Today we went to the UM Tianjin office where we learned about different sports that students are majoring in. We watched dragon boat racing, four different traditional dance shows, martial arts performance, and badminton competition. Each group of performers were very talented and interesting to watch. They all greeted us with applause as we enter their performance room. The martial arts performance was my favorite. One reason this was my favorite is because the amount of skill, endurance, and different techniques used throughout the performance showed how talented these students are. The performance started off with two lions and their "owner". Each lion was made up of two students. The way these students moved throughout their performance made the lions look very real. The performance had a storyline to it which made it even more interesting to watch. After the lion, there were a group of students that came up holding up a dragon. These students moved very fast intertwining with each other throughout the performance. The next group of performers had swords, and then there were kung fu performers, and some students that performed individually. The entire act overall was very amusing and opened my eyes to different sports that are offered here at this university.
