They are adding new divisions for Wing Chun and Tai Chi Push Hands. They are planning separate Grand Champions for modern wushu and traditional kung fu to encourage more traditional competitors. As we are cooperating with Tiger Claw and Shark City Nationals again, this tournament will showcase both Chinese Martial Arts and Karate. They will be separating the Grand Champions for these arts this year instead of combining them. Chinese style competitors will be able to compete with the Karate competitors and in their new WildAid Tiger Champion division. This special division promotes WildAid’s campaign to save wild tigers

    Shark City Nationals is part of the Bay Area Sport Karate Association (BASKA) and is promoted by Tony and Theresa Kattengell. This historic cooperative event offers Cash Awards, Custom Grand Champion Trophies, Special First Time Competitors Divisions and of course magazine coverage.

    Tiger Claw’s KungFuMagazine.com Championship will return to the luxurious San Jose McEnery Convention Center, in the heart of downtown San Jose, California. The Convention Center is Silicon Valley’s premiere venue for such events, large enough to accommodate a Karate tournament alongside a Chinese martial arts tournament, and is within walking distance of hotels, restaurants, bars, theaters and shopping, all the best that San Jose has to offer!

    Wushu competition to enhance ties in Asia Pacific

    Saturday, February 7th, 2009

    EXPONENTS from three wushu academies in the Asia-Pacific region gathered for the inaugural HYJ Academy of Wushu Competition at the Sports Arena in Wisma OCM, Kuala Lumpur recently.

    The exponents, from HYJ Academy of Wushu of Singapore, HYJ Academy of Tai Ji and Wushu of Australia and HYJ Academy of Wushu of Malaysia, took part in a variety of categories during the one-day competition that was held in the spirit of fostering ties. The categories included changquan, traditional quanshu, nanquan, daoshu, jianshu, nandao, 42-style taijiquan and gunshu.

    HYJ Academy of Wushu of Malaysia’s Woo Chee Heong said the theme of the competition was “For Wushu We Gather, In Wushu We Pride”.

    “Besides the competition, we also had a dinner to mark the third anniversary of our academy, and a joint training session.

    “Competition alone will not benefit the students as much as training together with one another,” he said.

    The activities were in line with the objectives of the event, which included raising the level of wushu among the members, promoting the art of Chinese wushu and upholding the spirit of HYJ founder Huo Yuan Jia.

    During the training session, a dance performance incorporating hip-hop and kung fu moves was choreographed.

    “About 80 students from the three academies spent an hour practising the dance, and they performed it at the opening ceremony of the competition,” Woo said.

    Currently, HYJ Academy of Wushu of Malaysia conducts wushu lessons at five education institutions in Selangor.

    “The younger generation admires Western culture and forgets their roots,” Woo lamented.

    Interesting moves: The contestants, dressed in Chinese costume, demonstrating the moves of the 42-style taijijian.

    “I have conducted classes in Western countries before and the students there had so much passion for wushu. Their positive attitude was commendable while the students here sometimes lack enthusiasm. Learning wushu trains one to be disciplined,” Woo said.

    Azrul Shahrif Ibrahim, a student of Multimedia University in Cyberjaya, took part in the traditional long weapon category in the competition.

    “A roommate encouraged me to take up wushu. That was three years ago. I liked it a lot and my fellow students are receptive to us learning wushu,” said the second-year IT student.

    In 2006, Azrul bagged a gold medal in an inter-varsity wushu tournament in Kelantan.

    To him, learning wushu is more than just mastering a few Jackie Chan moves.

    “I know more about Chinese culture now, as I always get invited to participate in the festive events organised by the wushu club,” the 25-year-old said.

    6th National Farmers’ Meeting comes to an end. This evening the curtain is about to fall on the 6th National Farmers’ Sports Meet in Quanzhou. Hunan athletes have made a superb athletic performance, harvesting 13 gold medals, 9 silver medals and 4 bronze medals and outnumbering the 12 gold medals for last one.

    Peng Xiuqi, Secretary of Delegation of Farmers’ Meet of Hunan, told the reporter that Hunan athletes did an excellent job, manifesting a perfect sportsmanship as well as the spiritual style of farmers, and achieved double harvests in competition results and spiritual civilization.

    84 Hunan athletes took part in 9 fields of matches on this meeting, including field and track, swimming, wushu, dragon boat paddling, dragon dance, lion dance, fishing, Chinese chess and body-building yangge.

    Lion and dragon dancing team got a lion share in this big victory with 5 gold medals and 4 silver medals in their pocket, including 2 most valuable all-round champions, which represents that our team has become one of the best in China. Despite of the fact that this was their first time to participate in this game, the dragon boat paddling team from Changde also got a good result, winning 2 gold and 1 silver. 23-year-old player Liu Qunli won three gold medals in the three matches she attended, and 18 year-old Liu Shan from Xinhua exhibited an amazing performance in wushu, capturing the most valuable all-round Woman’s Champion in self-selecting long boxing, which is also the first won all-round gold medal in this field.
