The Mullumbimby Wu Chi Kung Fu School ran a special class last Sunday morning down at Torakina Park, Brunswick Heads.

The event was non-competitive, says school owner Gavin Cook. ‘In Kung Fu the competition is mastering yourself’, he said.

Gavin says it was a perfect morning in Bruns with more than 25 adult, teens and kids attending the session and many took the opportunity to go to the beach afterwards. ‘The morning started at 7.30 with an adults and teens class for two hours and then a kids class for one hour’, said Gav. ‘A lot of the adults stayed around and helped with the kids class and played games with them too. It was a great morning of Kung Fu training and fun was had by all.’

Gavin says that the training was facilitated by two black belts and an instructor from Lismore. Participants trained Kung Fu partner drills, short stick weapons, self-defence and games, and three-legged races for the kids, followed by a lunch with everyone bringing food to share.

For the adults, the event was the first class of the Intensive Kung Fu training Week’,where they are training every day, Sunday to Friday, for 1.5 to 2 hours per day.
