Disney’s Martial Arts Festival: Day 2

The second day of the festival was just as packed with events as the first day. There was the Tiger Claw elite grand championship at the main stage, which drew a big crowd.


I can still feel the energy from these kids when viewing the pictures. Scary huh?

The Olympic style Tae Kwon Do sparring was also enjoyable to see. I did notice lots of coaches get annoyed about the rules. The biggest one seemed to be stepping out of the ring and getting points deducted for it. I was amused that when people score points, many scream out for joy with their hands up. And because not everyone stops right away, I saw a few people get hit in the face and their mouth guard go flying. I can imagine that its a very bad habit, and I don’t know the reasoning behind it. Maybe someone can educate me.

At night was the showcase event. Lots of martial arts styles were represented, giving awesome performances.
