END OF AN ERA

END OF AN ERA

13/05/2021

"This moment marks the end of an era”, wrote Chief Instructor, Kelly Bunyan, at the end of her last online-only Kickboxing class and Kung Fu class last night.

She added in her school's WhatsApp group, “Despite not being of our choosing, it was a special part of our school’s history. Thank you for your support throughout this phase. Onwards and upwards. Much love to you all.”

This sparked an outpouring of positive comments from her students, new and old, all expressing their gratitude for the school's commitment to maintaining a sense of normality, during very abnormal times.

For example, Jess, one of Kelly’s Elite Squad members (Black Belt and Black Sash), who has trained at the school for over 18 years wrote, “With you at the helm, we’ll weather every storm.”

Phoebe, one of Kelly’s higher graded students wrote, “Kelly, without your passion and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be here!!” 

Frederike, approaching Black Belt, summed it up when writing, “What a fantastic evening of training to commemorate the end of a unique and very special KB era!!! Thank you so much Kelly, for tonight’s classes and all the ones before! SEE YOU IN THE DOJO where we will be ki-ai-ing!!!” 

Indeed, the online classes have been amazing and lifesaving for many of our students. While many people decided to write the year off and hibernate, our students continued to be inspired to set goals and achieve them. Many members took new belts and sashes in Kickboxing and Kung Fu. 

Moving classes online was certainly not by choice, but so many benefits have been derived by this newfound approach. It is so wonderful that we have been able to welcome back our international members, as well as the newer members who found solace in learning the martial arts with us from the comfort of their own home.

There were further countless positive outcomes, for example, through Kelly’s innovative teaching method, the students learned as if they were in the dojo, but were fortunate to have the added benefit of partnering up (virtually, of course), and sparring with their Chief Instructor - this does not happen in the dojo and was a treat for all involved.

In the Kung Fu classes, our members were able to use brooms, mops, whatever they could find, to learn how to train with weapons, such as swords and staffs, which is a rare occurrence for the lower grades at the physical classes. There was no shortage of different and interesting lesson plans, which all fuelled motivation and dedication. 

We look forward to welcoming all our members back into our London Kickboxing classes venue (Euston) next week. Are you ready to be a part of the positive energy?
