    Strong possibility I will be in attendance. Not sure if I will be competing though.
    Master of Shaolin I-Ching Bu Ti, GunGoPow and I Hung Wei Lo styles.

    I am seeking sparring partner. Any level. Looking for blondes or redhead. 5'2" to 5'9". Between 115-135 weight class. Females between 17-30 only need apply. Will extensively work on grappling.

    Hope you can make it xcakid

    Shamefully, I won't be able to return your kind TX hospitality (nachos at a breastaurent) because I'll be running around trying to get all the martial ducks in a row. But I will be able to tip you off to any afterparties or adjacent happenings. You should consider competing in the traditional divisions. We're hoping to improve our attendance in those this year. Hope to see you.

    There's been a few updates to the site - mostly archived stuff from last year's event. Check it out.

    Don't worry about, if I do make it up, I will be busy visiting high school and college friends. If the budget allows, I do want to compete. Will be nice to get the cobwebs out before Taiji Legacy.

    If you are coming down for Taiji Legacy, let me know.

    Of course I'll be at Taiji Legacy...

    ...I mean Kung Fu Legends.

    There's been a few updates on our site about TCKFMCII. Check it out.

    I'm pleased to announce the WildAid Tiger Champion, a special showcase division to raise awareness about the plight of wild tigers. We are working with the Tiger Claw Foundation and WildAid in this effort.

    Thanks for your help, Benny!

    I just posted a baker's dozen of more pics by Kunyu Ching and Dean Royal. I've got hundreds more and I haven't even got to our regular staff photographers. I'll post more whenever I get a moment.

    Here's a nice one of Benny Meng and the Wing Chun division.
