 Sensei Adam Rector spent 10 days in China last summer with the team from the UCLA.

They were participating in the Silk Road to the Future program with a theme of Martial Arts and World Peace. Adam and several others from the University of California martial arts program, headed up by Paul McCarthy, got to observe demonstrations from the top Wu Shu performers in Beijing and the top Kung Fu monks at the Shaolin temple as well as demonstrate their martial arts skills to the Chinese.
