October 2020 Update

Hi All, I just wanted to give you a quick club update - how things are, and what we’ve been up to recently. Adjusting to Covid Things do seem to be settling down (although sometimes a little up-and-down) and we are in the routine of running the classes at Claremont...

Claremont is Open Again!

The Strange and Unexpected This whole thing has been a strange experience for me, as I’m sure it has been for everyone else. I have taught Kung Fu for more than 20 years in the traditional way, relying on contact to teach and adjust my students, and the Covid-19...

On habits

Others have written about the transition from training at Claremont and St Luke’s to training in our living rooms, here and here. Going to class entailed a set of practices or habits that I relied on to get myself into a training frame of...

When the Living Room becomes a Training Hall

So. I’m in the living room in Brighton, which... well, it isn’t very big. OK, it’s tiny. Barely big enough to swing a cat (that’s a cat-o’-nine-tails, not an actual cat — little history snippet, there). I’m looking at the screen, on which I can see Dave, myself and my...

Remote Control: Kung Fu in the Living Room

I have been training Tiger Crane Kung Fu with Instructor Dave Courtney Jones for… Well… let’s just say it’s a number of years incommensurate to my progress through the pattern gradings! When it became necessary to move away from London for work in 2018, I continued to...

Online Kung Fu Training – Fighting the Virus!

Online Kung Fu Training all started with a Pyjama Party… Well, at least the "online" part of "Online Kung Fu Training" did… A student showed me a photo of her and her friends all up on the same screen, having a pyjama party together, but from their own separate houses...

Italy Training Camp 2019

The start of this kung fu training camp begins just before dawn, with a group of 9 figures huddling on top of a hill in the cold, as they wait for the first warm glow of dawn to appear on the horizon. Across the valley we can discern the silhouettes of hills rising...

The Duck Walk Challenge…!

Tiger Crane Kung Fu raises money every year for Claremont Project, a charity that helps Islington's over-55's. Claremont’s mission is all about facilitating the creative process so that its members can flourish as individuals, friends and as a community, and so that...
