Category : Uncategorized

We’re very sorry, but there will be no tai chi/qi gong class on Thursday February 21st or Friday February 22nd. We do our best to cancel classes as infrequently as possible, but sometimes things come up that are unavoidable. All other classes this term are going ahead as normal. Any queries, please give me a shout.

Also, this Saturday, February 9th, a bunch of us will be teaming up with Sydney and the other Australian schools to do a Chinese New Year parade all over Sydney’s Chinatown between 10.30am and 4.00pm. We’ll be visiting shops and businesses with two lions and letting off 29 rolls of firecrackers throughout the day! Come and see us – just listen, you’ll find us.

Fees
Please remember that membership fees for the year are payable now classes have resumed for 2019. These remain at $75 per person, payable before the end of February, please.

Changes to Qi Gong/Tai Chi class locations

Due to the closure of the Kiama Holistic Centre, we have to move the Qi Gong/Tai Chi classes to new locations. Times remains the same, but new class locations are below.

MONDAY morning class
9.00 to 9.30 am Beginners
9.30 to 10.30 am Regular class

This class will now be at 20/3 Brown Street, Kiama, which is in the Quarry business area (Brown Street is opposite the Fire Station), in unit 20. As you go up the ramp into the complex, it’s the first unit you see at the top of the ramp. The number 20 is clear above the door.

THURSDAY evening class
6.00 to 7.00 pm

This class will now be at the Masonic Hall, 46 Collins Street, Kiama. PLEASE NOTE: Due to an existing regular booking at this location, there will be no class on the second Thursday of each month. I’ll send a text reminder each month about this. If we can find a better location for regular classes, we will, but for now this is the only location available at this time slot.

All other classes not mentioned above remain unchanged – same times, same locations.

As ever, any questions, please call Sifu Alan on 0414 445 579 or email [email protected]
