If you decide to watch the performance try to get a seat on the ground floor. I went immediately to the second floor thinking the viewing would be better but I think it was a lot worse due to the low hanging ceiling. The performance...More

This is serious. To see 40.000 of kung fu, teakwondo and other martial arts practisioners in place, is not easy elsewhere in the world. These kids get up 5.00 every morning and practise till late evening.
