Chautauqua Nexus at ULM to discuss Karate

On Friday, Feb. 28th, 2002, the Chautauqua Nexus will talk about "Karate: Reality vs. Hollywood." Karate instructor Bob Allen will be the featured speaker. Allen will discuss how traditional karate is a marshal art that most Americans know little, if anything, about. In his presentation, Allen will explore and contrast Hollywood versions of karate with "real," more traditional karate. He will also give an audio-visual presentation, as well as hands-on presentation with traditional dress, equipment, and movements.

These weekly meetings are informal conversations attempting to connect people of all ages who are interested in intellectual and cultural exchanges. The Chautuaqua Nexus meets every week on the second floor of the Student Union Building on the ULM campus (unless otherwise noted) beginning at 4:30 on Fridays or Saturdays. There are no requirements and everyone is invited to come. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Visitors are welcome to make a small donation for refreshments.
