Thanks to everyone who’s been watching and supporting, we’ve got some great momentum and are looking forward to our next CAN I KICK IT? LIVE STREAM which will be next Thurs. Apr. 30th, where we’ll be featuring the iconic Mystery of Chessboxing.
Mystery of Chessboxing found it’s way into hip-hop lure because it’s where Ghostface of Wu-Tang Clan gets his name and the title of the movie is also the name of a famed Wu-Tang track.
We start the film at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST and for more info click here.
As we continue to deal with and adapt to a new, yet temporary, day-to-day, we’ve been exploring and, after some lengthy trouble-shooting, found a way to live stream CAN I KICK IT? that we’re calling CAN I KICK IT? LIVE STREAM.
CAN I KICK IT? LIVE STREAM will bring our unique movie watching experience to you at home and beyond, which you can view at http://www.shaolinjazz.com.
That being said, join us next Saturday April 4th as we bring you the 1970’s classic “The Street Fighter” starring the iconic Sonny Chiba.
If you haven’t been to CAN I KICK IT? in a minute you DO NOT want to miss this one: “The Black Dragon’s Revenge” starring the iconic Ron Van Clief.
Ron Van Clief is, hands down, one of the iLLEST and this movie is the proof.
Join us Tues Feb 25th at Songbyrd Music House. Music starts at 6:30 PM and the Film at 7:30 PM.

Our two days in Denver, Co. conducting CAN I KICK IT? has, unquestionably, been our best trip to date.
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) took more than good care of us before, during, and after both events; the city of Denver, especially downtown, which is where we stayed and conducted our performances, is world class; and the people are amazingly down-to-earth and their interest in new things is undeniable, which ultimately resulted in us achieving two sold out shows.
Thank you to the DCPA for bringing us out, props to everyone who spread the word about our events, and much respect to everyone who attended both nights. The love is much appreciated.
CAN I KICK IT? returns, next Thurs. Nov. 21st, to Creative Alliance (Baltimore) for another exciting night of Hip Hop, Martial Arts, Rare Grooves and more as we screen Bruce Lee’s legendary film Enter The Dragon.
We start the movie at 7 PM, tickets are $12 for general admission and $9 for members (+$3 at the door).

As our first CAN I KICK IT?, featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, outside of the U.S. – Vancouver definitely “got it” and the good-times ensued. The location, which was an historic outdoor plaza called Van Art Gallery North Plaza, felt like home with it being similar to Freedom Plaza (back in D.C.), with its smooth stone surfaces, ledges, and steps, which was also home to the city’s skateboarders. Insert some great food trucks and popcorn and we were ready to go!
In addition to the movie, scores of attendees, both young and old, enjoyed our makers-station where you could create your piece of art using a stencil (turntable, ninja, boom-box, or Bruce Lee) and spray paint. We love employing the makers-station whenever possible so people can participate in the event and have a meaningful and tangible memory of our experience.
And what’s a CAN I KICK IT? event without live demos, so the DVBIA brought in Shape Shifter Studio who not only conducted BBoy workshops, which got the crowd dancing, but also excited the audience with amazing BBoy exhibitions. We, in-turn, reached out to Lions MMA who sent two of their most celebrated members Kia and Sean who rocked attendees with a spirited power-driven demo.
Thank you to the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association for bringing us out, props to both Shape Shifter Studio and Lions MMA for conducting the workshops and exhibitions, and salute to everyone who attended, especially those who’ve been longtime SHAOLIN JAZZ supporters.
