All newcomers are
welcome to attend a compulsory 16 lesson introductory course, during which time
they are taught the basics. There is no uniform or formal training clothing
required; training or jogging trousers, a plain t-shirt/sweatshirt and training
shoes (and a desire to learn) are all that is needed.
introductory period, beginners are taught the basics, whilst having the
opportunity to take part in 16 typical lessons, ask questions about all and any
aspects of the Wing Chun system, the Sifu (teacher), the classes etc. At the
end of the introductory course, newcomers can decide whether they wish to apply
to join the B.W.C.K.
However, during that
same 16 lesson introductory period, the newcomer is the subject of a
psychological and physical assessment by the Sifu (teacher), who will listen to
the questions asked, review their attendances and punctuality, note the
beginner's respect (or lack of it) and assess their attitude and suitability.
At the end of the introductory course the Sifu will decide whether to invite
and accept the applicant as a member, student and ambassador to the school.
"We teach by selection and invitation only, we offer authentic
Wing Chun taught in the traditional manner. We set and expect the highest
standards, teaching only respectful, disciplined and dedicated martial artists,
who train hard with the correct mental attitude"
Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe - Chief Instructor MWCK
