End of 2017 is near..

Hello All

My back issues had persisted much longer than anticipated but i am for the most part on the mend. But unfortunately my Instructor has ceased classes for the Holidays while he recovers from Surgery. So when he returns i will continue the classes again in 2018, but as i write in my last post i’ll be trying out other Martial Art systems such as Hung Gar, TKD and Taichi.

I did in fact try a Hung Gar class before my back pain came back again and it was fantastic, the students and instructors were all focused, putting 100% into the class, with a strong emphasis on overall fitness and the basics of punches and kicks with Pads and such. There was even a little bit of forms work near the end of the 2 hours class. I did have asthma-like problem at the beginning of the class as it was a particularly cold night that day, which effected my chest. But it did not ruin the overall experience.

I was not expecting the Hung Gar to be as good as it was, especially the students. But i was really impressed with the quality being exhibited compared to various Wing Chun classes and seminars I’ve witnessed.

So i end this with hoping that you will all continue your own training into 2018. Have a great christmas and a new year πŸ™‚

Hi Folks

Long time no post – Sorry everyone for this. Β Life has been very very busy with Work, Wedding preparations and so forth.

So as soon as my back pain has gone away i will be getting back to training. This will not just be Bai Hi Quan (White Crane) but also i am looking into additional systems to study , this may either be Karate or Taekwondo. Tai Chi is also on the list for me to check out as there is a new instructor in the area.

It also looks like i have much work to do with the look of the site as well to think about.

I’ll be posting again soon guys πŸ™‚

White Crane Gung Fu – Session One

So i’ve just had my first two houre session today and it was exhaustingly good! my whole body feels worked out and i made good progress with the first movements of one of the forms taught today.

We covered footwork mainly for the first hour and then the next hour was a lot of push ups such as knuckles,wide grip and reverse hands come to mind. We practised a punch and block with the pads at the end of the class.

i have alot of work to do with my breathing was what I was thinking during and after the session.

Edit: I haven’t been able to remember nor do I know how to explain every detail of what we did in the first lesson but I will be sure to take a notepad to jot them down next time to enhance these details on the blog πŸ™‚

Now time for a rest.

Night All!
