Fu For You – Sigung’s Corner
In virtually every class we teach, we encourage students of all age programs to practice. For our younger students, in class I sometimes get them to say the mantra: “practice is repeating”. As martial artists, we are called to relish in the journey and not be too hasty in reaching a destination. Practice is the way.
Honouring the value of “patience,” inspired by the first line of our Student Creed: I must know how to advance slowly, to learn progressively and not carelessly.
Giving renewed attention to the humble but potent tradition of greeting one another with respect.
This Fall was a jubilant return to our traditions! We have persevered through adversities and experienced the joy that comes from hard work.
“I resolve to abide by and to perpetuate the philosophy of Kung Fu.”

This November, after exactly 34 years, to get more floor space, an old wooden wardrobe style cabinet was removed from the kwoon. This cabinet’s time at the Academy pre-dates even Sibok Lloyd and Sibok Eric’s time. Enjoy our trip down memory lane through the eyes of an armoire.
I feel ever grateful for the dependable mentors in my martial arts journey and the consistent dependability of our instructor team—a true source of hope for the future of the Academy and the art!
If you’re feeling in a bit of a funk, I implore you to turn off your TV and tune in to Mother Nature.
Being accountable to one another helps us stay committed to our goals.
A heartfelt thank you to my instructors, both those leaving us and those joining our ranks.
Looking back at just some of the involvement and impact Sifu Patti has had during her almost two decades with us.
Through this lockdown, I have experienced that having a routine that includes Kung Fu is more important in my life than ever; I am beyond grateful to our community, which keeps me committed to mine as we stay committed to one another.
