March was a super month for Wing Tsun despite having a week off for spring break. I traveled to Dublin Ireland for vacation. While there, I was able to drop in on Master Aiden Canavan’s Wing Tsun class. The class session was 2 hours long, and we worked on form training, padded drills, form application and chi sau. It was interesting to see how others branches do things a little different, there were some elements that I felt a little awkward with at first, but Sifu Canavan and his friendly students helped me to get my confidence. I learned some interesting applications and footwork. Thank you all at Wing Tsun Dublin for the hospitality!
Master Canavan is a 5th level master grade instructor in the Irish European Wing Tsun Organization (IEWTO). The European Wing Tsun Organization was founded by Grand Master Keith Kenrnspect, a student of Grand Master Leung Ting.
March ended with our Seminar with Master Mike Adams, of Dynamic Martial Arts in Illinois. We did a 4 hour seminar on Saturday, March 25 with students both the Gilbert and Scottsdale location in attendance. The special event was held at the Scottsdale Martial Arts Center and we got a chance to learn Wing Tsun from a new perspective. I learned some new material and I know that attendees enjoyed themselves too.
In addition to the seminar, I was able to do a couple private lessons focusing on Wooden Dummy, and Biu Tze Chi Sau sections. Thank you Master Adams for visiting us!
