I thought it was really cool that two respresentatives from Congressman DeSaulnier's office came in to the school, prior to the tournament to deliver his letter, and that the Mayor of Concord issued a proclamation. #markdesaulnier #laurahoffmeister #kungfu #ITKFA #tomizakischampions

Last night was another Parents Night Out. It was a lot of fun. We played group charades. The kids got really good. It was very entertaining to watch all the instructors and assistants work together on a group charade! We had the totally awesome #strictlytogopizza ! As well as popcorn and cupcakes. Prior to watching the 2nd movie, we had a group discussion on bullying. I think more kids actually feel asleep this time! They must have gotten worn out in kung fu class earlier in the day 🙂 The kids are getting fancy too. Instead of just sleeping bags, we had bean bag chairs too! I had a little fun with the photo studio, since it's hard to take good pictures in the dark, without a flash, but I bet the parents can still recognize their kids.

Choy Lee Fut Boxing is mostly known by its large rotations of the arms making variations in its applications of techniques, however the short range techniques are seldom seen due to their specialized nature. Sifu Troy Dunwood will teach a seminar involving the short range closing techniques of the famous 10,000 Elephants Fist.

This past weekend we took the instructors and assistants out for a team building event. (albeit missing Ryan & Dakotah due to previous commitments, and sihing Yas, who held down the fort for us - THANK YOU!) We try to do something every year. This year we went camping at Van Damme State Park. It was really beautiful. It's a great chance for Sifu to teach, with his infinite patience, things like - sweeping, cleaning, working together to put up a tent, take down a tent, leave the area cleaner than it was, etc. 🙂 They also embarked on a long hike. The gals went for 6 miles before catching a ride back to camp where they learned the awesomeness of lighter fluid! The guys went 11 miles. Naturally Sifu fast-paced the last 5 miles, and added 10 fist push-ups per bridge. They went over 10 bridges! Somehow, after dinner, they still had energy to play ultimate frisbee and kick the soccer ball around. As the sun went down, Sifu built an amazing fire in the fire pit, and we gathered around for roasted marshmallows and smores. Sifu told stories about what HIS sifu had them do, when he was 16, for their camping trips. The next morning everyone had their duties (assigned by sijeh Steffani) - whether it was to start the fire, cook different items, clean/wash dishes, etc. They had to work together. Then we set up a sandwich making table for everyone to make their lunches - and then clean it up! After breaking camp, we headed to Big River, which feeds into the ocean. During the 5 hour long drive home, we hit traffic on 37. About that time, everyone was going a bit crazy. We pulled off at a wildlife viewing area and stretched. There happened to be 9 poles on the trail, and we had 9 students. What do 9 kung fu students do when they see 9 poles - they have to climb them! See the cool photos. All electronics were taken away on Saturday. It was awesome, because they all interacted with each other; not their phones. I really enjoyed it. Thank you to the Vega's and Tseng's for letting us borrow some of their camping equipment. Thank you to all the parents for entrusting your children with us.

These legendary grandmasters will lecture on the traditions and etiquette of kung fu. They will cover what you should know about respect and conduct when practicing, when meeting others, when visiting schools, and when competing. Q & A at the end, as well as photo opportunity.
