ABOUT GUND KWOK: Traditionally, because lion and dragon dance require discipline, skill and mastery and represent a symbol of power, courage and justice, it was previously denied to women. The Gund Kwok Asian Women Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe was created to achieve the following goals:
+ To give Asian women the opportunity to learn and perform a traditional Chinese martial art form that has not been performed by women.
+ To challenge women to realize their physical potential and achieve excellence in a supportive environment.
+ To empower Asian women to break through traditional stereotypes and limited roles.
+ To build teamwork cooperation among Asian women from diverse communities.
+ To contribute back to the community by donating surplus funds to projects that focus on empowering Asian women and girls.
