No class this Thursday, December 6th. Sorry!

Category : Uncategorized

My deepest apologies, but an unavoidable clash has emerged for this Thursday, December 6th, so I have to cancel the qi gong/tai chi class for that night only. I try my best never to cancel classes, especially at such short notice, so I beg your forgiveness.

Any questions, give me a call on 0414 445 579. All other classes will continue as per the previous email.



End of term and restart 2019 dates.

Category : Uncategorized

This post is to let you know about all the finish and restart dates for classes, and other events surrounding the Xmas and New Year break. Firstly, here are the relevant class dates:

Adult Kung Fu Classes
Last class for 2018 – Wednesday 19th December
First class back in 2019 – Monday 21st January

Kids Kung Fu Classes
Last class for 2018 – Monday 17th December
First class back in 2019 – Monday 4th February

Qi Gong/Tai Chi Classes
Last class for 2018 – Friday 21st December
First class back in 2019 – Monday 21st January

Xmas Party
There will be a Xmas party for all our schools in Sydney on Saturday 22nd December. It will be a bbq/picnic in Centennial Park from 11am until 2pm. If there’s rain, it will be at the Sydney school on Goulburn Street. 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.

A local Xmas dinner for our own school will be organised for the last week of the year, 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.

Please remember that membership fees for the year will be payable once classes resume in 2019. 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 2018, and we still have a few weeks left. We look forward to an even better year in 2019.

All the best, happy Xmas and New Year.

Alan and Halinka.
