hey everyone. gonna change gears for a second & talk about something other than fashion & events that i’ve attended the past few weeks. i’m going to showcase the *other* half of me that i don’t talk about very much. for this coming weekend, i’m going to be all kung fu all the time :)**
you see, grandmaster pui chan is coming to boston. what’s a grandmaster? he’s essentially the teacher of my kung fu teacher. all my training, all that i have learned the past almost 20 years really came from him. he’s in town to accompany the new england premiere of his film documentary, pui chan: kung fu pioneer at the boston asian american film festival. the story of his life, what he has endured & achieved will be on the big screen. i’ve seen an early release of it, but now that it’s set to go nationwide, i am *beyond* excited for everyone else outside of my little kung fu world. to watch it! he’s just as agile & acrobatic as anyone you’ve seen in crouching tiger, hidden dragon. his spirit is fearless. he’s even funny & comedic in his own way, like kung fu panda :) he’s truly a real-life hero. he (& my teacher, bob rosen) are the inspiration & reason i have dedicated my life to kung fu as well :)
if you’re interested in joining me in watching this amazing documentary, the BAAFF still has tickets to the sunday screening at 12:30 at the paramount theater as the saturday showing is sold out! watch a sneak peek below. i really can’t wait for members of my kung fu family to be in boston, for us to hang out, work out & see this movie!
