Outdoor Classes and Pre-Opening Survey

We are planning to host outdoor classes on 6/20 Saturday at 11 am-12:30 pm at Strawberry Creek Park, as the city of Berkeley Health Officer plans to release the guideline allowing the outdoor fitness classes next Friday. During the class, we will be focusing on the solo WingChun practice drills and forms, main distance awareness. We also include Escrima practice with longer weapons, such as rattan sticks and long swords with both solo and partner drills, while respecting the physical distancing. You can bring your own sticks or practice blades, if you have one(s) at home, or I will bring the extra rattan sticks, which I frame-hardened cheerfully this afternoon.

We would like to know how many of you are interested in joining the Saturday class. If you are, would you book your spot online through Zen Planner? or shoot me a message through info@iawberkeley.com? We will maintain our Zoom classes available as things moves forward, so you can still join our classes from afar.

Ahead of the re-opening of WingChun Berkeley studio, we would like to know about your opinions and preferences about the classes. They are critical for us to design the optimum re-opening schedule and training plans for each of you. It will take approximately 5 minutes to fully complete, there are 8 questions.  You may stay anonymous or you can leave your name at the comment. Please find the link below.

You will receive the separate message for further schedules with exact location and timing of the classes, once it is confirmed.

Again, I sincerely appreciate many of you who are reaching out to me for supports, offering helps, participating in the lessons at Zoom class, past few weeks during this challenging time. It’s exciting for me to meet all of you in person and training together again. Hopefully soon!
