Due to attendance issues, we will no longer be training on any Bank Holiday Mondays from here on out.
As for this month you should all by now be aware that we will NOT be training on 13th of this month due to the hall having a pre-booked session that over-lapped our time also Spring Bank Holiday coming up on the 27th of this month.
For those who only train on a Monday this is obviously an issue as we have just the 20th for you to train on. I would ask those people if at all possible they could make arrangements to do some Thursdays this month. After all it used to be the primary day for training so it should be within most of your abilities to do them. We don’t want people falling behind with their grades and 1 lesson a month would do just that.
Any difficulties please inform master as soon as possible.
Please note that training IS ON AS USUAL on Monday 6 May 2013.
Due to a prior arranged event at the training hall, there will be no training on Monday, 13 May 2013.
The Shi’hing School of Kung Fu has very recently moved training premises to a more functional hall.
The school has never had it’s own safety mats, and we have had to rely on previous halls’ mats; many of which were badly damaged and ‘technically’ unusable.
Due to the cost of just a single mat (and I have calculated that we will need a maximum of 10), I am currently researching various methods of fundraising to purchase some mats that the school can finally call their own.
There will be several small events over the next few months to try and raise enough funding to purchase these much needed items of equipment.
In the meantime, if you know of a local business that is interested in sponsoring a small, friendly, family-based martial arts school then please get in touch. In return, the school can offer your logo to be displayed on the website, and all future publications from the school.
Please note that Thursday, 18 April 2013 is the last training session at Huyton Hope Centre. This is due to the unstable future of the hall. When we return to training after our short break, we will be in the new hall.
There will be no training on the following dates:
- Monday, 22 April 2013
- Thursday, 25 April 2013
- Monday, 29 April 2013
The classes will resume at 7pm on Thursday, 2 May 2013 at:
Tarbock Village Hall
The hall is situated next door to, what once was, the Brick Wall Inn.
Please aim to be at the hall between 6:45pm and 7:00pm. Classes will commence at 7:02pm.
Further to this, please note that there will be no training on Monday, 13 May 2013.
Greetings! As most of you are aware, our current premises for training is undergoing review. We have been given the news that unfortunately, the funding for the hall is coming to an end, and the hall will be closing completely later in the year.
With this news, I am currently looking for a new training premises within the local area.
It is a shame, as the hall we are in at the moment is nicely situated, and has mats readily available for our usage.
Keep checking back here for progress, and I will let you know should anything arise.
The Shi’hing School of Kung Fu would like to wish Graham R. a very happy birthday today. Hope you have a wonderful day.
There has been a little bit of a re-arrangement on the website.
You will notice that the ‘Quotes’ page has now been removed completely, and a new page has been added entitled ‘Interested?’.
The ‘Interested?’ page is a general outline of information for potential students to the Shi’hing School of Kung Fu.
I am contemplating removing the ‘For Students’ page completely, as there seems to be no interest. Now is your chance to save the page. This page is for YOU. Anything goes on here… Your drawings, photographs, film / book reviews, hints / tips… This page does not have a ‘set theme’. This means that it doesn’t have to be Kung Fu / self-defence / martial arts related. You can hand your work in to me personally, or email it over to email@example.com
Please note that Monday classes have now been opened to everyone. Potential students who wish to join the school can now attend the Monday sessions if Thursdays are difficult to attend.
Keep your eyes out for a new page to be added.
‘Quotes’ will be full of… Yes, you guessed it, quotes from the famous, from martial artists (newbies, professional and famous), and from fighting films.
If you can think of any martial arts related quotes, or ‘inspirational’ quotes that give you a bit of “yes, I agree. I will give it more effort”, then please let me know and they will be posted on the page.
