading mark. Also putting his hand up for weekend training and to participate in the upcoming demonstrations for Chinese New Year.
Lion - Tyson Baker. Always disciplined in class with no complaints and has been also keen for extra training. Although it was New Year's Day and not technically December we can't ignore his effort during our New Year's Day 9am Mount Ainslie Walk during which he ran up to the summit from the War Memorial in just over 15 minutes...wearing winter clothes!
Wolf Pack - Rajiv Singh. Hasn' t missed a wushu lesson yet and is obviously trying his hardest, working through his pain barrier!
