Xmas Party
There will be a Xmas party for all our schools in Sydney on Saturday, November 30th. All Kung Fu and Qi Gong students and their friends and families are welcome to attend. If you can make it up, let me know and I’ll try to help with some car pooling options.

This year we will be holding an evening dinner at Hannibal Lebanese Cuisine in Glebe. To keep things easy, we will be going with the Hannibal Feast which is $45 per person and consists of the below mouth-watering foods.

A starter of Lebanese bread and authentic dips including hommos, baba ganouj, labne, chilli dip, accompanied with mixed pickles, tabouli, fattoush followed by falafel, potato coriander, kebbe, sambouski meat and our succulent skewers – lamb, chicken and kafta finished with Lebanese coffee or tea.

There is also a kids menu available for $12 for those wanting to bring the little ones, and vegetarians can order off the menu or go with the vegetarian feast for $40.

A local Xmas dinner for our Illawarra school will be organised, probably at the Thai place over the road, but I will confirm details later. If you’re keen (all Kung Fu and Qi Gong students are welcome to come along) please let me know.

Fees
Please remember that membership fees for the year will be payable once classes resume in 2020. These will remain at $75 per person, payable before the end of February, please. Class costs will remain the same for the time being.

That’s it for now. Please help us spread the word about our classes by telling family, friends, colleagues and class mates. Word of mouth is the best advertising we can get. It’s been an honour and an absolute pleasure to teach and train with you all during 2019, and we still have a few weeks left. We look forward to an even better year in 2020.

All the best, happy Xmas and New Year.
