Turtle Wushu

Turtle Wushu, one might say, is much like Lemon Jousting, only with turtles – little toy turtles that one balances on the top of one of one’s hands, and attempts to knock off of one’s opponents’ hands with one’s other hand, as illustrated above, and explained, in amazingly moving pictures, with sound, below:
