This past week, students in Edison's Chinese classes learned martial arts from Master Wang Tao.  Hailing from Dallas, but originally from Sichuan, China, Master Wang spent two full school days with the students, teaching them the fundamentals of martial arts, from stretching to physical conditioning.  

Through this activity, students gained a greater respect for and understanding of Chinese culture.  Martial Arts also serves as great exercise, and gives one more self-confidence in not just the physical realm but in one's life in general.  Master Wang's visit was made possible by a grant from the Confucius Institute.  For more information about the visit, contact Edison's Chinese teacher, Randy Baum, at randall.baum@mpls.k12.mn.us
