New Year’s Message from Sifu

Thursday, January 11th, 2007
Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for your support and hard work; our martial arts group enjoyed a very successful year in 2006. Last year, we participated in 16 events where we showcased both our lion dance and martial arts skills. Highlights included our first-time martial arts demonstration at the annual Kin Fung celebration, performance for Channel M’s promotional-marketing video production and the lion dance opening ceremony to kick off the CBA 100th anniversary banquet. To maintain momentum, our students must train hard by continuing to polish their current sets and challenge themselves with new (more difficult) routines. In 2007, we will be re-aligning our Sunday classes to incorporate a more vigorous training program for our novice-intermediate members. We will also be expanding our training curriculum to include a new martial arts class at Lee’s Athletic Association.Our upcoming events are as follows: January 19 - Lion Dance and martial arts demonstration at Kwantlen University College 25th Anniversary Block Party February 18 - Lion Dance at the annual Vancouver Chinese New Year Parade April 14 - Lion Dance and martial arts demonstration at Hoy Ping’s annual Spring Festival Celebration Keep up the good work! We look forward to another great year in 2007.
