The Chinese Day Out school excursion is unique in that it offers school students an opportunity to learn about Chinese culture and its values. It provides an introduction to valuable life skills that can help students grow into confident and responsible citizens.
Upon arrival at our Academy in the heart of Melbourne's Chinatown, students will be greeted by our Resident Instructor, and Grandmaster William Cheung himself if he is in Melbourne at the time.
The program starts with a visit to the Chinese Museum (duration 1 hour) where students will certainly appreciate the world's longest dragon and a guide will point out many other interesting Chinese artefacts.
Afterwards, next door at Cheung's Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy, the Kung Fu lesson will run for one hour. The lesson includes self defence techniques from the Anti-Bully and Stranger Danger programs outlined below, a brief introduction to the benefits of Traditional Wing Chun and a talk about philosophy and the importance of discipline, and respect for oneself and others.
The Chinese Day Out ends with a traditional Chinese lunch at the Chine On Paramount Restaurant, just a short 2 minute walk from the Academy.
This program can be tailored to suit a school's individual requirements. For bookings and further information, please telephone 03-9663 3588 after 11:00am.
ANTI-BULLY AND STRANGER DANGER PROGRAMS
We also offer schools an 'Anti-Bully' Program, focusing on the 'be nice' principle. We teach children and teenagers to avoid conflict by treating others with respect and to (if confronted by a bully) control their anger and meet that conflict with calmness and without violence.
The program covers some very effective self-defence moves, with the emphasis that any form of violence must be used only defensively and always as a last resort.
Our 'Stranger Danger' Program teaches children and teenagers how to avoid and deal with unwelcome attention and contact with strangers. This program is particularly popular with, and beneficial to, young women. In both programs, students learn how to develop the following skills:
*Focus *Teamwork *Control *Balance *Memory *Discipline *Fitness *Coordination
These programs can be conducted in as little as two hours during school hours, after school or in the holidays, and can be tailored to meet the needs of each school.
For bookings and further information please call (03) 9663 3588 after 11am Monday to Friday.
