Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting

March 25, 2014

Today was another full day.  We began with a class on Beijing Opera, complete with painting our own opera masks.  The modern interpretations of classic mask design got pretty interesting.  Then it was off to PE class and a lesson in kung fu.  We learned different positions and then each group of students, including our kids, had to demonstrate what they had learned.  Some picked it up more quickly then others.  After lunch we headed out on the town, with a trip to the Maritime Museum and the Shaolin Monastery.  The students were very intrigued by how young some the students at the monastery were.  Many were the age of our group or younger. Here is a glimpse of what the day looked like.
