Thank you very much for all the parents and friends who attended our 2nd Skills Demonstration and shared some of their favorite dishes. Thanks Mr. Chris Law for coming in and showing support to our students.
The Annual Skill Demo was introduced in order to show parents what their children have learned throughout the year. Much like a music recital, or an art exhibit, the demo gives the student a chance to show off their skills (which under normal circumstances) they cannot do anywhere else. Students who won competitions during the year are also honoured by announcing their current titles or medals received.
After the bow-in, recital of the oath and a quick warm up, demo started with Alex, Danayee, Glen and Jay showing their basic fundamental movements, followed by a team pattern (Chonji) by Jared, Christopher, and Hikaru.
Roanna and Edgar, was next and delivered an exciting prearranged sparring.
Kharl was fierce as he demonstrated self-defense against three opponents (including a slow-motion.)
Edgar, Roanna, Rustin and Rinzel performed a high flying overhead kick.
Next, was a team pattern (DoSan by Nicholas, Qishin, Xiang Wei and Sue.
