Have you ever wished you could bring your favorite movie to life? Well some local karate students brought the new movie Kung Fu Panda 3 to life over the weekend.
This past Saturday in the morning, students from the Rising Sun Martial Arts studio in Newport held karate demonstrations at the Claremont Cinema.
Rising Sun Martial Arts owner Kyoshi Brent Baker rented the theater for a private showing of Kung Fu Panda 3 for high school students, their families, and friends.
Over 200 hundred guests came and watched students spar with each other, demonstrate different karate moves and techniques, as well as break boards with their bare hands and feet.
And after all this? They watched the movie of course, to see pandas doing the same thing. Movie goers at the private screening also had the opportunity to try the moves for themselves and break boards with their hands.
As a bonus during the movie, free tee shirts and a movie poster were given away.
