Spontaneous Demo at the Multi-Cultural

The City of Kitchener held its annual Multi-Cultural Festival on June 20 & 21st, last weekend. Check it out here – it’s a great event!

A small group of Atado Black Belts took it upon them to venture out with a pile of new flyers, command a nicely located staging ground and go about showing “the world” what Shaolin are made off.

We generated a nice amount of interest and people were actually asking for our flyers. We are looking forward for seeing a few new faces in the club soon!

Thanks to Karen, Justin, Nicolas and Gavin we had a good time, got people a taste of true Shaolin Kung Fu and had some interesting discussions with passerby’s and many of the other participants.

Thanks also to Edison who we met walking around the festival with his weapons tied on his back and flyers in his pocket. I hope he didn’t get pulled over…

Thanks to my “good” planning we had neither water, nor food nor sunscreen nor enough money nor did we get a really nice picture to show. I only caught Justin after he had finished his form while Nicolas was hiding behind the lantern post. Better luck next time!

Anyhow, this festival is a great venture for us to meet new people, get our name out and show our skills. Next year we will try to get the booth right next to the staging ground we occupied this time. It was a perfect spot!

Our Perfect Spot for a Demo - Hopefully we can get this booth next year!

Thanks to all who helped and came out.

I promised cookies and I brought them – come to the club, you may be lucky and get some leftovers!
