New post, back dated to event date of 2013 July 27th!
Bustling crowds on 7th... 1028, 1026, aha. Found it. I extend my neck and gaze upwards, searching for the large banner draped across a background of bricks. Yes this was the right place. The cool NBA-esque logo.
A full-fledged WT gym in North America is hard to come by.
How about one with 2 floors? Yes, that's right... City Wing Tsun in New York, run by Sifu Alex Richter.
Since I happened to be in NYC for a mini-vacation, I wanted to visit this famous school.
Greeted by Sifu Nicole on the 1st floor, I was then led up to the 2nd floor with the Big A$$ fan (literally!) to say hi to Sifu Alex.
I could picture 30, 40 plus bodies just sweating it out, training hard... and trying to keep cool.
We took this photo. I promised I wouldn't use this photo to claim that I had received 100 hours of private instruction from Sifu Alex Richter. Rather, it was truly really taken after he taught me the super-secret concepts and techniques of the 4th WT form... all within that 10 minute visit. J/k, it was a good chat, and I got some tips about good eats in NYC too!
The next time I'm in NYC, I hope to actually train and visit group classes, and have some non-imaginary private instruction.
If you ever have a chance to visit City Wing Tsun and do some training, I'd be jealous!
