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 in Palmerston North has been open since 1996 under the direction of Sifu. Sifu has over 40 years martial arts experience. He runs a balanced class where he knows the importance of working hard but also having fun while you train.
The Palmerston North club has now grown in size and attracts many new students due to word of mouth. Since Sifu started teaching here we have had 23 schools open throughout New Zealand.
Sifu’s most senior student is Simo and she also teaches here with her wealth of martial arts experience.
I began my martial arts journey at the age of seven when my mum took me to a class in England to help channel my boisterous nature and to develop self-control and confidence. Little did I know that over forty eight years later I would be writing my martial arts bio for a website in New Zealand.
I believe as individuals we should continuously develop, lifelong learning if you like. I have always felt that this is an important tenet to ensure as individuals we try to get as much out of ourselves as possible.
In my twenties I did a degree in education from a university in England. In My thirties I obtained a Masters honours degree in education from a New Zealand university. In my forties I completed a PhD in education from an Australian university. These international degrees were undertaken part time whilst being married and raising a family of four children. I spent twenty years working at a university in New Zealand teaching others how to teach.
Some might say I am an expert in both education and martial arts, so what have I learnt?
I believe that the practice of traditional martial arts offer one of the few ways in a modern world to develop the whole person; mind, body and spirit. Martial arts encourage the individual a chance to develop through physical and mental challenges.
If you believe, that you or your children would benefit from traditional martial arts training, I commend to you The Kung Fu School New Zealand.
