It's been a busy year since CNY and the HK Masters visit. Here's a recap of the year so far.
The HK Masters visit was a great success, with many performances and training workshops held over a 10 day period. We performed at two Westfield shopping centres, grand openings, council events and even a university campus. In typical HK style training, the students were put through their paces in stances and footwork to ensure a strong foundation. It was a really memorable experience to have our overseas guests here to perform with us.
Our student Tony competed at the ISKA NSW Open at Whitlam Centre in Liverpool. He took out 1st place in Continuous Sparring 14-15yr old novices. This was a double for Tony, who had competed and won 1st place in the same division at the CCP tournament back in October 2013.
We celebrated our official 3rd year anniversary on 2nd April 2014! Dragon Style Kung Fu has actually been in Sydney since 1988 (to 2003). After a 8yr hiatus due to Master Chan Cheung's retirement and passing, we restarted the club in 2011. Since then we've had many new students, as well as former students come back to train with us. Thank you for the loyalty and continued support in rebuilding the club!
April also saw our youth team perform at Australia's largest youth festival 'Bring it On!', at Fairfield Showground. Not only did we have performers, but also 3 of our students were volunteers at the festival.
Well done to our teenage boys, and also our very first female lion head performer! 13yr old Kim did a great job performing in front of the crowd, who were really impressed with the show the teens put on.
It's only 2mths since our last tournament, but our students will be making an appearance at AMAC at the NSW Netball Centre on 4th May 2014. Best of luck to our student David, who will be competing in the freestyle and full contact Karate divisions! Not only will David be competing at AMAC, but 3wks later he will also be competing at ISKA Sydney Open, repping Dragon Style in the MMA Combat Grappling division!
