Last Sunday I stopped by the Bullwhip Study Group that’s held at the Seattle Wushu Center for about 15 minutes on my way to a show. While I was there they were trying to use a whip to flick a piece of paper in the air, the hit it again as it fell. Here’s Gary and Restita working on it:
I managed to do this, but of course since I was recording with my camera I didn’t record myself doing it (I know I should have had someone else hold the camera).
After I left they were working on grabbing a water bottle:
The Bullwhip Study Group is every 3rd Sunday at the Seattle Wushu Center. They are a great group and if you are in the Seattle area they are worth a visit! For more info visit: http://seattlewushucenter.com
One of the cool things about living in the Seattle area is there is a ton of cool things happening around the city. For example the Seattle Wushu Center has a once a month Bullwhip Study Group. That’s right it’s a group that meets up and cracks bullwhips.
The Bullwhip Study group is run by Restita who has one of the coolest names ever and is super friendly! Here she is teaching a whip crack combination:
I cracked whips with them over the summer and had a great time. The Bullwhip Study Group is open to all levels of whips crackers from beginners to advanced whip crackers. The day I came there were several people that had never cracked whips before…and they have loaner whips to learn on! So if you’ve always wanted to learn to crack a whip contact the Restita, for details visit: http://seattlewushucenter.com/FREEmonthlyevents.aspx
