    30 PathLessNess members of various age groups, headed to a 2-day seminar in Ain Aar, which was open to advanced and beginner Wushu practitioners alike. Day 1 was dedicated to warm-ups, light partner exercises, followed by burst exercises in the form of games opposing 4 teams, ended with forms and intensive wushu practice.
    Day 2 started with running, stretching exercises and balances. The different class levels also  created short performances with the wushu coordination movements they have learnt. The group games continued with endurance and burst exercises, with a finale of weirdest performances. After a break it continued with form corrections, jumps and stretching. With a group photo we went home with energetic smiles looking forward to upcoming trainings!
