League Cup 2021-2022
Dear Students: From 27th September 2021 a new 'league' will commence (following on from the successful 2020-21 League),
with students competing for a trophy at the end of the 'season' (which is 9 months in duration).
It is different from any Opens held over the last fifteen years because the student who finishes first in the table (left side / top are seniors, the right side / lower, juniors) will win the main trophy. Juniors who place 2nd, 3rd and 4th will also win a trophy. Top three in Seniors only win a trophy.
How are points allocated?
Points are awarded to ten students in each table every week. So
attendance, noticeable skill improvement gained outside of class
plus the ability to closely follow what the instructor states during
class is of critical importance. Not only will you advance up the table
as a result, you will improve in your chosen discipline. Regardless of
where you are in the table, act with humility at all times.
What is the difference between a 'senior' student and a 'junior' student?
This definition was refined over the years - quite simply, because the standard improved so much that a new standard by so many of you was reached.
A Student who is on Syllabus 16 of Wing Chun, Rank 4 of Jeet Kune Do, or 4th Kyu in Karate (Tai Chi students do not take part in this league).
A student who is on Syllabus 1-15 of Wing Chun, Proficiency Rank 1-3 of Jeet Kune Do, 9th Kyu-5th Kyu of Karate.
Tuesday 28th June 2022: FINAL Tables Announced
PLEASE NOTE: Students on holiday means that points from 1 to 10 may not be awarded. For example,
if eight students attend, points from 3 to 10 will be allocated.
In the event of a points tie on the final day of the league, the student who is awarded the higher number of points for that final week will be placed in the higher league position.
15th May 2022 Update:
DOUBLE POINTS AWARDED if students train for both weeks in the second half of May (16-31st May)
PERSONAL NOTE AND REQUEST:
Dear Students, it is a honour to be your guide in your martial arts journey. I always aim to deliver professional lessons. However, sometimes life gets in the way and so, please bear with me over the next month or two as I do my best to heal my darling cat Saihdah who was injured in a road accident on 5th May. He was missing for over a week, but I was consumed with locating him - dead or alive. It was nothing short of a miracle that he was found.
Over the coming months it will be a stressful period, however I do intend to teach a full program, but still need to limit it where possible to Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I will still offer limited lessons on a Thursday and / or Saturday, but honestly need to keep some time free in case his condition worsens. Everything else is on hold in my life until he returns to full health.
I want to express my thanks to all of you who knew of the fast moving situation and offered Saihdah your best wishes and prayers. Some of you went above and beyond to help him, and you have my eternal gratitude for your support.
There are still a lot of points up for grabs in May and the closing month of June. As there may be fewer trophies available than last year, do you very best to finish as high as you can!
