Lion Dances into Maine

After a couple of short and uneventful flights, Grandmaster Chin and Sifu Heintzman landed safely in Portland ME to a warm reception from Senseis Eric and Lisa Magiera. They are hosting GM Chin and Sifu Heintzman for a seminar on traditional southern Chinese Lion Dance. The lion dance is used to showcase the strength of a schools stance work and techniques. It is also used to cleanse spaces of evil spirits and to bring good luck in the new year. The weekend is off to a great start with lunch at Saeng Thai House in downtown Portland. Eat your heart out food fans.
