Kero asleep

I Came, I Saw, I Applauded

Shaolin Wheel of Life was amazing. :) This stuff is the real deal, even if they are fighting with weapons made of aluminum foil. The styles were real, the acrobatics were real, the athletecism was real.

We went down there with a handful of people from the school -- the same people, in fact, that I hung out with at the belt test last Saturday. Very friendly, very cool people. They all got to meet Laurie and she got to meet them, as well as Sifu Young and his wife, whose name escapes me at the moment. (Mrs. Young, I suppose!)

An evening well spent. Inspirational, educational, entertaining, and amazing. Oh! And there was Lion Dancing! Very nifty.

I broke down and bought a "Shaolin Wheel of Life" keychain, too. I needed one anyway, and this one has a very cool dragon on it. :)

I'll be picking up the DVD next, I suspect ... and of course, I'll be in class again Monday night. ;)

But now ... bedtime! G'nite everyone. :)
