Lifestyle

Do you and your friend enjoy taking courses together, but find you like to do different things? Maybe you have a friend who would like to go on a photography course while you come for a painting course, or vice versa?

 

Well, here you'll find the best of both worlds in our Lifestyle courses such as Karate and Muay Thai classes. We offer a range of recreation classes to help Members find new hobbies or develop their skills further.

Our classes promote healthy, active lifestyles and a sense of community and provides our families the opportunity to meet their physical and social needs. These programs are an essential part of a well rounded community.

 


 

Flower Arrangement Class

By Freeman Florist

 

"Some flowers spoke with strong and powerful voices, which proclaimed in accents trumpet-tongued,

"I am beautiful, and I rule". Others murmured in tones scarcely audible, but exquisitely soft and sweet,
"I am little, and I am beloved"."

– George Sand

Muay Thai

A powerful form of martial arts, this “science of eight limbs” has developed for more than 1,000 years in Thailand. In Muay Thai, boxers typically apply maximum power in every technique, which is generated by turning of the hips followed by the body. Therefore, endurance and stamina are prerequisites for one to become a proficient Thai boxer.

Spend some time to learn the basics while packing in a challenging workout!

Private Karate by Sensei Tan Soo Lin

Karate is a martial art that focuses on striking with the arms, fists, hands, knees, elbows and feet. It also teaches defence techniques such as blocking and getting out of the way. Shotokan training is usually divided into three parts: kihon (basics), kata (forms or patterns of moves), and kumite (sparring). Techniques in kihon and kata are characterized by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs.

Member: $80 per session
(1 hour per session)
