World champion, master of Chinese kungfu and longtime NIS friend “Mr. Tiger” visited our school to help teach Grade 8 students in Drama about stage combat. The class is made up of groups studying different styles of theatre from around the world, including Beijing Opera, Italian Commedia Dell'arte, and Japanese Kabuki. This study is not only an opportunity to develop creative thinking and international mindedness in our students, but also dynamic personal expression.
Mr. Tiger, a student of the world-renowned Shaolin Temple and a member of the Shaolin Wushu Academy’s performing troupe has pursued an acting career in Taiwan and has a specialty in the 18 weapons of Shaolin Kungfu, long-fist, boxing, Mantis style, Drunken style, sword and knife forms, Chen-style taichi, and many others.
