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 🙂

White Crane Gung fu – Session Four

We had an extra class this week today.

While classmates worked their forms for the grading today. So I worked on my soft white crane form and got further into the movement and further corrections.

Below is a video of the form I’m practising. I’m at about 0:47 so far.
