Early Morning Training

Announcing Early Morning Classes …

We are adding two early morning classes per week to the schedule, Monday and Wednesday as a one month trial run. The time will be 6:00 am – 7:00 am starting Monday July 9, 2018. The idea is to accommodate those who have full schedules in the evening hours and cannot normally attend our evening classes. In addition, morning is a great time to have a practice or a workout according to experts in the field of physical fitness. The class is being offered initially with the purchase a Pre-Paid Tuition card, normally priced at $130 for 10 classes. For this trial run, 5-classes will be $45 and 10-classes will be $80. If you wish to try a class before purchasing a pre-paid card, you may try a one-on-one trial lesson for $25.00. We will take the $25 off the purchase of a pre-paid  card if you decide to go forward with your training.

Contact me if you would be interested in this class @ sifusonnenberg@wingtsunaz.com or

Wing Tsun Arizona Gilbert and Scottsdale

The idea behind WingTsun kung fu is simplicity and logic.  It is quicker and simpler to throw a punch or kick in a straight line.  It is more logical to use the force of an attacker against them instead of your own to thwart an attack by a stronger person.

Wing Tsun classes are now available in Gilbert AND Scottsdale (new).  The Scottsdale location is Mountain View Karate, 8445 E. McDonald Dr., Scottsdale, AZ 85250. Call 480-905-9404 for the Scottsdale location free trial class registration. Be sure to be there early to get oriented.  Men and women, or teenagers 14 and older welcome (teenagers should bring parents).  Sifu John Brusstar is teaching the Leung Ting WingTsun® martial art system of self-defense at the school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 7:30 – 8:30 pm.

For the Gilbert location, fill out the web form on this web site or the Contact page, we will call you within 48 hours to set up your free trial class.

Mindfulness in WingTsun training

Mindfulness in WingTsun training

It seems obvious that learning a martial art requires one to “pay attention” when training.  However in a martial art, many techniques require repetitive training, that is, many repetitions of the same movement. In this situation, many people have trouble maintaining focus. The trouble usually lies with our busy lifestyles.  Many people are not accustomed to being alone with their own thoughts for periods longer than a few minutes! If they are not speaking with somebody, they are listening to a radio, a television or on a cell phone. These passive forms of distraction are actually harmful in the long term if not balanced with an appropriate amount of time using one’s own brain in an active way. The mindfulness taught in WingTsun is also a form of training in the mediation of Chuan (Zen) Buddhism. It is no coincidence that WingTsun was developed in China, a country with many Buddhists. However WingTsun became separate from the practice of the ancient religions of China after the burning of the Siu Lam Monastery. After that, WingTsun was passed down in a narrow line to various secular successors over its 300 year old history.

 

The Siu Nim Tau form is WingTsun’s way to train a beginner to become more mindful of the training. In other words, it is important to pay attention to the performance of techniques and therefore it is important to train this mindfulness at least once per day in the Siu Nim Tau form. It is hoped that the lessons learned in doing the Siu Nim Tau form will transfer to the rest of the student’s WingTsun training.
