May-June 1989 Bejing,China Tiananmen Square
A trip planned a year prior.. The first Martial Art team from the US to study and teach in China.
An Honor and a dream come true…..Until
Martial law was declared on May 20. The protesters demanded that the leadership resign, but the government answered on the nights of June 3 and 4 with troops and tanks, killing thousands to quell a "counter-revolutionary rebellion

People running everywhere in panic..Surviving was at the top of the priority list for millions!
We managed to get the last train out before the students closed the train station,late that night after hours of gunfire and ground bombs going off.

I will not finish this now but leave a lasting impression on the viewer.
