Kungfu and Cultural Differences

March 25, 2015

Today started off with a trip to the Chinese Wushu Association for a demonstration and instruction of traditional Chinese Kungfu.  The athleticism was extraordinary, and the national champions were very patient while providing an informative and fun experience for our kids.  The trip was followed up with an engaging discussion between our crew and KMFLS students who are planning on attending schools in the US.  Our visit with Kunming Foreign Language School concluded with a “Summing Up Meeting”, an exchange of gifts, and a delicious final meal with the group as a whole.  We are on our way home in the morning after transformative stay in the Yunnan Province.
