Vancouver video, Kung Fu at the beach, Hall of Fame
Wing Tsun Kung Fu Vancouver was founded in 1994 as the first Canadian Wing Tsun branch. We had the pleasure to greet in our school over the past years many friendly, open-minded WT "tourists" from Germany, Italy, Denmark, England, Bulgaria, Switzerland and other countries. Been here? Miss Vancouver? Find a great videoclip at the web site of the City of Vancouver. Or check out some of the local web cams.
I know it's currently raining without an end in sight, but nevertheless Spring is here. Soon we'll be holding our annual Free Open Air Class at Kitsilano Beach.
New season, new shirts. For T-shirts, long sleeve T-shirts, Sweatshirts, hooded Sweatshirts and more check out our online store at http://www.wingtsunkungfuwear.com/ (www.cafepress.com/wingtsunkungfu). Choose from a variety of Wing Tsun Kung Fu apparel.
In the early 90's I started to teach a class of students in a previous heavily guarded sports center in former East Berlin. Some participants seemed somewhat familiar, until I found out that several of the new students had belonged to the former Olympic Gymnastic team of the GDR. Among them Maxi Gnauck, Gold medalist Olympic Games 1980, 3 times Worldcup champion, 5 times World champion, 4 times European champion. She was introduced into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 2000.
It's never too late to start your training!

Wing Tsun Kung Fu Seminar Weekend on Vancouver Island
Part 1 - Saturday, March 31st 2007, 2-6pm in Langford
Part 2 - Sunday, April 1st 2007, 9am-1pm in Victoria

The two-day weekend seminar will run under the topic "The Complete Core Concepts of Wing Tsun Kung Fu.” Realize the blueprint behind the first four Wing Tsun forms. Why are the forms in the order they have been passed down through the generations? It's a great opportunity to learn to think differently about the continuous learning process in Wing Tsun. Find all the information on our special web site at: http://realisticselfdefense.tripod.com/wingtsunkungfu_weekend.html
