NOW

DEMO TEAM -


-This is the Champlin ATA Demo Team at a fundraiser for Autism.

The demo team is a group of people consisting of colored and black belts. I cannot say we are the best, for we truly aren't.
But i can say we are good. That is why we are on the team. There are two leaders of the demo team. One is the overseer,
he just watches while we perform, but he teaches us. The other is the performer, he does the act with us. The performer
also learns. Our overseer will come up with something close but different to the previous demo team form. He tries to make
it better every time. After he comes up with it, we learn from him. He will teach some of us then we have to learn from each
other and teach each other. It has been an affective system because the demo team is a family. We are helping each other
and watching each others backs. Everyone on the team trusts others on the team.
We at first were just chosen to be on the team. But now we have to fight for our place on the team we have "auditions" to
see if we can keep our spots. At first is was only 6 of us. After the first round of auditions, we had 12. My brother joined us
after the first round of auditions. I now have someone to practice with at home. I practice at home because the demo team
takes a lot of time effort and determination. It's not easy at all. Our practices can last up to two hours. It seems long but we
only have it once a week.





OFFICIAL -


This is the official Korean Demo Team. If you watch, you know they are much better than we are.
It's not that hard to miss. We try just as hard as they do, though. What's really fun though is
seeing people watching us and actually liking what they see. They are amazing. Going everywhere.
Seeing everything! It's amazing. And one day I hope to shoot that high.
