Your First Kung Fu Class
Congratulations on taking the first step. Here’s a list of things you should be aware of for your first class:
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts. This allows us to meet with you to explain a little about our history and how the class operates and then pair you up with a training buddy.
New people are paired with a senior to ensure they get the best attention during the class.
Wear loose fitting long pants and a plain t-shirt. No shorts, singlet tops, or offensive markings/alcohol advertising.
You can bring a drink bottle if you wish or purchase one on site.
If you come with an open mind and a good attitude you will enjoy yourself.
We welcome you to your own martial arts journey.
The Kung Fu School Horowhenua (Foxton) branch was started by Gow Lian Brady in 2009 (incidentally Gow Lian Brady came from the Levin Club which was formed by Simo). Gow Lian Hansen now runs the Foxton club, as well as the Levin club.
The Kung Fu School Horowhenua runs children (ages 7-12) and teens/adults (ages 13yrs+) classes. These are held on Tuesday at the Foxton War Memorial Hall and Friday in Levin at Fairfield School. Students are encouraged to train at both venues utilising the fact that the Horowhenua School has two training locations.
The Horowhenua School caters to many towns in the Horowhenua region including Foxton, Waitarere, Shannon and Ohau. Our classes are varied and on occasion we make good use of our location – think beach training and the fresh outdoors! Come try a class today.
Hi, my name is Lance Hansen and I am the instructor for Foxton and Levin.
I started kung-fu in 2011 after friends of mine told me they had been going to classes. I took my daughter along to try a class, we both joined and have been training ever since. I love the family atmosphere at kung-fu, everyone is supportive and encouraging no matter what your age or ability level is.
I have continued to train for all these years because I am constantly being pushed and learning new things. I love the passion that Sigung and the other instructors show when they teach a class and I try to show this in my teaching. I have been able to train with Tai Sigung Lai and other senior students on their visits to New Zealand and travel around New Zealand to attend demonstrations and gradings.
I spent time after obtaining my black belt as an assistant instructor in both the Foxton and Levin schools developing my teaching skills and I am excited to now be running these schools. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and like seeing them learn, grow and succeed. I would encourage you to come along and try a class, you have nothing to lose and you might just find a new passion like I did.
