Invincible Worldwide hosts virtual training sessions

One Wetherill Park martial arts academy has transitioned into the online world of training to help people remain physically and mentally positive during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When Invincible Worldwide's 12-session-a-day schedule could no longer continue, they brought Invincible HQ into people's homes through virtual training sessions via Facebook Live and Zoom last week.

The interactive and creative bi-weekly sessions have been enjoyed by 100 of their members giving youngsters a chance to learn the basics of punching, kicking and gymnastics, while adults can still experience martial arts, tricking and strength courses.

"We've designed the classes in a way that for people who are stuck at home, they have very limited space, and limited equipment," Founder Alan La said.

"They're things that anybody can do, and we encourage not just kids to do it but parents to get up and do it with your kids as well.

"I enjoy what I get to do and I feel like it's a privilege and it's definitely one of those things where I miss the live interaction with our members but that's just part of what we're having to adjust with for the time being."

The academy has also launched a free at-home challenge for the community on Tuesdays (kids) and Thursdays (adults).

"One of the biggest things with maintaining a positive attitude is your physical activity," La said.

The free classes will be held every Tuesdays at 5pm for kids under-12 and Thursdays 4pm for adults and can be accessed via the Invincible HQ Facebook Page.
