Some disruption to classes in November.

Category : Uncategorized

With deepest apologies, I have to cancel some classes through November. We try our best to keep classes running as regularly as possible, but with a small school, only myself and Si Jie Halinka to run things, and our young son to care for, sometimes missing classes in unavoidable. So please note the following classes and dates. If any class you attend (kung fu or qi gong) is not specifically listed below, then that class will go ahead as normal. Only the actual classes listed below are cancelled:

Qi Gong/Tai Chi – Thursday 2nd November

Qi Gong/Tai Chi – Monday 6th November

Qi Gong/Tai Chi – Thursday 9th November

Qi Gong/Tai Chi – Monday 20th November

Kids/Juniors AND Adults Kung Fu – Monday 20th November

Kids/Juniors AND Adults Kung Fu – Wednesday 22nd November

Qi Gong/Tai Chi – Thursday 23rd November

Any questions, give me a call or email. And if you’re not certain about any class, you can always text and check that day. I’ll be able to respond to texts throughout these periods, but allow plenty of time.

Qi Gong and Tai Chi class restructure

Category : Uncategorized

We have heard on a number of occasions that people can be a little overwhelmed with how much content there is in our qi gong class, particularly for new beginners. We’ve listened to this feedback, and we’re making the following changes to classes to better accommodate all levels of learning. If you are a student already, you can continue coming at the same times you always have and will see no significant change to class. Beginners will be encouraged to start earlier with the first hour of class. Any questions, please give me a call on 0414 445 579 or email [email protected]

Here are the changes: From now on, classes will start half an hour earlier, and the first half hour will cover basics and introductory exercises with a more hands-on teaching style. The rest of the class will follow the existing format.

Therefore, new beginners can come for the first hour, more experienced people can start half an hour later (at the same time they are currently used to) and stay for the rest of the class. Of course, if people are keen to do more, then beginners are welcome to stay for the entire class, and experienced students are welcome to come earlier and do the extra training. So qi gong classes will now be as follows:

Monday:

9.00am to 9.30 – Beginners – basic exercises and 18 Lohan short form (Dragon, Tiger and Crane).

9.30 to 10.00 – Regular class – warm-up, basic exercises, full 18 Lohan form.

10.00 – 10.30 – San Jiao exercise, Siu Lohan, Dai Gik Kuen.

Thursday:

5.30pm to 6.00 – Beginners – basic exercises and 18 Lohan short form (Dragon, Tiger and Crane).

6.00 to 6.30 – Regular class – warm-up, basic exercises, full 18 Lohan form.

6.30 – 7.00 – San Jiao exercise, Siu Lohan, Dai Gik Kuen.

Classes will probably run a little later than the above times most days. If you are a student already, you can continue coming at the same times you always have and will see no significant change to class. Beginners will be encouraged to start with the first hour of class. Any questions, please give me a call on 0414 445 579 or email [email protected]
