Junior Instructors:

At Blue Crane we believe in developing the skill set of our more advanced students by offering select higher level students the opportunity to develop their leadership through the experience of teaching .By assisting the head instructor the student becomes a teacher themselves. Teaching titles are  given once the level of brown has been reached. (Sihing(male), or Sija(female).

  1. Hi Sigung! I am wondering if you are available to teach a one-time self-defense class. What would the cost be, how much space would you need, etc.
    thanks so much

    • I am indeed!- However I need more information before I can give you a price and a committment. We would need to know where, when, how many people, ages, experience level, etc. Our facility at 787 2nd ave east Owen Sound is available as well and is ideal for groups since all the mats etc are there. Please give me a call at 519 371 0991 and we will try to work something out. Thanks!
