most things dark and historical by Holly Messinger
Not too shabby!
Thanks for posting this. It's wonderful to see your movement. A few weekends ago, I got caught up in a tae kwon do demonstration in front of the PEM in Salem (I was just about to see the Joseph Cornell exhibit, actually) and I thought of you, though I do realize it's a different style. These folks were really into breaking boards and kicking the snot out of roses and apples stuck on the end of swords. There was a particularly cool demonstration with an apple on a sword where the demonstrator was blindfolded and found his way to the target through use of a bell jingled by one of his cohorts. But really, I found the less flashy combat movements much more satisfying than all the bang and flash and flying rose petals.
Also, pardon the above ramble if I've used incorrect terminology, as I probably have. Big appreciation! Very little knowledge.
No worries, I know what you meant. Glad you enjoyed the video and the live demo. A well-done martial arts demo can be breathtaking, although I'm with you, I like the subtle stuff better than the flash.
