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.
We’re pleased to announce that this Wed. Aug. 7th we’re finally bringing CAN I KICK IT? to international waters and will be conducting a special edition of it in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) as apart of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association’s Summer Movie Nights programming.
The featured film will be the live action 2014 version of the 90’s cartoon classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with the screening taking place at the Van Art Gallery North Plaza.
DJ 2-Tone will set the vibe at 7 PM, followed up by Bboy workshops and exhibitions by Shape Shifter Studio, and a martial arts demo by Lion MMA around 8:30 PM. The movie will start around 8:40 PM.

Our CAN I KICK IT? screening of Captain Marvel shaped up to be the highest attended film in the history of the DowntownDC Summer Flicks series. The evening also included vibe-setting opening DJ sets by DJ Miss H.E.R and Cleveland Browne, an activation by JUMP Bikes – who brought their signature bikes and scooters for people to demo, and a hugely dynamic martial arts demonstration from our friend Philippe Prosper and his brother James Whitley, who performed using weapons and hand-to-hand styles.
We hope to see you next Tues, July 16th, for Avengers Infinity War, which is the final movie in our series, and for the full recap from Tues click Read the rest of this entry
