You’ve seen Jet Li do it in movies—now watch international champions Philip Wong and Zhang Hong Mei lead members of their martial arts school Pacific Wushu in an electrifying jaw-dropping performance of fierce fighting infused with complex movements, speed, and artistic expression. View our summer exhibition Power & Glory: Court Arts of China’s Ming Dynasty, jump on guided gallery tours of Asian weaponry, make a rank badge or brush painting, tune in to a talk on shaolin martial arts, drop in on a tai chi demonstration (or try it yourself), sip on a cocktail with friends, and “kick it” with DJ Phatrick (of APEX Express and Native Guns) who’ll be spinning a fresh mix of hip hop, funk, and soul.
MATCHA: Drunken Fist
Thursday, August 7, 5:00-9:00 pm
Asian Art Museum
