Join us, Tues Nov 26th at Songbyrd, for our annual anime CAN I KICK IT? film, where this year we’re featuring the late 80’s classic Fist of The North Star.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been destroyed by a nuclear war, the story centers on a warrior named Kenshiro, the successor of a deadly martial art known as Hokuto Shinken, which gives him the ability to kill most adversaries from within through the use of the human body’s secret vital points.
DJ 2-Tone gets things started at 6:30 PM and the movie starts around 7:30. For more info/RSVP click here.
Check out our new CAN I KICK IT? promo video produced by the good people of Kreative 71.
We’re happy to announce that the new date of our CAN I KICK IT? featuring PREDATOR at Creative Alliance will be Thurs. October 10th.
This will be the O.G. version of the late 80’s sci-fi/action classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse “The Body” Ventura.

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.
