It was a great class. I learned a lot and feel more confident!

A diverse assortment of kids from The Berkeley School (formerly, Berkeley Montessori) came to visit the Headquarters in Berkeley yesterday. I’ve given the WingChun download, so to speak, to a lot of different people and groups. It’s never the same. But I especially enjoyed educating this bright, engaged audience. Good questions, great energy!
I thought I wasn’t going to like this class, but I really enjoyed it! Thanks!

One of them had just been mugged the day before. I’m glad she escaped safely, though without her iPod. However, this incident woke them up to the reality and relevance of Self-Defense. They were motivated to more confidently confront such unpredictable situations. I made sure not to disappoint.
Really informative and a lot of good techniques and stuff.

We only had an hour! But I am happy how much I’ve learned to transmit, even in such short sessions. Those who have studied with me know I love using analogies as shortcuts between relative ignorance and general understanding, which can then be further refined. One comparison I often use is swimming and Self-Defense. Both are survival skills and fun to practice!
I had a lot of fun in the class, and I learned that there are a ton of ways to defend yourself.

I also say you must activate a feeling before your movement. And a good way to do so is imagining you are being cheered on to win a championship game by raging fans who love you. This revs you up, ready to rumble! Check out the picture to see what I mean. Can you tell they were really into it:
Awesome! Learned a lot and I feel more prepared.

I’m always grateful for the opportunity to pass on what I know. It’s satisfying to connect with individuals of all ages and backgrounds through this work. The logic and spirit of WingChun seems to inspire everyone. Until next time, train well!
It was really fun and I feel like I can really defend myself now.
