JianZi 毽子 !

A popular pastime in parks all over China.

JianZi combines athleticism, balance, coordination and inner calm. It has been played in China since the Han Dynasty (200 BC). The 'shuttlecock' is composed of a number of coin-like metal weights and colored feathers.

The first film is from the People's Park in GuangZhou; the second is at the Long Corridor of the Temple of Heaven in BeiJing. The third film shows some masters at play.
