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.
Welcome to the Kung Fu School teaching martial arts. We are an experienced school that is based in Roxburgh Street Petone and we service Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Johnsonville, Khandallah, Alicetown and Eastbourne.
The Petone Kung Fu school is focused on a quality martial arts education for you and your children.
If you are looking to learn a traditional martial art and join a family of people from many different walks of life, then we recommend that you come along and try a free class.
Classes focus on the traditional art and include stretching, weapons training, Kung Fu animal styles, discipline, fitness, strength training and more. Every class will be challenging, rewarding and lots of fun.
We have many locations around New Zealand so if you’re traveling you can even train with your extended family.
At the Petone school, we encourage everyone – especially if you have no experience at all or have done a martial art before – to give it a go! You never know it might be that one thing that is currently missing in your life.
The Kung Fu School is a family orientated martial art with a focus on support of our students learning and providing a challenging and ability appropriate training ethic.
The best way to find out if this is something for you is to come down and have a chat with one of our seniors and experience it for yourself. We are always willing to assist you in any way we can.
Please feel free to email or call with any questions and we look forward to seeing you in a class soon.
Hi thanks for taking the time to read and enquire about joining The Kung Fu School Petone (Lower Hutt). I am Scott, the Instructor (Gow Lian) for the Petone School. I encourage you to come along as you will have fun and take something useful home.
I started Kung Fu at the beginning of 2010, training under Sifu Rob Young at our Wellington (Brooklyn) Kwoon. I am still training there every Monday and Saturdays. I also try to train as much as I can in Palmerston North under our Head instructor Sifu O’Sullivan.
You will learn a wide range of techniques, such as kicking, punching, take downs, self defence, weapons, animal tehniques and much much more. It is also great for fitness and I don’t think I have ever been as fit as I am now.
Kung fu has become a huge part of my life and one of the best parts is all the people you meet and train with. We notice that all our students come from a completely different walk of life.
At the end of 2013, I had the privilege to sit the exam for my first degree black belt. I have to be honest, it is one of the hardest tests mentally and physically I have done to date. The strange thing is, I can’t explain the rewarding feeling after it and especially when the black belt was tied around my waist. Recently in December 2017, I have sat and passed my 2nd degree black belt.
So I encourage you, come along and give it a go. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you may have. I will be more than happy to answer any questions.
