十八拳 – Shíbā Quán with Narcyz Latecki
Mr. Latecki is an accomplished Kung Fu instructor from the neighboring town of Acton. Though our schools practice two different styles of Kung Fu, we share some of our forms, including 八步拳 (Bā Bù Quán, Eight Step Fist) and 十八拳 (Shíbā Quán, Eighteen Fists.) Mr. Latecki will be sharing the second half of the form with us, where the student “defends” against the attacks in Shíbā Quán. This is an intermediate form – it is open to Metrowest Kung Fu students who have finished learning Bok Pai Quan. See Sihing for details.

The form combines movements drawn from the Chen, Yang, Wu, and Sun styles of Tai Chi. The Tai Chi 42 Form contains complex movements, and it is recommended that students have a foundation in Tai Chi and/or martial arts. The event is open to the public. See Sihing Eliot for details.

Kid Pinky and Buen Sazón de la Abuela Petra at ArtsNight Maynard
As a part of March’s ArtsNight Maynard, get the blues with Kid Pinky, a retro-style, four-piece blues band that is both authentic and unique. Lead man Steve Prisby was the founder and leader of The Movers, the 1995 International Blues Band Competition winner in Memphis, TN. Accompanied by three highly talented bluesmen from the New Hampshire area, Kid Pinky is a throwback to the future. While paying homage to blues from the 40s and 50s, as well as New Orleans funk and jazz, they have assimilated their influences to conceive an entirely innovative and original sound. Engaging personalities and comfortable volume levels always make the show FUN, creating an intimacy that feels like a private performance in your own living room…or kwoon. We’ll also be featuring delicious food from Maynard’s upcoming Puerto Rican restaurant, Buen Sazón de la Abuela Petra!
