End of Year and Holiday Schedules – Happy Holidays to All

2022 has certainly been an interesting year – emerging from two years of lockdown and the pandemic was a test for all of us at the Academy. But re-emerge we did, and the year has certainly flown by!

The Academy will be closing according to the following schedule: in Bentleigh, classes will finish as from Friday, 16 December; while in Werribee, they will finish as from Tuesday, 20 December.

We will resume in the New Year as follows: in Bentleigh, classes will resume as from Friday, 3 February; and in Werribee, limited classes will resume as from Tuesday, 24 January at the Grange Community Centre. That week will only be on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and on Saturday morning, all at the Grange. Full schedule of classes in Werribee will resume as from Monday, 30 January at the Crossroads Uniting Church hall.

PLEASE NOTE: all children’s classes will be combined to run alongside the adult classes in Werribee on Mondays and Thursdays, when classes resume in the New Year, starting at 7pm.

Sifu and Simo Wong and all at the Qian Li Dao Academy wish all of our students, supporters and friends a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and may you all have safe and happy journeys over the summer holidays! Travel safe and be well – we look forward to working with you again in 2023! Happy Holidays!


Sifu Dana Wong Elected a 2022 Lalor Hero for His Community Commitment to Wyndham

Sifu Dana Wong was amongst a select group of individuals who were nominated and awarded the 2022 Lalor Hero Award for community service and commitment to the betterment of the Wyndham district.

Federal Minister for Lalor, Joanne Ryan, presented Sifu Wong his award at a Community Awards function earlier this month. With almost 20 years of continuous dedication and commitment to bringing quality martial arts training to the Werribee/Hoppers Crossing area, Sifu Wong has helped many in the local district to become more confident and productive members of the community.

Congratulations, Sifu Dana, may you continue to help others to grow and develop in order to reach their potentials!
