I don't know about videos. Sorry. I don't really do anything for the parking lot sale except post it here. But I'm glad you had a good time!

You f*ckers should move operations to pittsburgh so I can enjoy your sale.

04-10-2007, 09:44 AM
We have had people cross state lines for our parking lot sales here, but crossing the country would be extraordinary. I'm not sure if our TN office does parking lot sales, to be honest. That's as close as we can get to you now. You'll just have to make do...

04-26-2007, 12:11 PM
Just a reminder for you S.F. Bay locals - our parking lot sale is next week. Cinco de Mayo. Bring your own cerveza and pinatas.

Has TC Media stopped doing this? I used to get emails and don't get them anymore. Please say it ain't so! :(

08-15-2007, 11:37 AM
please support tiger claw by buying all their fine products

I actually tried to buy the parking lot (it was a parking lot sale!)

08-15-2007, 04:12 PM
...good for kicking the testicularly-challenged in the crotch.

There's a special place in forum hell for whoever turned lkfmdc on to photoshop. :mad:

kungfuyou, we already did our parking lot sale this year. I don't think we'll do a second one in one year. You'll just have to wait for next year.

08-16-2007, 09:32 AM
Gene, you're usually good with responding quickly, but, this time...

kungfuyou was asking in 2004.

08-16-2007, 09:43 AM
...and kungfuyou ttt'ed this yesterday on the main forum. I merged it with an ongoing thread here on the TC Media forum. It's all good. Just sharpening my stilleto heels for ya, bro. :cool:

Do you have anything in the Houston, Texas area?

04-16-2008, 11:32 AM
...and our HQ is here in Fremont, CA.

04-17-2008, 10:27 PM
Hey Gene,

I can't make it to the Bay Area this year, although I would like to. Good luck with the sale.

I have another question, though this pertains to the online store. There is a promotion going on right now for shoes. About how long is it going to last?

04-18-2008, 09:11 AM
I can't say how long it will last for certain, 冠木侍. I'm not in charge of the online store promotions. Typically, we launch a new promotion every other week, with larger sales running for a month. But that's always subject to change. We schedule for every other week, but we're subject to stock and various trends and such. For example, when Cung Le sanshou-ed Frank Shamrock (http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/ezine/article.php?article=762), we immediately bumped his gear (http://www.martialartsmart.net/cunglegear.html) up.

The web can change in an instant so if you see something you like, buy it now.

I'm told there will be a lot of Chinese weapons and uniforms this time. Get here early!

09-12-2012, 03:45 PM
somebody buy me some stufffff!!!!

09-13-2012, 04:29 PM
Here's what our warehouse floor looks like right now (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151251223029363.521116.135964689362&type=3).

We're offering tons of martial arts stuff at super low prices. Over stock, discontinued items, slightly damaged items, samples. First come, first serve!

09-13-2012, 05:54 PM
Dude, I'm so there. You gonna be hangin' around, Gene?

09-14-2012, 09:06 AM
I'm volunteering to do some beach clean up. Tomorrow is International Coastal Cleanup Day.

Nevertheless, I'm sure you'll see some Tiger Claw friends. Gigi will be in charge of the Chinese weapons sales. There's a lot of slightly damaged pieces - easy fixer-uppers - that are being let go at really low prices. Plus there's a few crazy sample pieces.

Shoot, I better go have a look myself. ;)

Get here early. It can be a bit of a feeding frenzy at first. In the past, people have crossed state lines to get to this. One year, a school owner got here early and bought up almost all the Chinese weapons immediately.

Sweet. That actually sounds both worthwhile and kind of fun (keeping in mind I tend enjoy physical labor). Maybe I'll keep an eye out for it next year. Bummer I won't be seeing ya, though, was going to try and make good on that lunch.

Thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to get there early...glad I'm back in my Fremont studio now. I remember a couple years back getting some decent rattan Escrima sticks for a buck each. And I don't even do Escrima :p

09-14-2012, 05:33 PM
I mentioned to Gigi that you'll probably show up. She's overseeing the Chinese weapons stash. Gigi also dug up an old sample demo uniform that's pink and teal that would be perfect for ya. Just kidding, but if you ask her about it, she might just show it to you and it'll hurt your brain. That's just a shot from me to you, shidi. ;) It's so painfully ugly and it's on the center desk, right in front of me now.

Actually, there's a good stash of decent blades marked way down because of little flaws, like chipped scabbards. There's a lot of stuff. The whole warehouse floor is full of boxes of random gear. This might be one of the biggest Parking Lot sales that Tiger Claw has staged so far, as we recently cleaned out a lot of the warehouse. Hope you score some good bargains!

09-17-2012, 10:00 AM
I posted a few pix that Gigi took of the Sale on our fb (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151251223029363.521116.135964689362&type=1). To everyone who came out - thanks for your support!

09-17-2012, 01:46 PM
:o My weekend got a bit fuzzy, starting with many upended bottles on Friday night and heading through some hiking adventure on Saturday that I don't remember too much of. Didn't make it to the sale. It was probably for the best, though; I'm broke yet easily tempted. I shouldn't be let loose on a large array of low-priced weapons. (Sorry, Gigi!)

Lol looks like I unwittingly parried that one. You were just trying to get me back for failing to protect you from Jack Fu's sneak attack a few months back :p

I am disappointed that I ended up missing the sale. I'll have to make up for it next time.

09-17-2012, 02:39 PM
...no worries. Astonishingly enough, that pink & teal uniform didn't sell. We've saved it for you. Maybe I'll pass it along if we ever hook up that lunch. :p

09-18-2012, 01:48 PM
Good luck with your lunch after that :D

*hums "I'm too sexy"*

09-20-2012, 10:30 AM
I've been trying to come up with some snappy comeback, but I keep defaulting to the mental image of you in this demo uniform...:eek:

It'd make a great Halloween costume for you if you wanted to go as a JCVD in his debut 1984 flick, Monaco Forever (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087739/).

09-20-2012, 02:32 PM
Now you can combine that mental image with this real one:


I know it's not the same flick, but it's not a huge jump to make from "Gay Karate Man" :eek:

09-20-2012, 03:11 PM
Now I've followed JCVD's antics since he began, so I have plenty of horrid mental images burned into my retinas, many more than you. It's just the image of you in that suit that is bothersome, as I know you a lot better than JCVD.

I've got access to JCVD stuff that would scar you. Click if you dare. (http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1140585#post1140585)

You know, this has become yet another thread that has gone entirely the wrong direction. Weren't we talking about getting together for lunch soon? :o Let's get back to that.

09-20-2012, 04:34 PM
I've actually seen that once before, but it really doesn't take the sting out of it :eek: Touche. :D

I've shot a PM back at you, we'll make this lunch thing happen.

HUGE Savings from Tiger Claw (https://www.tigerclaw.com/home.php)! This year is a fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds from the Tiger Claw Parking Lot sale will go towards long-time Tiger Claw client and friend, Sensei Bobby Hernandez, who was recently injured in a motorcycle accident. SEE YOU THERE!

TIGER CLAW (www.tigerclaw.com) PARKING LOT SALE! 10AM-4PM August 25 2018 40740 Encyclopedia Circle, Fremont CA


08-23-2018, 10:49 AM

10AM-4PM August 25 2018 40740 Encyclopedia Circle, Fremont CA.

Note: We got new carpet installed earlier this year, which meant I had to clean up my workspace and bookshelves. I pulled out two huge boxes of samples, mostly books and videos but some odd memorabilia, that I'm donating to the Parking Lot sale this year. These include some really unique items and I'm recommending that they be sold at half off list price. I won't be present at the sale (I never am - its a Tiger Claw (https://www.tigerclaw.com/home.php) thing) but this year, my stuff will be.
