I sincerely wish all is well with you. I am very pleased to announce you that we are reopening in-studio class starting from October 10th, Saturday at 11:30am -12pm at the Berkeley location. It’s been almost 7 months since the first shelter-in-place order was placed. First, it’s supposed to be only for 3 weeks, then indefinitely for such a long time.
On the top of the Covid-19 outbreak, ongoing wildfires, and heavy smoke covered up the Bay Area, most of you have probably had a difficulty getting consistent exercise and healthy workout outside. You might even find yourself with less energy to keep focused, motivated, or excited in everyday life.
If you are facing the challenging time, there’s comfort in knowing that everything is temporary. Emotions, thoughts, people and scenery. Do not become attached. just flow with it. Everything is bound to end.
Remember that; Everything heals. Your heart heals. The mind heals. Wounds heal. Your happiness is always going to come back. Bad times don’t last.
On the other hand, if you love something, love it completely, cherish it, appreciate it, say it, but most importantly, show it to whom you care and to whom you love. Life is finite and fragile. Never take that for granted. Everything is bound to end.
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
WingChun Training Options
We are resuming in-person class from 10/10 Saturday at 11am-12:30pm. And going back to the regular schedule following weeks Tuesday & Thursday at 7:30-9pm. We would like to limit the attendance of the classes small and provide you more detail focused instructions on the techniques.
If you feel more comfortable with private 1-on-1 for the time being, or have challenges to adjust the schedule for the classes, we can arrange the private lessons with you.
In addition, those who have been in active membership anytime from April through September 2020, although haven’t had a chance to take advantage of it, we are planning to compensate you as roll-over-tuition credits or non-expiring private lesson credits. I will discuss the options with each of you, in separate communications.
In order to schedule the private lesson, you can initiate the process through the link below, or send me message through firstname.lastname@example.org.
The studio has been kept extremely clean with our mopping robots and a new air purifier. More training equipment has been installed. AQI monitor in studio, showed 12, when smoke hit hard on the Bay Area again, outside is over 160!
Additionally, we will be continuously streaming the WingChun Zoom Classes at the same schedule along with the regular classes (per request). If you are still not comfortable with in-person training or temporarily relocated to far from the studio, and yet wishing to participate in the training, please let us know.
I sincerely appreciate many of you who are reaching out to me for supports, offering helps, participating in the lessons at Zoom classes, past few months.
As a practitioner, isolation is the time when we thrive. Take this opportunity, to transform from who you are to who you can be. Transformation is an essential process as life happens.
Stay healthy and tough up inside and outside.
Tough time can also be a moment of growth.
Are you ready?
With Love and Respect,
Sije Yuka Yoshioka
