A Fete Worse Than Death

Tae Kwon Do demo 2
Originally uploaded by CornishRambler.
It's August, there's a threat of showers, it must be time for Penryn town fair. Or, more specifically, my reason for being there, to watch 'im indoors take part in the Tae Kwon Do demonstration. Now this didn't get off to the best of starts, being announced over the tannoy as the Karate demonstration. Ahem. Bit like calling a Canadian an American in the effect *that* produces.

Once the crowd had been moved back to a safe distance ("because we don't want to *kick* you, madam") the demo began, accompanied throughout by a band playing only slightly further up the street who came on exactly as it started - The Sex Slaves From Hell. Certainly added that little extra something! (incidentally, bloody good band, go and see them if they're playing near you).

Still, it all seemed to go quite well - possibly barring the crowd-wincing episode of the four year old girl who didn't have a clue what she was doing and the rather entertaining moment when the demo leader hit himself round the back of the head with his nunchucks...
