    2014 Legends of Kung Fu Tournament, July 18 - 20, Dallas WHO BE IN?

    I know it's early, but now that LOKF is back in Dallas and not 8 hours away from me in unholy Houston, I'm going to try to get down there and see what's up! Who be in?

    You didn't like Houston?

    I think Dallas has better attendance. Right now everything is MMA and Tae kwon do
    in Houston. Kung fu is sort of a sleepy community at the moment

    Tae Kwon Do has a heavy presence in the DFW area as well, especially up north. It's been a while since I've been to a tournament, but I would have expected to see more responses to this question by now. Nevertheless, I still plan to attend.
    Best Wishes!

    I'm in

    Sifu Jimmy Wong was kind enough to officially invite me again. It's been a few years since I've been out in the great state of Texas. I anticipate nachos grandisimos.

    Houston is 8 hours from me. Dallas is 3.

    I will be in attendance. A couple of years ago, I organized a meet up Friday night for KFM folks. Sadly this year, I am working Friday night DJing at a bar in Dallas. But I hope to meet some more folks from KFM Sat. and Sun. I think I am judging this year instead of competing. Haven't gotten confirmation on that yet though. If not I will definitely be spectating.

    If you see a guy that looks like my profile pic and wearing a black Shaolin Wu Yi Institute t-shirt. Just yell, "hey Al"

    Where you DJing at?

    Is it near the venue at all? The Masters' Demo is on Friday night now too, but maybe the afterparty needs to be wherever you are DJing, xcakid.

    Nah, its actually about 25+ miles from the venue. It's a very nice patio bar though. If anyone is wanting to make the trek, here's the website with the addrs. http://www.theivytavern.com/
    C'mon down. I'll buy the 1st round. I am there 9:30PM to 1:30AM.

    1st round did you say?

    Well, we'll see if I can hitch a ride that far. I fly in just in time for the Masters' Demo - might even be late if there are any travel delays - and then I'll take it from there.

    Well, my daughter has a soccer tournament in OKC on Saturday, so I'm probably out.
