They are normally in a big group so had to 'jar gar' little ones.
my DS's wushu class, the little ones are grouped together under 1 trainer, but i think the youngest is 5 or 6 yr old.
OIC, thanks tankee :wink:

There is a beginner wushu class for young children on sun 10-11.30am at Yio chu kang CC. Recommended 4 yrs old & above. However, if your child is able to adapt to the class, the instructor may consider accepting younger children. It has been there for many years & also suits the needs of children well. You may want to check it out at the CC.

I have been training in this wushu since i was a child, & i'm also an assistant instructor coaching the young children. There are also classes at other CCs in the east & west. Kindly PM me for more details. :)

Wushu for CCA

Post by buds » Thu Jun 24, 2010 2:40 pm

Hi all. My DD2 is a very flexible and hyper-active girl and i'm considering
to allow her to join Wushu for her CCA, since they offer that in her sch.
Can anyone share more about this sport?

I'm in 2 minds whether to send her for gymnastics or wushu at the moment.
Both seem to fit her super active nature and i know for sure she will like it.
Was initially considering ballet as well since it is also offered in her school,
but she's definitely not a girly sort of girl. More tomboy-ish like me... so i
think ballet wud bore her after a while.

How much does it cost to learn wushu outside in say CCs?
I want to make a comparison to the school's fees which i
should think would be cheaper. Thanks in advance. :D

Hi buds

My dd is taking wushu currently at cc. We pay $148 (passion member) for a term of 10 lessons of 2 hrs each lesson but need to pay extra for the uniform, shoes, weapons they'll be learning (normally same weapon for 2 terms) and there'll be a grading test after 2 terms and we need to pay for that as well.

Dd enjoys the wushu lessons, one of the few she'll look forward to each week. They spend about an hour doing warming up, stretching and kicking exercises before going into the routine proper, then about 10 mins of warming down. Sometimes they get to play games as well. It was tough for her initially as she'll get muscle ache from the pulling and stretching but once she got the hang of it, she simply loves them. When they get to the routine for each weapon, they'll need to remember to steps so it gets a little stressful but once they master it, again, they should enjoy it.

Wushu for CCA

Post by buds » Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:15 pm

Hi barney! That's very useful information! Thank you! :hugs:

I think i'll go for the wushu in her school first since there will
be less travelling involved to and fro. I'll find out more details
from her school when school reopens next week. :wink:

She says she saw her friends performing wushu in school before,
so when i raised it with her if she would be keen to make it her
CCA... she started showing me some moves. :lol:

I suppose that is a resounding yes! :love:

Hi smurf. Ya, that's opposite awrite! :lol:
But nevertheless i do think it is a good idea
as it builds up their confidence, regular exercise
and of course the learning of a new skill/sport. :D

I'm gonna find out when she can start once school
reopens next week. :wink:

CC also cost $148? then yours must be a good one!
my boy used to attend CC wushu at $50 for 6mths! weekly of 2 hrs each.
the routine is very dry and ya...routine. and ds1 is a piece of toufu.
we stopped after 1 term.
buds,
no harm trying out wushu, but i think gymnastics will be more interesting and physical. then again really depends on interest and teachers.
MHO.
