Athletes being interviewed by CBC
So many great things are happening for our team as we head into mid-August! We've now raised over $25,000 and are excited at the prospects of the coming weekend where we are hosting a $10,000 Shaolin Team Canada Challenge. For those in Toronto this weekend, August 18 and 19th, come by and find our booth at the Chinatown Festival.
Also, tomorrow night, we are featured in the CBC local Toronto news (a major TV station in Canada) at 6pm EST, Friday, August 17th. They came yesterday and interviewed our children and adult athletes, and took some video of how our team in training.
We showed them some of our traditional Shaolin forms featuring some children and family! Also head coach Dao Shi demonstrated internal qigong iron bar, in which he broke two stacked iron bars with his head. All caught in slow motion!
Tune in to watch it live! We'll post another report in a few weeks with an update on all these great events!
