    2015 Tiger Claw Elite Championships & KUNG FU TAI CHI DAY – Part 2: Form Not Mind, Step Not Heart
    The 2016 Tiger Claw Elite Championships and KUNG FU TAI CHI DAY is scheduled for May 21–22. Next year is the Year of the Monkey, so we will hold a Showcase Division, the Monkey King Championship, open to all proponents of Monkey Style Kung Fu. We are consolidating our event so it will all be held in the South Hall of San Jose McEnery Convention Center. This won’t affect the non-Chinese Championships, only the KungFuMagazine.com Championship. Both the Internal and Showcase Divisions will be held on Sunday. Sunday will also have all of the attractions of KUNG FU TAI CHI DAY, the Masters’ Demonstration and workshops, and it will be free admission for spectators.

    We are also developing another Showcase Division, the 1st Wushu Nandu Championship. Spearheading this are veteran Wushu proponents Emilio Alpanseque and Brandon Sugiyama. Advanced Nandu athletes will compete with ONE Empty Hand Routine (Changquan, Nanquan, Taijiquan) and ONE Short Weapon Routine (Daoshu, Jianshu, Nandao, Taijijjian) for a combined total score that will determine the winner of each division. There will only be four divisions: Men’s 14–17 years or 18+ years and Women’s 14–17 years or 18+ years. This Championship will use the International Wushu Federation IWUF 2005 Rules for judging. As a Showcase Division, the Wushu Nandu Championship is independent of the Modern Wushu Divisions and will have no effect upon the Modern Wushu Grand Champions. This will be held on Saturday, but the other Showcase Championships, the WildAid Tiger Claw Championship, the Monkey King Championship and the Drunken Style Championship (if we find a sponsor) will be held on Sunday.
