We are less than six (6) weeks away from opening day (18Jun2013)! It’s been awhile since we last posted at our blog, facebook and twitter pages, but that doesn’t mean that we have been sitting idle. We have been working diligently these past few weeks to complete the remaining tasks we have on our project plan.
Facility Rental Agreement
- We have finalized and signed the rental agreement with the Owner of the facility!
- We are currently working on purchasing and installing several wall bags and a wooden dummy at the facility. Our target is to have at least the wall bags installed by the time we open.
General Liability Insurance
- We have submitted our application and are waiting for our Certificate of Insurance.
- Participant Waivers are available online as part of the Registration Process at our website.
Scheduling and Business Management System
- Zen Planner has been integrated in our website (www.wingtsunkwoon.com)!
- Visit our Schedule Page (http://wingtsunkwoon.com/schedule/),
- Pricing Page (http://wingtsunkwoon.com/pricing/), and
- Members Page (http://wingtsunkwoon.com/members/) to experience the convenience of being able to view our class descriptions, register, schedule, and pay for classes, manage your account, and view your attendance and performance history.
- Zen Planner has also been integrated in our Facebook Page! Visit our Facebook Page and click on “Schedule” (https://www.facebook.com/wingtsunkwoon) to view class descriptions, register, and schedule classes.
- We are still evaluating several merchant service providers. This means that the online payment system is still not active at our website, but you can still register for classes and pay at the facility.
- Once we decide which provider meets our business needs and our account is set-up, we will add the account information into our Business Management System.
- Once installed, we still need to execute the performance qualification on the system to ensure that the system operates and performs as intended (i.e. test if the payments via credit cards and ACH are processed properly) before we implement the payment system at our website.
- After more than four (4) months of development work, we have our curriculum, class structure, and lesson plans in the final stages of completion.
- We have been trying out each lesson and fine tuning the instruction several times a week to make sure that the objective(s) is(are) met and in line with our program/curriculum.
- We are now ready for a dress rehearsal (Our tentative date is 18May2013, Saturday at 1:00PM) wherein we will runthrough a class lesson plan with a focus group at the facility. The purpose of this rehearsal is to get constructive feedback regarding our Wing Tsun Kwoon program and instruction as well as workout logistics and time management, so that we can continuously improve on our program.
- If you are interested in being part of this focus group, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . We are looking for several people that have different backgrounds, objectives and martial arts experience.
Intensive 3-Day Instructor Training with Sifu Carson Lau
- We are excited to announce that Sifu Carson Lau will be in Chicago from 31May2013 to 02Jun2013 to provide intensive training to the instructors of Wing Tsun Kwoon.
- One of the benefits of being a part of the Carson Wing Tsun Academy (CWTA) is direct access to training by Sifu Carson Lau, the highest ranked and most experienced Wing Tsun instructor in North America.
- The primary objective of Sifu Lau’s follow-up visit is to fine tune Wing Tsun Kwoon’s teaching program to ensure that its instructors are re-calibrated to the same teaching standards set by Sifu Carson Lau.
We are happy to announce that we already have a few people signed up for classes at Wing Tsun Kwoon! We would like to invite more people who are interested in training with us to register for a Free 2-Week Trial and experience Wing Tsun Kwoon’s classes for yourself (https://wingtsunkwoon.zenplanner.com/zenplanner/portal/freeTrial.cfm).
We look forward to training with you and share our passion for Wing Tsun!
