So Much Has Been Happening...

On Sunday, Oct. 18th, a group of BUGS Students had a great opportunity to see the Shaolin Warriors at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! These Chinese Monks are trained in a special martial art that has been around for hundreds of years. Many of the performers have been training and performing in this artform since they were very young.

There were two young boys who had to be the same age as some of our students performing incredible and eye-popping feats.

They jumped over one another, twisted their bodies into different unimaginable shapes, and turned on poles. It was an amazement to see. They used all kinds of props. They broke slabs of concrete on their bodies with big iron mallets, used their hands to break wood, and even their heads to break metal.

The students were so excited they couldn't believe what they were seeing. Sitting on the edge of their seats, literally, not wanting to miss what was happening. It was just a great experience to have and see!!
