We've had almost a month in our new home at the Zido Hub Chatswood (top floor Lemon Grove). Thanks for your patience as we've slowly put in the finishing touches to phase one (still no desk, we'll get there) and also with the timetables.
We have made some changes to the Chatswood timetable starting from March 1 (Sunday). Other location times stay the same.
8th march comp
This one crept up on us. Entry form and info pack below. This is a great comp for students who are keen to get more practice in both sparring and poomsae (or individuation and pairs/team poomsae).
Please send Master ZiChuan the registration form by Sunday 1 March (send a photo is fine)
We have another addition to the instructor team!
Master Gem Zhang is a 4th Dan Black Belt recommended to us by Winny (they train together at UNSW).
Gem has done taekwondo for around 14 years and has taught kids classes for her original dojang for a number of years. She moved to Sydney in 2019 to study Masters of Media/Journalism at UNSW. Gem also trains with Instructor Andy and other members of the national poomsae team.
Our club is 50/50 male female and we have been looking for a female instructor for a while, we're excited to have Master Gem on board!
Our coaching team is now more robust with 3 Masters (Steve, ZiChuan, Gem), 2 Instructors (David, Andy, with Sydney on leave to USYD) and 5 Assistants (Daniel, Sebastian, Winny, Annie, Mel).
Master Gem will be taking female only class and Fundamentals class at Chatswood plus some more assistance for the other Saturday Chatswood classes.
Krav Maga with Master Jeson
We had a great introduction to Krav Maga with Master Jeson from Spartan House Indonesia on Feb 16.
MJ brought his vast range of experience and shared it with the group along with different perspectives and some same perspectives shouted in a different way.
The session was so well received we will be inviting Master Jeson back on the 23rd and 24th of May to run more in depth (and physical) Krav Maga courses including a special course for parents who want to learn some simple but very practical self defence.
