    It's always nice to hear of forum members connecting.

    Anyone else joining Kisu & me tomorrow at CMAT25?

    Sorry I've been so quiet here this week. I've been super busy with a special project which I'll share more about later, or with anyone I see over the course of this weekend.

    Lokhopkuen & I got challenged. srsly. By the same dude.

    Such things happen at martial arts gatherings. But in such cases, what happens there, stays there. If you were there, you probably know. If not, well, maybe we'll share if you ply us with drinks (or nachos).

    Pix coming (but not of the challenge).

    C'mon, Gene! It's not fair to leave the story hanging! How about I 'will' nachos to come your way?

    I know. I'm a tease.

    ConfuseUs seh "never reveal secrets on the promise of nachos"

    Sometimes, you just got to be present at the tournaments to see stuff go down. Even forms tournaments elicit fights outside the rings, in the hallways.

    Meanwhile, I've started posting pix on our facebook site. See our new facebook album: 25th Annual Chinese Martial Arts Tournament.

    May the Universe bless my temper🤦*♂️ I was about to kick a hole in that moron but then I looked over at 60 + witnesses ha ha ha! I've gotten older and I imagine a little wiser. Cash me outside habadao😉🤣🙀
    It was great to see you brother Gene. I had such a great time in San Francisco!! I saw so many of my kung fu brothers.

    The Denver Kung Fu scene is really small and everyone knows well everyone lol. For those of you that have never met brother Bawang, he's really cool people and a true badass. Bawang we need to go and eat some more tasty foods my friend 😁

    It's CMAT time again. Roll call?

    Hope to see some of you there this weekend.

    They've added some Songshan Shaolin divisions, similar to what we started last year with the Songshan Shaolin division at the Tiger Claw Elite KungFuMagazine.com Championship - Event #204 (Shaolin Tongbi Fist), Event #205 (Shaolin Dahong Fist), Event #206 (Shaolin Luohan Fist), Event #222 (Shaolin Short Weapon), and Event #242 (Shaolin Long Weapon). Perhaps this is in honor of Songshan Shaolin Day this Thursday?
