We continued our discussion on the Wing Tsun Kwoon curriculum. This time we focused on the class structure and lesson plans. We constructed each class to include fitness, instruction/concepts, repetition/drills, and application/self-defense. Each class will build on the concepts, movements, and forms required to progress through each student grade level.
As part of constructing the lesson plan, Sifu Ray tries it out with Si-Hing Dave in order to make our teaching program more efficient and effective.
Si-Hing Allan discussed having a web-based/mobile solution for our clients to simplify every transaction from booking a class, adjusting their schedules, update/pay for membership, send instant notifications to confirm a session, class reminder, follow ups after a class and many other scenarios.
We are also actively working on finding a suitable location with class schedules that are convenient for our clients. In the meantime, please keep sending us your location suggestions. We appreciate your help in finding space for Wing Tsun Kwoon!

SiFu Ray, Si-Hing Dave and Si-Hing Allan met today to discuss the next step of the plan. They will be incorporating the business and bootstrapping the start-up. In evaluating the potential branch locations, they used their research to narrow the different areas within the city of Chicago where their target demographics live. The next step of the search is to call and set-up meetings with the different locations and determine if they suit our needs/requirements.
SiFu Ray showed Si-Hings Dave and Allan the draft of the curriculum. All we can say is that this curriculum focuses on the understanding of the principles/concepts of Wing Tsun, then provide the students with the tools to learn the movements/forms/sections and apply them effectively! SiFu Ray will continue fine tuning the curriculum and Si-Hing Dave will determine the best approach for implementation.
There is A LOT of work ahead, but we have the knowledge, experience, skills, drive, and commitment to make Wing Tsun Kwoon successful and provide our clients with a service that meets/exceeds their expectations!
Last week SiFu Ray and Si-Hing Allan met with SiFu Carson Lau (Chief Instructor of the CWTA) and SiFu Steve Chan (Head Instructor of CWTA Evanston, IL branch) to discuss the new CWTA Chicago, IL branch that we will be opening in the near future.
Wing Tsun Kwoon presented the business plan, financial projections and potential locations of the new branch. After the presentation, SiFu Lau discussed the terms of the CWTA branch as well as the CWTA branch rules. SiFu Steve provided insight into running a branch in the Chicagoland area and gave SiFu Ray and Si-Hing Allan advice on starting up the new branch. Both SiFu Lau and SiFu Steve agreed with SiFu Ray, Si-Hing Dave and Si-Hing Allan’s plan and will be supporting them in opening the new CWTA branch in the city of Chicago.
We are very excited that we have an agreement and will now be focused on the next steps of our plan (i.e. incorporation, financing, location, schedule, curriculum, etc.). We will continue updating our blog with our progress. If you are interested in becoming a student at Wing Tsun Kwoon, please fill out the contact information at the “Contact” tab of our website.
