Happy Chinese New Year! Our Field Trip to the "Soul of Shaolin" in New York City!

Dear Taichi Members:
We experienced the wonders of Shaolin Kung Fu from the "Soul of Shaolin" at Marquis Theatre today!
It's a spectacular presentation of the martial arts by more than 30 Chinese martial artists. We are still in awe of their skills which have to come from years of hard practice.
Our members recognized quite a few moves from our taichi forms and even yoga. As we know that taichi moves actually come from martial arts but nowadays taichi is practiced mainly for health benefits.
We also had a delicious dinner in Chinatown. Lucky us to have beat the crowd to get into this local-favoured seafood restaurant. Had it not for the big chill we would have hanged out there a lot longer to shop and to soak up the vibes of the Chinese New Year. Yes, it'll be Chinese New Year tomorrow--the Year of the Ox!
Happy New Year, especially to those who were born in this year! You'll get to where you want to through fortitude and hard work!
See you at the practice today!
