Wah Lum Kung Fu Little Mantis

THANK YOU FOR BEING A WAH LUM MEMBER!

  • First Day Procedures:
    • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class to scan in at the front office, and meet your instructor.
      • Scan In for Attendance:  The front office will print out a barcode for the student, and it will be placed on their book.
      • Scan in times are: 20 minutes before class, or 10 minutes after class has begun.  You may laminate it, put it on a sticker, or use your mobile device to scan in.
    • Extra uniforms and shoes can be purchased in the front office.  There is also always water, Gatorade, and quick snacks for sale.
    • Please bring your blue student pamphlet and sash to your first class.  Your instructor will teach you how to tie the sash and go over the handbook.
    • If you are being dropped off to class, and parents would like to wait on campus, there is a waiting area by the fish pond.  If parents decide to wait in the car, we ask that they do not leave the cars running as this is a hazard for the students, since we often train outdoors.
IMPORTANT INFO TO KNOW:
  • Uniforms:
    • Uniforms may not be altered.
    • Full uniform must be worn to class, or child cannot participate in class. (Wah Lum issued: Shirt, shoes, pants, sash)  Instead, they will stretch and observe their classmates for the day.
  • Parent Seminar:
    • Sifu Mimi presents a seminar to all the parents covering topics that range from the benefits of Kung Fu in a child’s life to how to respond when a child announces they do not want to come to Kung Fu. You can watch her entire seminar by CLICKING HERE
      The password is PS2018
  • Parent Observation Policy:
    • Parents may not observe the class: From experience, it is disruptive to the children and the instructors to have the students looking back at their parents during class.  It is not good for their concentration and attention to the training.  They will get more out of class if we have their undivided attention. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
    • Parents may be present for the first 10 minutes, but we encourage drop off.
    • Parent Observation Day:  Realizing how important it is for parents to see their children’s kung fu training, we allow all the parents to observe class once a month.  This will be during the LAST WEEK OF EACH MONTH. You must schedule your visit with the front office.  If there is a schedule conflict, please see the front office so we can schedule an alternate day.
  • Photo / Video / Social Media:
    • You may not take photos during class, but you can take a photo of your child in uniform after class.
    • Any videos, photographs, or images taken at the Wah Lum Temple are prohibited from being used on any public share sites, such as but not limited to, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, etc.
    • While we are happy with your enthusiasm, these images are a part of the traditional Wah Lum system and we would like to keep the privacy of our style within the system.  Grandmaster Chan has worked hard to keep the system traditional and to ensure that students are only learning from certified Sifus
  •  Books:
    • Your child needs to bring his/her handbook every day.  This gives us the opportunity to review your child and check his/her progress.  Please take care of the book and write your child’s name clearly on the front page.  You may use clear book covers to preserve it.  Please do not remove notes in the book.
    • Your child will be issued a barcode on their book so that they can scan in before class. Please note you cannot scan in earlier than 20 minutes before class or 15 minutes after class has begun.
  • Drop Off & Pick Up:
    • Please remember to drop off your child no earlier than 15 minutes before class and pick up no later than 15 minutes after class.  Class times are M, W, F: 5:15 pm – 6:00pm, SAT 11:00am – 11:45 pm
    • If you plan to wait for your child on campus we kindly request you use the circle bench area by the fish pond.  If you decide to wait in your car, we ask that you do not leave the cars running, as this is a health hazard for the students since we train outdoors.
    • Extended Care: $10 per 15 minutes (before or after classes).  Please let the office know if you plan to utilize this program.
  • Testing Policy:
    • Your child will test once they reach a certain level in the curriculum.  We will inform you when your child is ready to test by email.
  • Communications:
    • A weekly newsletter will be sent with important information on the school.  Please read them!  They are short and informative and let you know of any schedule changes.  Your information is never shared.
    • To join our secret members only Wah Lum Warrior FACEBOOK GROUP – please add us as a friend and request to join the group HERE. Get tips, advice, and secret kung fu moves are revealed to our members only!
  • Keep Us Updated:
    •  If at any time, you change any information, including emails, contact info, and bank account, please notify the office immediately so we can update our records.
  • Safety – Please be aware of the following areas at the Temple:
    • The plum flower poles and any garden area are strictly off limits.
    • Kids must not play/jump from the stage area located on the left patio.
    • Please have your kids wait on the porch for pick up as the parking lot is busy.
    • No plants or fruits on the property are to be disturbed or eaten.
  • Student Evaluation
    • If at anytime the student is not progressing or disruptive to the class, the Wah Lum Temple may determine that private lessons are a better fit for the Little Mantis.  A parent meeting will be scheduled to go over options if necessary.
    • First Month Evaluation
      • As our Little Mantis kids vary in maturity and the ability to thrive in a group environment, we consider the first month a trial period for both the school and the Little Mantis.  
      • During the first month of your child’s training, he/she will be evaluated to ensure he/she is ready for the class by tracking their progress and observing your child’s behavior in the class.
      • We encourage parents to voice any concerns they have with a Sifu during the trial period as well.  
      • If the Wah Lum Temple determines that he/she is not ready for the class, we will inform parents immediately and discuss options for the student.
