CMOM's Kid's Malco
Saturday, May 30, 2009
12 noon
Join us in saying "zài jiàn" ("goodbye") to CMOM's latest traveling exhibit--Children of Hangzhou--with a super special performance by members of one of Memphis's own Wushu teams!
So what exactly is Wushu, you ask? Wushu is both an exhibition and a full-contact sport derived from traditional Chinese martial arts. Think high jumps, kicks, punches--Jet Li style! It's an incredibly beautiful--and exciting!!--event to watch. You definitely don't want to miss this!
And don't forget to take advantage of visiting the "Children of Hangzhou" exhibit while you still can--it's only here until the end of May!
