Exciting Change for Tiverton Class

Exciting Change for Tiverton Class
We’re delighted to announce that Miles Carrigan will be teaching the Tiverton class from now on.  The class remains part of the Devon Wing Chun club, so your standing orders are still valid for this class and all other classes.
Mondays 7.30pm-9.00pm will offer an exciting opportunity to train with Miles who, as you know, is a dedicated student of Wing Chun and Tai Chi.  He has always trained hard and regularly and taken as many opportunities as possible to train with visiting Masters (Samuel Kwok, Bill McKay and Carlos Lewis in particular).  He has a very enquiring mind and continues to research Kung Fu and explore his chosen arts.
We wish him every success with this class and look forward to sharing in his continued Kung Fu journey.

Gaining Skill…

Gaining Skill is the opposite of Gaining Fat; Fat is easy to gain and hard to lose; Skill is hard to acquire and easy to lose!

So, keep training hard!

Wing Chun & Preying Mantis Seminar

Fantastic seminar sharing the knowledge of Wing Chun & Preying Mantis Kung Fu systems.  Both Sifu Tom Collingridge (Devon Wing Chun) and Sifu Robert Byrnes (ITSWA) led excellent workshops in their respective styles, focusing on principals rather than stylised movements.  All students attended in a co-operative, open and friendly manner and a great time was had by all.  Other than a few injuries (bruised forearms, a broken tooth and split eye brow), the day passed without incident.  Hopefully an event to be repeated in the not too distant future.
