Wushu and the Film Festival

Actually, wushu doesn't have any connection to this year's Asian Film Festival.......but since this week the YMCA has been closed for spring cleaning I wanted to do Taiji and Wushu  in the Japantown Peace Plaza............found out that I couldn't because of the Film Festival and the Cherry Blossom Festival were using the Plaza.  So, we got stuck practicing on the side of the YMCA...........it was so cold and windy there that even the qigong could not get your hands warm!!  Later, I moved us closer to the Parking Lot ....Read more
