We're launching a new showcase division at TCKFMCIII - the Songshan Shaolin Champion.
The details are still in development, but here's what we have so far:
The Songshan Shaolin Champion title is open to anyone competing with a classic form currently practiced at the original Shaolin Temple in Songshan. This includes (but is not limited to) empty-hand forms such as Xiaohongquan, Dahongquan, Luohanquan, Qixingquan and Taizu Changquan, as well weapon forms such as Yinshougun, Meihuadao, Tamojian, and so on. Competitors will be judged by a panel of Songshan Shaolin experts from different schools. In the event of a tie, competitors will face off with different Songshan Shaolin forms until a winner is determined.
All Songshan Shaolin Champion entries will receive a special Shaolin-oriented gift bag. The winner will receive a Shaolin-oriented prize which includes being featured in a showcase article in the next Shaolin Special issue of Kung Fu Tai Chi.
