Training and Classes

Member Input for Extracurricular Training

When we discussed and envisioned the Wing Tsun Academy we wanted to create a training facility that offered much more than the system of Wing Tsun. We pictured a school where members goals, needs and interests were supported by a selection of classes that could be chosen and complete training programmes could be designed by each individual.

We will offer everything related to martial arts from meditation to firearms. As a member you can influence which classes we will develop first.

Members can to vote three times. Votes can be for the same class or spread over multiple classes. We will work on developing the training and classes with the most votes first.

This poll will run until {{Date}}
