President: Marcus C. Häggrot
Having trained kung fu for a few years
before coming to Oxford in 2010, I was happy to find that there was a
student-run kung fu club
in Oxford. I joined OUKFC, liked the open, relaxed,
spirit of the club, and stayed.
Taking over as the new president of club, I hope
to maintain this spirit, so that OUKFC remains a friendly place for committed
Secretary: Jacques Deere
Firstly, I am a total beginner at kung fu.
I came to Oxford at the beginning of 2013 and decided to start kung fu as I had
an interest in it for a while. I really enjoy the training, it is focused but
the atmosphere is relaxed. My intention is to carry on with kung fu while I am
in Oxford and so was more than happy to take on the position of secretary.
I'm a third year who's been learning Hung Gar with OUKFC since I came to
Oxford in 2011. I've stayed with the club thanks to the enjoyable
atmosphere and the steady progress I've been making under our very
capable instructors, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun
way to keep fit and learn a bit of self defense.
I look forward to my year as treasurer and hope to help out the club wherever possible.
IT Officer: Jonathan Kochems
I am a first year graduate student at Worcester
College. Last year I took up Kung fu with the club and so I'm relatively new to
Kung fu and martial arts, just like the majority of our members. The physical
as well mental exercise is what I enjoy about Kung fu and I hope, some day I
will get the hang of it.
