As I mentioned in my last post I was looking for an activity to focus on for health reasons. Martial Arts provide an excellent focus for this.
The martial arts I am interested in are
- BJJ (Brazilian jiujitsu) Gracie Jiujitsu
- Wing Chun
I have done Hapkido before but now lack the passion for it, BJJ is ruled out too because of injuries. That leaves Wing Chun.
The Wing Chun schools in Melbourne that I know
Former instructors now running their own schools:
- Sifu Danna Wong – http://www.qianlidao.com/
- Sifu Julian de Boers – http://www.wingchunbingfakungfu.com.au
- Sifu Joe Sayah – http://www.wingchununiverse.com
Sifu Danna Wong is a wonderful teacher.
I don’t know Sifu Joe Savah, but there is a lot about him on the internet
Sifu Julian de Boers and his wife run a nice school in the centre of Melbourne. Haven’t attended a class yet, but they were very friendly and he was a chief instructor under William Cheung before branching out on his own.
Wong Shun Leung way of Wing Chun Chinese Boxing
Tn the Wong Shun Leung way of Wing Chun Chinese Boxing or WSL Wing Chun for short is based on Wing Chun as taught by Sifu Wong Shun Leung.
The main instructors in Melbourne that are close to me are David Peterson (City) and Sifu Enzo Verratt (Brunswick)
Enzo’s school is only $85 per month! Bargain. David’s classes are about $110 per month
Off course cost alone is not the dominate factor in choosing a school.
There are probably other schools of course and no doubt I have missed out on good schools close to me, but I shall be trying out classes with Julian de Boers, Enzo Verratt and David Peterson to see what suits me.
