Los Angeles Kung Fu movie opening (Ip Man 2 Demonstration) - part 2

Have a few photos to share from the Ip Man 2 Demonstration Performance at the Mann Grauman's Chinese on Saturday night.

Newly promoted black & white sash (2nd level) student Albert.

Black & white sash (just tested for yellow which is our 3rd level) Allan - also one of our webmasters and tech gurus.

I really like this one - Omar, one of our 'Pandas' (he's 5 years old) practices with Teacher Mark.

A group of us smile for the camera before entering the theater. I'm the one with my hands on Omar's (the little kid's) shoulders.

Ip Man 2 Demo - part 1

Last night three C.A.M.A. instructors (Paul, Gannon and Mark) plus Sifu Todd Shawn Tei did a demonstration of Wing Chun Kung Fu fighting techniques, chi sau (sticky hand drill), simultaneous attack and defense, etc. before the 7:40 pm screening of 'IP MAN 2' at the Mann Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood/Highland.

We're working on getting video and photos for you. In the meanwhile, go see the movie! It was a completely different experience seeing it on the big screen with EXCELLENT translations than it was seeing it, well, on DVD with awful translations...

If you haven't seen Ip Man (the first one) yet, definitely see that before Ip Man 2, though. You can stream it on Netflix or, if you're in our area, purchase it at our school for $10.

Did you see our demonstration? Or did you see the movie somewhere else? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
