Can I just turn up to a class?

 

Of course! Beginners are always welcome. Feel free to come and try one of our group classes, which run on Wednesday evenings at 20:00. Your first session is free, which will give you a chance to meet others, ask questions and see if you like the style. We are confident that you will find everyone to be friendly and knowledgeable and the classes to be a great learning environment.

Feel free to drop-in. There is no need to book it in advance.

What should I normally wear?

 

Wear comfortable training clothes, allowing free movement: loose comfortable trousers or shorts, a T-shirt and flat comfortable shoes or trainers.

Just bring your energy, a good dose of curiosity and a bottle of water to hydrate at half-time and at the end of every session.

How can I contact you or get more details?

 

If after reading this section you still need to contact us for any reason, you can check our Facebook page, our MoveGB page or get in touch with Sifu Jim at your convenience on 07542-065733.

Do I need to be fit or flexible?

 

There is a range of fitness levels and abilities in our classes. You will naturally move forward at your own pace. You don't really need to be neither fit nor flexible to start learning Hung Ga, but you will actually get fit and flexible if you commit to a regular training schedule. When we exercise, we naturally become more flexible. Stretches are also part of our class but we do not focus on flexibility. FYI, our system doesn't use high kicks.

Is it too late for me? Am I too old? 

 

No! It is never too late to start. It may be too late to become the next Wong Fei Hung, but you will always benefit from our training. Just turn up to a class and see for yourself. Remember, you first session is free!
