Lunar New Year party

LunarNewYear2016_01LunarNewYear2016_04LunarNewYear2016_03LunarNewYear2016_02

It has become a tradition at CWTA to celebrate Chinese New Year with a gathering and feast on a roast pig as well many other good food. We want to let all our students young and old alike to understand the traditional Chinese culture and learn about the greetings and respect we give to the older generation. I hope that these customs can be passed down to the many generations to come.

This year is the year of the Monkey and our gym was packed with so much people we barely had room to move! I hope all our students and their family can continue to join us in this celebration every year!

Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone good heath and good fortune in the year of the Monkey.

Annual BBQ Year 2014

 

Another good turn out this year for our annual CWTA BBQ. It’s always good to see everyone outside the gym and be able to mingle and talk about things that are not always about WT.
Although we were threaten by the possibility of rain, and there were a couple of drops here and there, I hope everyone had a great time. At least we weren’t baking in the sun!

Second Level Technician Exam

We are very grateful to announce there are four new 2nd level technician after a very tough test on 30th May, 2014. They all well deserved this promotion after having witnessed the hard work they have put in over the years. We are especially very happy that they were able to perform many different Wing Tsun skillful techniques and movements in sparring sessions of the test, and not only chain punching. This was a intense exam that contains few elements like form, random punch, sparring with wing tusn then outsider, and 3 verse 1 sparring. I hope their success can motivate them to train harder towards achieving their next goal. Congratulations again!

Hong Kong Trip

SIFU Cheng Chuen Fun

Sifu Cheng Chuen Fun

It’s been a while since I’ve been back to Hong Kong, and it was really great to be able to visit my family and my Wing Tsun brothers on my recent trip back. Especially, I was very excited to see my Sifu (Sifu Cheng Cheun Fun) again. Sifu is still very energetic and talkative, and I cherish every conversation I have with him. The advice he has given me is integral to what I have become and achieved, and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am also very happy to be able to meet up with a lot of my Wing Tsun brothers, many of them are currently Wing Tsun Sifu in Hong Kong (some are quite famous). We reminisced about the “good o’ days”, and we also exchanged many ideas about Wing Tsun. Please enjoy the photos I have shared, and I have also added the names of all the Sifu you see.

Happy 7th Birthday to CWTA

CWTA7thAnniversary CWTA7thAnniversary

Time flies!  It has been seven years since Sifu Lau opened his Wing Tsun Kung Ku gym in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Happy Birthday!!!!

To celebrate this great occasion, we gathered together for a big traditional Chinese dinner on Saturday March 29th.  Almost a hundred attendees enjoyed a fun night.  There were Sifus from other branches, students, and many good friends that came together to celebrate this joyful event.

During the dinner, there was a special moment which Sifu Lau presented plaques to those Wing Tsun Kung Fu lovers.  All the recipients have been practicing and contributing to Wing Tsun for at least 15 years.

Of course, there were game sections lead by our great MC Victoria and Alex.  They were very well prepared and organized for the whole program.  Everyone enjoyed that night very much.

Again! We wish Carson Wing Tsun Academy all the best and have many successfully years to come.
