Summer Term Registration & COVID Update

Summer Term Begins May 3rd - Register Today with Confidence!

Consider striving for greater health this summer! We hope you will join us for the summer term which runs from May 3 to August 15. There is a 1 week break from June 28 to July 4 and a total of 14 weeks of classes as usual.

We added a lot of new content last term to many of our Shaolin classes, and the summer term will be a great way to learn new things and improve our techniques.

We anticipate starting with Virtual Classes, then transitioning to outdoor classes at Grange Park (likely by late May), and finally back to indoor classes at our downtown location (likely by July). Please take note of schedule details and changes below before deciding how many tokens to purchase.

For the Fall Term starting September, we expect all classes to resume indoors at our downtown school. We may be running fewer classes with a cap on number of students as we rebuild the school. Please note that Summer Term students will get priority registration in case classes do become full.

Why You Will Want to Get the COVID Vaccine As Soon As Possible

Vaccines have already shown to be highly effective in preventing COVID infection. We expect that the vaccines will become widely available to everyone in Ontario by July or sooner.

A COVID vaccination certificate will likely be required by the government or many private institutions for any one who wants to participate in indoor activities. Therefore, please consider getting the vaccine as soon as possible!

This also means we will likely be able to reopen our school for indoor classes sometime during the summer term (likely end of July or early August).

Our Summer Term Plan

We will be hosting classes (with some exceptions) at Grange Park when we are allowed to have more than 10 students. This will apply to all our classes including Shaolin, Wudang, and Wing Chun classes.

With the Stay-at-Home Order enacted today, the earliest we will likely be able to train outdoors for Shaolin classes is end of May or early June (by early May, the order may be extended or they will start with smaller outdoor groups under 10 people). Wing Chun and Wudang will start earlier if allowed as long as the number of students is within the limits allowed.

Because we have some students who require Virtual Classes (they train remotely or do not feel comfortable with in-person outdoor training until vaccines are widely available), there will be 2 guaranteed Virtual Class days - Tuesdays and Sundays. This means all the classes on these days will continue to be held virtually throughout the summer term.

The best thing is that we are ensuring uninterrupted training throughout the summer term! You can count on Virtual Classes as a fall back.

Summer Term Schedule

We will continue the Summer Term with a similar schedule as the Winter Term. Please note a couple of changes:

Shaolin Qigong Intermediate Forms II is moved to Tuesdays at 7pm to ensure that all Qigong classes will continue through Virtual Zoom sessions.

Shaolin Kung Fu Foundation I & II has been removed on Tuesdays at 7pm. The 8pm Shaolin Kung Fu Forms I & II will remain.

Wing Chun has returned and will be tentatively held on Thursdays at 7pm.

The theme for Shaolin Qigong Intermediate Forms II class this summer will be 'Kidneys'. We will be exploring the functions of the kidney and why it's so important to nurture them, understand the energy nodes along those points, diagnose problems, read and interpret pulse, and learn to channel our qi into our kidney meridian to soothe or boost the organ.

Kids Summer Camp

We are expecting to run Kids Summer Camp at the downtown Toronto school in-person from August 16-20 and August 23 to 27 (Monday to Fridays from 9am to 3:30pm as usual). We may extend it to a 3rd week from August 30 to September 3) if there is demand for it.

You can now register confidently for kids summer camp to ensure your spot. We will not be accepting payment until early July, unless the camp becomes full.

If for any reason we are unable to run the camp then we will issue a full refund.

Fall Term Outlook

By September, everyone will have had the opportunity to be vaccinated. We expect to be able to run classes normally by then (and without having to wear masks indoors!). Please note that we may start with a limited number of classes and cap the students. As we rebuild the school in the coming months we will reopen more classes.
