Oct. 25 was “Fall Fun Day” at North Sky Kung Fu on West 28th Street. After starting the day with a martial arts class, kids and their families joined instructors in an afternoon of play, crafts, music, food and a movie — “Kung Fu Panda,” of course. Parents joined in too, trying their hands at “fighting” with foam swords.
Tucked among plant and flower shops, the school, which opened earlier this year, teaches traditional “Ying Jow Pai” — Eagle Claw — kung fu, one of the richest Northern Shaolin martial arts styles.
