Sanda, Sanshou or chinese boxing for women and men (first class for FREE)
Hi my friends, on Tuesday's we practice Sanda or Sanshou (Chinese Boxing)... **This class is half female and half male... so everybody is welcome! Sanshou (Wushu Sanshou), also known as Sanda (Wushu Sanda), Chinese boxing or Chinese kickboxing, is a Chinese self-defense system and combat sport. Wushu Sanshou is a martial art which was originally developed by the Chinese military based upon the study and practices of traditional Kung fu and modern combat fighting techniques; it combines full-contact kickboxing, which includes close range and rapid successive punches and kicks, with wrestling, throws, sweeps, kick catches, and in some competitions, even elbow and knee strikes. Our principal martial arts style is Shaolin wushu, so we try to learn this modality with our heart and never try to attack or defend with bad intention (like produce a dislocation or brake a bone with anybody, here we are like a family in martial arts, learning with love and compassion.) We leave outside our school any ego that can bring trouble in the classes. So, come and try your first class for FREE!!! We practice: Tuesday (usually is Sanda) and Thursday (usually is shaolin wushu)... but sometimes we change days and what we learn. About the teacher: Hernan has practiced Kung Fu and Wu Shu for 17 years. He won many tournament championships in South America, as well as world championships in Brazil and here in New Zealand. Hernan learnt his Kungfu from a Chinese Shaolin monk. He taught Kung fu in Chile, and now Wellington, New Zealand! WHAT TO WEAR ( not necessary if you do not have all): A comfortable top, mouth-guard , bandages, boxing gloves, flexible pants and flat shoes (just in case) WHAT TO BRING: Yourself, good energy and a smile :) TIME & DAYS: THURSDAY: 7:00pm TO 8:30pm PS: When it's a beautiful day we sometimes go to practice in a park. So please try arrive early (6:50pm) GOLDEN RULE: Please only RSVP if you are sure you can attend. If we don't receive any message after your confirmation, we will think that you don't come, and you will not be notified for cancellations. Cheers.

What we're about

This group is designed for people in their 20s and early 30s who want to meet new people, explore the greater Wellington region, and have a great time doing it! We'll get out and about in Wellington and do a variety of different things: walks and hikes, drinks in the pub, a cosy movie as it thunders outside, festival shows, line dancing, salsa parties, theatre, road trips, the odd pub quiz... you name it, and we'll give it a go!

We encourage anyone who wants to organise an event to give it a go! Unfortunately meetup no longer allows anyone to 'suggest an event', so if you're keen to arrange something, simply email us and we'll set it up for you. Get involved!
