  • 10.7.23 CLASS CHANGES... dates and locations

    Open or Close
    Looking forward to a new class time starting in August. We first started classes in the Community Halls in the mid 90s if memory serves correctly, and I am sad to be leaving. It is time for change however, and Saturday morning classes will be new.

    The last class in the Central Halls will be Thursday 3rd August, and the first Saturday is 12th August, 10am.

    This means that from 3rd August onward, both Tuesday evening classes and Saturday morning classes will be in Shakespeare St, where we have been active since around 1984.

    Look forward to seeing class members, and hope if this new time suites you as a beginner, you will come along.

  • 8.11.22 - Sunday workshop

    Open or Close
    After a gap of around 2 years following lockdown and a depletion of class members, we held our first all day seminar for a while on Sunday. In addition to doing hand and weapons forms, we concentrated on a couple of aspects which we don't often have time for in normal class, mainly an introduction to Chan Si (reeling silk), Cai Lang, Zhou Lu and Fu Yang (and seven stars for the newest members). We will develop these in class in coming weeks. We also had a light sparring session, a good reality check. So all in all a good day with some take aways for everyone I hope. Thanks to all who attended.

    I had almost forgotten about this gallery, set up probably 10 years ago or more on a google site, and linked to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

    Takes a bit of navigating, but have a look
