What an excellent week of grading. Ending on Saturday with many turning out to test. It was an extremely hot day and for those testing for Pre primary and technician levels for six hours it was an endurance test training so intensely in that heat.
Well done to everybody. Especially Joe, Liam, Steve and Maurice reaching Pre primay and to Craig, Second Technician and Sihing Dan with his fourth Technician. You all did so well.
Another excellent afternoon of dynamic training. More applications from all elements of the Wing Chun system. Knife, Stick, counter throwing and much more. And you will see from some of the pictures the ladies really getting into it.
Well done to every one who tested for their respective grades on this second week in March. It always really impresses us how everyone increases their “fire” on these occasions, really delivering an exceptional standard at all levels. But, here is a special mention to Kallen Newick to which we give a distinction on his level one and two grade, his concentration, power, preciseness and delivery shone out, especially by being at this level and was recognised by us as the evening progressed. Distinctions are extremely rare and Kallen should be extra proud of this achievement.
Well done to you all, we look forward to seeing you in four months time and more so to those who decided not to test this time around to give themselves that extra time to develop.
The second of these specialised series of seminars, with applications taken from throughout the Wing Chun system. Everyone worked their way through the three hours experiencing new possibilities. Scenarios covered assaults from opponents with stick then knife also through grabbing and punching and kicking. Look out for the next.
Special congratulations to Dan Anketell-Jones and Nick Leeves who passed their pre Primary (Pre Technician) level today 28th January 2017. Really good testing at Hildenborough. A lot was was well demonstrated and a lot was learnt. Well done guys.
Another year comes to an end and we revisited the Spice Club for our end of year celebration.
Lots of familiar faces and many new ones, great to see so many there. Great to be part of such a happy and enthusiastic organisation.
We visited Brighton and graded students from Brighton, Lewes and Crowborough. The standard was very good, the enthusiasm was in abundance and the end result spoke for itself with a great atmosphere and quality Wing Chun.
Congratulations to all that tested this November from student level one to 11 the standard was excellent. Look out for next news post as more grading to come.
Saturday 6th November saw a fund raising event with Sifu Tony at Hildeborough with all money raised going towards Duchenne research via “Chasing Connors Cure”. A massive thank you to all the students who took part. An interesting and rewarding day with students training programs and some extra unusual application possibilities.
Saturday 15th October saw the arrival of four new first Technician grades. Sam Webber, Mark Steele, Wayne Helsdown and David Carlton achieved the level first technician and with it the responsibility of always demonstrating the high standard that it infers. They have all worked hard over the past years to reach this stage. We congratulate them and wish them well as they now strive for the next, no easy task.
