A Plum Blossom Opens: Private Group Classes

Students, Friends, and Readers,

This is Sifu Ethan Caudy with a long awaited update from Forest Wing Chun. We've all been through a lot in the past few years, and our school was no exception. We made the difficult decision to close our doors to new students in March of 2020, and have been operating privately online since then. I'd like to extend my personal gratitude, and that of Forest Wing Chun as a whole, to the members who demonstrated immense patience dealing with our sudden transition to online teaching - and all the bumps and mishaps that it brought. Without all of you and your fierce dedication to our school and art, we surely would have fallen into ruin. We will forever be grateful for your choice every day to walk the path of Wing Chun with us, and the amazing progress you've made despite everything.

A School Reimagined:

Forest Wing Chun has learned so much from the challenges our school has faced over the past few years, and our dedication to delivering the highest quality martial arts training remains unwavering. Rather than simply biding our time, we took the opportunity to evaluate and enhance every aspect of our school. From the ground up, we rebuilt and refined our training program - ensuring it aligns with the evolving needs and aspirations of our students. We also revamped our members-only website, enriching it with new videos, educational content, and resources, providing our students with a comprehensive digital experience to compliment their physical training. There has truly never been a better time to become part of our kung fu family.

Classes Re-open Privately:

While Forest Wing Chun is not yet ready to fully re-open to the public, we believe it is time to extend the benefits of training to new students. In pursuit of this, we have resumed private in-person group classes by invitation only. This approach allows us to provide a personalized training experience to individuals who have demonstrated a genuine interest in our school. The classes will serve as an exclusive opportunity to embark on the Wing Chun journey in a focused and supportive environment, until such a time as we fully re-open to the public.

How to Receive an Invitation:

If you find yourself intrigued by Wing Chun and the potential for joining our esteemed community, we encourage you to take the initiative. Let us know why Wing Chun sounds like the art for you. If you express sincere interest I will arrange to meet with you privately. At our initial meeting we can discuss your unique goals and expectations, and explore how our school can help you achieve them. Afterward I will begin your training personally with two free individual lessons. If you show potential as a student during this trial period I will invite you to join our private in-person group classes and fully experience what Forest Wing Chun has to offer.

Our Commitment to You:

At Forest Wing Chun, we are dedicated to providing exceptional training experiences that empower our students both mentally and physically. Our new and improved curriculum awaits, and I personally look forward to the opportunity to guide you on your Wing Chun journey. Don't hesitate to reach out to us and express your interest in joining our martial arts family. Mindfulness, self-mastery, and self-defense are all within your reach. Take the first step and embrace the transformative power of Wing Chun Kung Fu!
