Opening Wing Chun Business Fees

$1,600 goal

Steve Grogan  STILLWATER, NY
In 1995, I started learning Wing Chun Kung Fu, and I immediately fell in love with it. From the first class, I dreamed of being able to teach it someday. My goal would be to teach it to victims of bullying, so they can raise their self-esteem AND know how to handle themselves.

Recently, I was granted that permission. However, it has been difficult because I have had no place where I could teach. Now that has changed, but there is a new challenge: being able to afford rent, insurance, and forming an LLC. The funds will be used for:

*One year's worth of rent at a gym in Mechanicville
*One year of liability insurance
*All the fees associated with forming an LLC

I would like to raise the funds at least for a year's worth of tuition and the insurance (total: $1500) within 2-3 months. As for the LLC, that can be earned gradually. As long as I have the rent and insurance, I will be good to get this thing started.

If I get this support, then you will be helping me make a dream of 20 years come true. While I will certainly show my gratitude to my donors in various ways (free private lessons perhaps, or other means), I will also be paying it forward because, having been a victim of bullying when I was in school, I would be reaching out to the community and making parents of bullied kids aware of my class. 

Stay tuned for various rewards.

I lowered the campaign amount because, for now, I am concerned with only 2 things: a year's worth of rent and a year's worth of personal liability insurance. The other things (website expenses, forming an LLC) can come later.

I have a 2-hour Introduction to Wing Chun class coming up at Hudson Valley. Hopefully I will get some students who carry over from that, but in the meantime I'm still going to run this campaign!
