Wishing everyone all the best this holiday season!
I attended the Tallahassee Asian Coalition's Annual Asian Festival on Saturday. This is (I believe) the 5th year of the festival. It get's a little bigger and better each year. It was a beautiful fall day and I really enjoyed the food and entertainment. This picture is of a friend of mine who trains with the local Chinese Martial Arts Center.
On the martial arts end of things, there were demos from the chinese martial arts center, shurite karate, filipino martial arts club and the naginata club. One of our students, Carol Strickland, is also a member of the naginata club.

This was from our recent promotion demo where 2 people demonstrated for green belt and 2 people demonstrated for their first stripe. It was a good promotion demo. I say "promotion demo" because, this is how I look at it. People pass and fail tests. Promotion demos, however, are only given to people who are ready. Unlike a test where people have a chance of failing, it is very unlikely anyone would fail a promotion demo, because they don't do it until they are truly ready.
