I have an exciting announcement to make regarding our school. On Sunday, October 20th, we will be celebrating the grand opening of our new location at 814 Village Highway in Rustburg. Our new studio is nearly twice the size of the East West Center, and will have more training equipment for students including: the Wooden Dummy, Wall Bags, and a padded floor for safer high-intensity training.
We will also be sharing the space with Grand Slam Martial Arts, owned and run by a personal friend of mine, Sensei Jeff Doss. Grand Slam offers programs for children and adults in Shotokan Karate, tournament training, and many other disciplines. The grand opening will run from 2pm to 5pm, and feature local vendors as well as demonstrations by Forest Wing Chun and Grand Slam Martial Arts.
It has been almost two years since we formally opened at the East West Center on Old Forest Road, and it has been quite a journey to reach where we are now. I am profoundly grateful to all present and past students of Forest Wing Chun for the opportunity you've all given me; not just to pass on my art, but to know you and become a part of all of your lives. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Grand Opening, and seeing you all grow with us as Forest Wing Chun continues to evolve.
