Ringing in the Year of the Rooster, Martial Spirit is a first of its kind martial arts celebration presented by the Chinese Culture Center (CCC) featuring an exhibition at the CCC Visual Art Center, performances and documentation of Bay Area martial arts schools, and community workshops at Ping Yuen public housing in San Francisco Chinatown.
 
Breaking down stereotypes about the mysticism of martial arts prevalent in today’s culture, artist Justin Hoover’s solo exhibition, Martial Spirit, instead explores martial arts as a practice through visual arts.
