    Today at Boston's City Hall Plaza was a celebration of the independence of the Philippines. My school was a part of the festivities and everyone had a fantastic time!

    After the parade, many folks gathered in a celebration of culture on City Hall Plaza, including a celebration of traditional types dance and music. Our school did a demonstration as well.

    The events started raising of the Pilipino flag, and the singing of both national anthems. We had a short break for some traditional food, and the celebrations began!

    The MAists pictured my teachers, Guros Mike and May Williams of Martial Arts Research Institute in Salem, MA. [​IMG]

    The demos were fairly short. It was very humid outside and we had several performers coming up after us. Mike and May did a demonstration together, May improvised a balisong anyo, and then Mike and one of our senior students did a demonstration as well.

    The demonstrations were a lot of fun, they showed some single and double stick moves and disarms as well as some empty hand principles. The demonstrations usually ended with a takedown, and I think Guro May's takedown of Guro Mike got the largest round of applause [​IMG]
