training day York.

The last training day of the year was very well attended. A lot of indepth training went on, so much so that i cant beleive how fast the day went! I can tell from the feedback from many students that this was the case for them too. It was enjoyed by all who attended. This training day is held in October and is the second of two that we do during the year. More photo's in the gallery.

Training Camp 2009

Our annual training camp was, as always a great success. Even though this year, for the first time, the weather was wet and windy. This didnt dampen the training spirit though and the sun actually came out for the b.b.q so it wasnt all bad. Thanks to all who braved the weather with me. The annual training camp is held every summer over 3 days (fri - sun) at a small campsite in North Yorks. Most students come for the whole camp and pitch a tent, but some just come up for a day or two and travel home again at the end of the day. It really is an enjoyable weekend, where students from all the classes get together for some formal and informal training, followed by a relaxing b.b.q and a drink and a chat in the village pub! Have a look at the gallery for this years photo's.

Training event at Nostell

The recent training event at Nostell went great. The weather was warm and dry,(for a change!) and luckily we had a gazebo over us, to keep out most of the hot sun! It was good to see students from different classes getting some excellent partner training done. Everyone commented on how much they learnt and enjoyed the day. A huge thank you to fellow York student Mark Alston for allowing us to use this unique setting again, and thank you to John at Nostell for providing us with the much needed half time refreshments.(burgers and cold beer!) The next event is the legendary Training Camp! Definately one NOT to be missed! running over the weekend of Fri 31st July to Sun 2nd Aug (inclusive) Nr Boro'bridge, North Yorks' Camp under canvas, sleep under the stars, or commute up daily...which ever suits you. It's a truly fabulous weekend where you can train as much or as little as you like. Sit and listen with an ice cold drink or go for a walk. whatever pleases you. There will be arranged training times throughout the weekend with plenty of 'ad lib' going on too. It's open to all members and you are more than welcome to bring partners and family if you wish. There will be an evening B.B.Q on Saturday. This event is always well attended and therefore it will be on a first come first served basis for tent pitches. If you haven't joined us yet then please check out the gallery for some photo's of past camps, and pop along to one of our classes and have a chat.

June 2009

Well we are half way through 2009 and so far its been a very good training year. I know that the present economic climate has had a huge impact on a lot of you and your family, with many of you facing redundancy, and because this means that cash flow is hit hard it's usually the leisure persuits that go first. But remember, our Wing chun is just as much about the mental training as it is about the physical, and when it seems like nothings going right for you it's good therapy to get away from it all and de-stress with a group of like minded people doing exactly the same thing!(and i'm sure there's many a spouse/partner that would apprieciate you going too!) If you havn't taken up the art yet, well there's never been a better time. Check out the classes and come along and see what we do. We're a friendly lot, and always welcome new students. The next event is our training afternoon at Nostell Priory Park, in a beautiful wooded glade with a hard training surface (so we wont be 'chewing up' any grass!) I hope to see many of you there.
