CAN I KICK IT? / feat Tai Chi Master / Recap

Our second CAN I KICK IT? screening in NYC proved to be just as special as our first (the week prior) despite the unfortunate blackout that occurred in Midtown Manhattan, which eliminated power from nearby buildings, trains, even Times Square.

We’re fortunate and happy to provide our unique experience for those who made it and we’re hopeful that those who were en-route (as well as those who attended) made it home safely.

Despite the power-loss a good time was definitely had as we blessed the crowd with Tai Chi Master (starring Jet Li) – the surprise film for the New York Asian Film Festival’s “Secret Screening” event, which closed out the festival’s programming.

Thank you to the NYAFF for bringing us out and we appreciated all of your hospitality and thank you to everyone who attended and helped to spread the word.  To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry

Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat Romeo Must Die / Recap

We’re halfway thru our outdoor series and its great to see how, each week, the crowds continue to grow, in addition to how diverse the crowds are from literally every category of demographic.  Age, sex, ethnicity, religion, etc…these events are a testament to how art, not to mention a good time, can bring people together, from all walks of life.

Thank you to everyone who attended (including those who participated in the 90’s costume contest), thanks to DJ Miss H.E.R for setting the tone, and shouts to our media partners.

We look forward to seeing everyone next Tues. July 10 for Jean Claude Van-Damme’s breakout movie Bloodsport.

Rap is A Martial Art – Philippe Prosper

“Hip-hop has a real focus on authenticity, but I hadn’t seen the authentic martial arts combined with hip-hop. As a martial artist coming into hip-hop, I really felt like I was embodying the mantra of rap is a martial art.” – Philippe Prosper
