Gong Xi Fa Cai

I have been so fascinated with the Wushu Martial Arts. I can't get over how graceful they move yet how deadly their movements seem to be. This morning, on my way to work, I saw some girls doing the wushu sword dance on tv and I remembered how I always wanted to enroll for a wushu class. I know it's typically used for fighting in Chinese TV, but the gracefulness makes it very pleasing to watch as well. I especially love how they can go from one stance to another in an insane amount of speed and grace.

While I still have no money to spare for a wushu class, here's a quick sketch of a girl in a wushu stance with a sword.

Happy Year of the Brown Rat! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
