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
