Sil-Lum Kung-Fu Sparring. I can remember the first time I ever sparred. It was in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu class, back in 2002. I didn't know what it meant or what it entailed until I was watching it between two other students before I was called out to step on the mat. Martial Art Flashback.
Breaking Boards. The first time I broke a board I believe I was a green belt in Tae Kwon Do. I was at a seminar, in which taught how to break boards for those students who were up for testing for their brown belts. Martial Art Flashback.
Working With Weapons, The Staff. The very first weapon I ever held in my hands was a staff, which is a long wooden bamboo stick in which you do forms with and also spar with in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu. Martial Art Flashback.
How I Got Into Martial Arts. One of my bosses I worked with at my undergraduate school got me into martial arts. He said that he thought I would like it. I started in 2002 in Boone, N.C., at the Blue Ridge Kung-fu Arnis Academy. Martial Art Flashback.
