Why Train Online?

- Positively and safely engage and interact with peers and instructors.
- Consistently develop mindfulness.
- Receive positive and motivational messages.
Please follow all the health and safety guidelines we advise for a live class:
- Training Space: We assume that your workout space is limited; a 2 x 2 metre square will suffice.
- Clear Obstacles: Please ensure that you or your child’s training space is safe and clear of any hazards, including pets and other family members.
- Set Your Pace: Train at a pace that makes sense for your state of health and fitness. If you are new to kung-fu, please go gradually and listen to your body. Kung-fu provides tremendous benefits, both physical and mental, but it is important to move patiently and progressively.
- Take Needed Breaks: If you are feeling unwell, take a break.
- Medical Issues: If you have underlying medical issues, please be mindful. (For instance, if you have asthma, keep an inhaler nearby.)
Uniforms & Equipment
- Please do wear the same uniform required for in-person training. (A uniform is not required during your trial period.)
- We continue to offer kung-fu uniforms and equipment from our kung-fu equipment store via curbside delivery. To arrange your order and pickup, please contact us.

Best Practices for Online Kung-Fu Classes
- Username: To help us to record attendance and give you a more personal experience, please ensure that the username of the student taking the class is correct. For families who share an account/hardware, please update the name at the start of each class.
- Camera Angle: Stances are fundamental to our curriculum, so your instructor will prefer to see you from head to toe. Please attempt to set up your camera so that we can see all of you.
- Lighting: Good lighting helps us to see you clearly. Light from the front or above works better than backlighting.
- Muting & Unmuting: We encourage you to interact with us; please ensure you know how to unmute easily.
- Video-Sharing: Although it is not necessary to take the class, we strongly encourage you to share your video for the most interactive experience.
We have class times to fit even the busiest schedule.
