    8th World wushu championships

    Anyone know what's going on in Hanoi?

    Is there a site with an itinerary or a commentary......any information at all?
    The only news that I can pick up is that the Brit under 75kg San Shou guy won his first fight.
    LOL.. really, what else did you hear?.. did you hear that he was voted Man of the Year by Kung-Fu Magizine?

    Its all good, keep them coming.

    I am disappointed by the lack of coverage officially to say the least!

    Official coverage

    This *is* our official coverage, Liokault!

    In all seriousness, there's no way we could beat the speed of the almighty web for reporting something like the WWG, especially with some of the team members blogging the trip. I wish some of them had blogged here - - after all, our charitable arm, the Tiger Claw Foundation did sponsor the team and coaches with uniforms. That's gratitude for ya. OK, just kidding. Keep posting those news reports, blogs, etc. here everyone and it's almost as good.

    Actually, Gene, this message board, in the Contemporary Wushu circles, has a reputation for being a bit unfriendly toward Contemporary Wushu and having an "I don't give a d@mn about that stuff..." attitude...so they gravitate towards other sites .

    And don't even get started on the politics aspect or the East vs. West Coast stuff.

    But, I will say that even on the more Contemporary Wushu sites, the coverage has been much less this go round than in the past.
