Nunchucks and Chinese New Year celebrations at South Learning Centre eBook Club

The South Learning Centre eBook Club were totally inspired by staff member Yang Song. His knowledge, skill and expertise of Chinese New Year, Martial Arts and nunchucks had the children mesmerised.

He explained the harmony between control, the body and skill to ensure that the nunchucks were used for meditation and self discipline rather than weaponry and combat.

Each child made their own nunchucks and learned some difficult coordination skills. Together Yang and the children performed in front of a library audience full of parents, staff and other library customers.
