Dragon Style London Event 2013
Our instructor Linda recently attended the London Dragon Style Athletic Association's Moon Festival Gala event in the UK on 8th September 2013.
Attended by Dragon Style elders from Hong Kong, including the Hong Kong Dragon Sign Athletic Association's Chairman and Vice President, the London Association hosted over 10 kung fu schools from around the UK and Ireland in London's Chinatown for a very successful event.
Aimed at promoting the preservation of traditional Chinese Kung Fu, the event had fantastic displays of traditional lion and unicorn dance greetings, kung fu demonstrations and lucky raffle prizes! Dragon Style greeted each and every guest individually with their respective lions, providing an amazing sight not ever seen in the streets of London.
After the lion dance greetings were finished, the host kicked off the night with impressive displays of Dragon Style Kung Fu forms and weapons demonstrations. Each guest school then also demonstrated their kung fu, with Bak Mei, Hung Fut, Wing Chun, Southern Shaolin, Choy Lee Fut and Ng Jo Kune showcasing their kung fu styles.
It was a rare honour to attend this event with many kung fu masters displaying passion and energy to promote and preserve traditional Chinese kung fu for future generations to come.
