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 Karori Kung Fu club opened in February 2014 by Elliot Gonzales, located at 7 Beauchamp Street in the Karori Community centre.
Running Tuesdays and Fridays, we provide classes for children and adults. The school caters to students of all ages and abilities of the Western Suburbs of Wellington (Thorndon, Aro Valley, Kelburn, Northland, and Karori).
Come join our club for an enlightening and energizing experience as you learn our martial art. Improve your functional fitness, strength, flexibility, agility, movement, well being, self-confidence, and mindfulness.
Leave your troubles at the door, and train to your hearts content.
I began training at Palmerston North at the age of 11 at June 2005, directly under Sifu O’Sullivan of the Nam Pai Chuan Head Quarters. From this day on, Martial Arts has been a tremendous factor in my personal, physical, and mental development throughout my life.
Its benefits are both tangible and intangible, and its improvement on my quality of life are insurmountable. Know your body, build your mind, improve yourself, and empower others; Nam Pai Chuan enables one to bolster our human condition through the Martial Arts.
After moving to Wellington for University, I currently train under Sifu Rob Young at the Brooklyn district of Wellington, and also run a club in the Wellington Suburb of Karori. I currently hold a 2nd Degree Black Belt as of December 2016.
