We continue to edit the first episode of “The Sifu”, a documentary/reality show showing Kung Fu training and philosophy as a powerful way of transformation. Our first episode featured Bill, a U.S. Army veteran searching for inner peace. The show was filmed at our Highland Park school, as well as other locations such as Chinatown. We look forward to its completion and will host a viewing party at our school. Here are links to the first few minutes of the show and to the show’s Facebook page. Episode Two of “The Sifu” was filmed in late March, and featured Joe, our student and a musician who has struggled to overcome many obstacles in his life. We worked throughout the filming to help him use his Kung Fu for health, inspiration and music. Stay tuned for updates on this unique show as we continue to expand the awesomeness of Kung Fu throughout the world.
