This past weekend was the 40th National All Martial Arts Championship in Pittsburgh, put on by C.S. Kim Karate and the International Tang Soo Do Federation. I’ve been training for a little over 14 years, holy cow it’s been a long time….. Most of these people I’ve known, and trained with for the past 8-10 years. There’s something about Tang Soo Do, and martial arts in general that really helps you focus, and can truly alter your personality- for the better. The amount of talent that was in the room that day was astounding.
Musical season has come and gone. Through years of working in childcare and in the school systems, I knew quite a few kids, musicians, and directors in shows across the county. And how could I pass up seeing a local school do Peter Pan? This is just a small selection from Western Beaver (Shrek), Ambridge (Peter Pan), and Beaver (The Wiz) high schools’ performances from this 2014 season.
