YI QUAN KUNG FU – New Kungfu Timetable starts on the FEBRUARY 13, 2017

We will now have 4 clear curriculum groups Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Instructors,

Kids Beginners – White & Yellow Sash
We have some wonderful changes in curriculum which allow White and Yellow Sash to train together as the beginners group.
For the Kung Fu Kids the White/Yellow Beginners classes are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 4.30pm, All levels Friday 4.30 – 5.30pm and Saturday 9.00 – 10.30am.

Kids Intermediate – Orange & Green Sash
The Intermediate classes now will start at 5.30pm not 5.15pm. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 5.30 – 6.30pm. The reason is simple, starting at 5.15pm and having cross over time, a STORM generally warmed up the students, sometime well and many times not. I want a qualified Instructor take the whole session for Intermediate. I believe their standard will be challenged and improved, including fitness and flexibility. There will be no Yellow Sash students in this class.

Kids Advanced – Blue, Brown Sash +
Their class is now Monday 6.00 until 7.00pm. No Instructor less than an Adult and no less than Black Sash 2nd Degree will take this class. With no lower graded students in the class we can concentrate on these levels knowledge and performance.

Falcon Adults Beginners – White & Yellow Sash
The afternoon classes continue, with the only change being Tuesday 5.15pm class is now 5.30pm. The Night time classes continue but the time and structure will change. Thursday night [our quietest night] has been dropped in favour of the STAY SAFE adults. Saturday 11.30 class will not continue, we will encourage all students to come to the 9.00am class.
All other night classes, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday will continue but the format is changing. Classes start at 7.00pm for all levels White Sash through to Black Sash + at 8.00pm White & Yellow Sash bow out and all Intermediate [Orange & Green Sash] all Advanced [Blue Sash and above] stay until 9.00pm.
This change alone will assist the Instructors to spend quality time at each level, with each student, raising the standard and quality of training.
