    Hi All

    A quick summary of what I am looking for and plan to do:

    I am looking for a group of people/students who are interested in learning Pak Hok Pai in the Sydney area.

    I will be training at a local park by myself whether or not there is anyone to take up this offer.

    I will be showing the students White Crane Kung Fu (Pak Hok Pai) as taught to me by Sifu Cheung Kwok Wah. Parts of it will be different/adjusted for a class environment, as I am usually taught on a one to one basis.

    I will describe briefly what classes will consist of for the initial 3-6 months. Assuming you have no background in Pak Hok Pai or any of the related Hop Gar Kuen or Lama Pai I will be teaching:

    1. Gei Boon Kuen (Basic fists)
    2. Gei Boon Bo Faht (Basic footwork)
    3. Technique drills/forms

    Any forms I teach you I intend to break them down into individual techniques that you will drill each class. Depending on the outcome of some legal enquiries I will be making soon, I expect (for those who want to) that you will be engaging in varying levels of sparring (varying levels for safety reasons) after each class using the techniques you have learnt.

    Cost? I will be charging you a grand total of $0 per class. I will however, expect you to buy your own equipment which you will need to train and spar with. E.g. mouth guards (you are not borrowing mine!), head gear, gloves, skipping rope, etc...

    Why? I am not interested in making money out of this. I have a main occupation that pays me enough. I am only interested in getting a group of people together who are in the most part, honest and with low egos, to share my passion for Pak Hok Pai, to train together, improve our skills and ensure that the Pak Hok Kung Fu I learn from Cheung Sifu can be passed onto others in Australia.

    To make this clear -

    a) I am Cheung Sifu's student and authorised instructor in Australia so please don't call me sifu see (e) below;
    b) I am not made of steel or titanium, I've been injured before so lets train hard but smart;
    c) I expect us to be respectful to each other;
    d) yes - I am going to be training with you;
    e) yes - I am still learning and I will teach you whatever I learn from Cheung Sifu subject to your learning curve, effort, etc;
    f) actually there is more to say... so let me know if you have any questions or are interested in learning Pak Hok Pai by sending me an email:

    pakhokpai@hotmail.com

    When I settle on a date I will start to be available for classes I will let those of you who have emailed me know where I am and the time. Come have a look, try training together. I am sure it won't take us very long to figure out whether this is what you are looking for or not.

    Cheers

    seeing as most founders of crane-based arts apparently learned their system by either directly observing or dreaming about a crane fighting some sort of belligerent vertebrate (snake / ape / vole / Thompson's gazelle), I'd say that either a trip to the local aviary w/a badger in your backpack or some serious inhalants prior to bedtime would be all that you need...

    I fly to Hong Kong every year to train.

    I have already booked in some cheap airfares to fly over for Christmas this year and stay the month of January.

    Looking forward to it as usual...

    I really miss the cheap 10HKD meals.
