Happy New Year
from Nigel & Fong
2015 was a busy year here in Penang with numerous events for the young students in Zhong Ding including a residential course over the New Year at the Zhong Ding Centre.
Zhong Ding goes from strength to strength in Penang and looks to grow even more in 2016.
This month sees more resources, for those of you who are members of the site, including Nigel talking about weapons.
As well as all the Ponderings, Articles and Videos already on the site for members there are new files every month. For example this month as well as a new talk from Nigel there are seven new videos.
In Penang, Malaysia this month saw a brilliant and very successful childrens wushu competition.
For all you Members out there Nigel has just posted his final video in his new 10 Part series (containing 12 videos!) of the Cheng Man Ching 37 posture form.
Also there is a new Pondok Pondering where Nigel talks about Xingyi and Bagua and their place in Zhong Ding.
And there is a new Article to read about Tests in Chinese martial arts.
So lots of excellent material for the serious Zhong Ding Member.
