Roadmap step 3 and restarting our classes

ETCA web admin | June 2, 2021 |

With the move in May to step 3 of the Roadmap out of Covid we’ve been able to start our indoor classes again. There has been some re-organisation of classes with some classes being closed, others re-opened and a couple of new ones starting in June. Check the Classes menu at the side for more details – note that there are two sub-menus, one for Tai Chi classes and another for Lok Hup Ba Fa.

The new classes will be at Danbury on Thursday afternoons and at Broomfield on Monday evenings.

Our instructor ‘committee’ met recently at Oaklands park in Chelmsford to discuss our next steps as Covid recedes, and then had a practise session together afterwards…

“Fan penetrates through back”
“Separate foot to the Right”

Recovering from the Lock-Down

ETCA web admin | July 14, 2020 |

It feels like lockdown is now gradually lifting and some of us are now meeting up for outdoor and socially distanced practice sessions. We know many others are still shielding either themselves or their partners and are unable to join these sessions. So, we will continue to produce our fortnightly News Sheet to support all our members who are still practising at home, indoors or in the garden. The classes may be on hold, but our Academy is not.
