Rules

Dress Code
  1. Clean plain white t-shirt (no logos).
  2. Clean plain black pants (no logos). 
  3. Black Kung Fu slippers with non-marking soles − no black rubber or brown plastic soles permitted because they mark the floor. Black or white Feiyue shoes of original model and colours are also acceptable.  
  4. For safety reasons, all jewelry must be removed during class. 
  5. Fingernails clipped − to avoid injuring your training partners, your fingernails must be clipped as short as possible every 3 days. If you can still see a free edge, they are not short enough. Students have the right to refuse to train with anyone who has not cut their nails short enough. 
  6. Proper hygiene is expected of everyone − this means your person, whatever you wear, and whatever you bring into the building must be clean and free of any unpleasant odours (including clothes, socks, towel, shoes, boots, jacket, etc). 
  7. If the curtains of the changing stalls are closed, it means there's someone changing in there. So, wait your turn. When you are done with the changing stall, remember to open the curtain completely so we know it's empty.

Basic Rules of Etiquette
  1. Enter the Gwoon with a spirit of humility, respect, and cooperation. 
  2. "Empty your cup" so as to be open to receiving new ideas and concepts.
  3. Bring the proper training attire. 
  4. Arrive on time. Late protocol: do 30 push-ups, then practice your forms diligently on your own until Sifu instructs you to do otherwise. If you are unable to do 30 push-ups, simply arrive on time. 
  5. Put your cellphone on silent. No ringing. No vibrating. 
  6. To show respect toward our space, we salute before entering and before leaving the training floor, i.e. when arriving, when going to the washroom and back, and when leaving. 
  7. Say hi to people when you arrive. 
  8. Salute each other before and after partnering up. 
  9. Avoid coming to class if you have a cold or any form of contagious disease (warts, flu, gastroenteritis, etc). Consult your doctor, rest, and get well before returning to class. 
  10. Pay your fees on time.

FAQs

FAQs

Q1: Is it okay if I am not in uniform for the free trial class?
A: Yes. For the trial class, just bring plain and comfortable training clothes and non-marking shoes. However, your nails must be cut short, and all jewelry must be removed. Also, bring a bottle of water with you.  

Q2: Am I too old to start learning Wing Chun?
A: It depends on what you mean by "old". We have students of all ages. Most of our students are in their 20's, 30's and 40's. Regardless of your age, if you can run up the stairs at Mont-Royal metro station, you can train with us.

Q3: I am not very flexible. Can I still learn Wing Chun?
A: Luckily, Wing Chun is a system based on economy of motion. Therefore, even someone with average flexibility can become proficient at it.

Q4: Do you use a belt ranking system?
A: “Belts are only good for holding up your pants” — Bruce Lee. So no, we are not in the business of selling coloured belts. We are intrinsically motivated, and we strive for continual self-improvement.

Furthermore, we do not sell uniforms, we do not level test every six months, we don't charge registration fees or association fees, and we do not make you sign long-term contracts. These represent an average savings of 125$ to 200$ per year.  

Q5: At what age can my child start learning Wing Chun Kung Fu?
A: 14.
