Keep Austin Playing! truly showed that martial arts is for everyone. The crowd was huge and very diverse, and they LOVED participating in the Bell Sport Karate booth activities and watching the Fight Team spar and perform katas. We heard lots of “oohs” and “aahs.” The Fight Team members did a great job of interacting with the crowd and teaching them bo strikes and how to break boards. RJ DeLaRosa was our MVP–he worked the entire event and probably did his forms at least 50 times!
Not only did the crowd love the activities, but dozens of them entered our drawing for 3 months of free classes. In fact, there were so many that I will be drawing 2 names instead of just one. I will announce the winners in the next few days, so watch this space.
Some favorite moments:
The tiny little guy, who, when invited to kick the kicking shield, gently gave it a kiss. I guess he misheard me, but it was such a sweet and funny moment.
Teaching Miss Austin Texas USA, Thekla McCarty, and Miss Austin Texas Teen USA, Victoria Garcia how to break boards. They left their own booth to visit us, and were very enthusiastic.
Thanks to Chris Irwin and Spice of Life for the opportunity to participate in Keep Austin Playing! 2016. We will definitely be back next year.
The Bell Sport Karate Fight Team tomorrow will be at the Keep Austin Playing! Expo at Palmer Events Center.
The event is lots of fun and is open to the public 4:30-7pm on Thursday, July 14, 2016.
Admission is free, and there are drawings for door prizes, including 3 free months of tuition at Bell Sport Karate!
