A Social Site for all Man Sau Gwoon members to meet
This message is of particular importance to Wing Chun practitioners of Earle's Academy lineage, (of which Man Sau Gwoon is a part) and comes to you from the Australasian Ving Chun Kuen Sports Association.
Our public website, (earleswingchun.com) has been a success with some 200 members & approaching 15,000 views of the videos. What you may not know is that we have been developing a second website expressly for those of you who are of Earle's Academy lineage who support the Australasian Ving Chun Kuen Instructors Association &/or the Australasian Ving Chun Kuen Sports Association.
There are a number of benefits associated with being a registered member of the Association, but often those benefits are not fully appreciated or understood by some. But now, as the year of the Dragon draws to a close, we are ready to introduce perhaps our most powerful membership benefit yet.
As you are aware our membership is widely dispersed, and as an association one of the problems we faced was how to make VCK technical material, both written and media, available to you (Earle's Academy lineage) without burdening you with further costs, as DVD production can be reasonably expensive.
At the same time we wish to keep the material 'within the family', so to speak, since it is our goal to make available Ving Chun material of a technical nature that is not readily available elsewhere. The video(s), for example, will not be self-promotional or for entertainment, but genuine training guides. (Some of which will be highly technical in nature and only available to Instructors in the first instance).
Make no mistake, collectively this material is worth thousands of dollars, but it will be made available on the Association website free of charge to eligible members, since it is membership support that makes it possible.
There are 2 simple requirements to become (and remain) a member of the Association website; 1/ Be a paid up member of the Association, &, 2/ have a completed profile. These simple requirements will be strictly enforced. (Instructors also should be sure their membership is up to date).
SO JOIN NOW: Email your name, the name of your Instructor or senior, when you commenced training/training history etc., to me at email@example.com and I will forward you the website address and any other information you may need to become a registered Association member. That's firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember, as well as the Technical information there are other advantages of association membership, and full details are available on the website.
I am really looking forward to February which ushers in the year of the Snake. Snake will bring some obstacles, but with hard work and persistence (kungfu!) Snake will bring good fortune and prosperity.
I look forward to meeting with you sometime in 2013, meanwhile I wish you and your loved ones safe travel. Kevin Earle.
