The Year of the Earth Dog

Photos from the Academy's 2018 Chinese New Year celebration!
This year, rather than hold a banquet at a restaurant, we converted our main practice studio into party central for Chinese New Year (3/16/18): 
the "Year of the Earth Dog".
We were
so happy that Master and Mrs. Zhang were able to join us.
Our teacher for the past 28 years, Master Zhang
, now past 90, is still perfectly capable of giving us a stern lecture (see second to last photo).
Master Zhang no longer teaches publicly, but this past year he passed his old school banner on to us (see last photo) with the injunction to carry on his teaching. We'll do our best, sifu!
