City Wing Tsun is growing and improving at a record pace! Here are a couple of the new changes in effect:
FIRST NYC HEAD INSTRUCTOR: I'm very proud to announce that my student, Sifu Craig Savino is the new head instructor for City Wing Tsun in NYC. For myself, I will be in charge of teaching the instructors both in my NYC location and in my network of schools. Craig will be in charge of teaching the students that join our NYC school. We will be working very closely together to insure that all students at CWT are progressing they way they should and achieving the goals they have set out to accomplish.
NEW ASSOCIATION NAME: The organizational structure of my network has now taken a strong shape. The name of our association is now the City Wing Tsun Athletic Association (CWTAA). The CWT website will be relaunched in the next few weeks to reflect this new name. The old CWT website will be solely for our association, separate from the NYC school website which is www.learnkungfunyc.com
NEW ASSOCIATION STRUCTURE: In the recent past I have been against the word "association" as the former powers-that-be have sullied it senselessly. Instead of succumbing to the what others have destroyed, I have decided to take that word back and redefine it. At CWTAA we associate with each other out of choice rather than obligation or fear. Rather than allowing any WT instructors to join and open a school, I have severly heightened the entrance requirements to our association. I have stopped accepting new schools into the network as I want to focus on building up the quality of the instructors that are already in it.
For the CWTAA I am the chief-instructor and my senior student Sifu Nicole Daniels is the assistant chief-instructor. She can teach workshops and grade students in my place should I be traveling. Sifu Nicole is the highest ranking female instructor and still only female WT sifu in North America.
I will make an announcement when the update to the CWT site is finished.
