    The Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum Championship

    NEW for 2018 at the Tiger Claw Elite Championships: The Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum Championship!



    This special showcase division is exclusively for practitioners of the Ku Yu-Cheung lineage of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu. More details to come.

    This is distinctly different from our previous Songshan Shaolin Champion (more to come on this soon too). For more information, read my archival article Bak Sil Lum vs. Shaolin Temple.

    Update

    KU YU-CHEUNG BAK SIL LUM CHAMPION (顧汝章 北少林拳(不分級))

    The KU YU-CHEUNG BAK SIL LUM Champion is a specific lineage of Northern Shaolin from Grandmaster Ku Yu-Cheung of Guangdong. Competitors in this division must be able to provide their lineage linking them to Grandmaster Ku. The winner will receive custom trophy and spotlight in Kung Fu Tai Chi magazine. The KU YU-CHEUNG BAK SIL LUM Champion serves the ongoing community of Bak Sil Lum schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as the longstanding community worldwide.

    The Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum Champion is restricted exclusively to the 10 Hand Forms practiced by the Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum lineage, specifically 1. Koy Moon (開門), 2. Leng Low (領路), 3. Jow Mah (座馬), 4. Chum Sam (穿心), 5. Mo I (武藝), 6. Tun Da (短打), 7. Moi Fah (梅花), 8. Bot Bo (拔步), 9. Lien Wan (連環), 10. Sik Fot (式法). One winner will be declared as the 2018 KU YU-CHEUNG BAK SIL LUM Champion. Second and third place competitors will receive a silver and bronze medal respectfully. If a potential competitor isn’t sure if their form meets the qualifications of the 2018 KU YU-CHEUNG BAK SIL LUM Champion, it is probably that it does NOT, however, email Gene@KungFuMagazine.com for a ruling.

    BAK SIL LUM Champion competitors will adhere to the GENERAL CHINESE DIVISION RULES for Advanced Traditional Kung Fu. The judging panel will consist of 5-7 judges familiar with Ku Yu-Cheung’s system of Bak Sil Lum. The highest and lowest scores will be discarded. Competitors will be judged on a scale of 1-10.

    Any form descended from Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum (Northern Shaolin) may still compete under the Traditional Kung Fu Division. Unlike the Songshan Shaolin Division, the Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum Champion is a Showcase Champion, which is independent from the different divisions and the Division and Overall Grands

    Serving as Judges are three leading exponents of Ku Yu-Cheung Bak Sil Lum: Sifu Kenneth Hui, Sifu Robert Louie and Sifu Ted Mancuso.

    The Champion will be awarded a placarded commemorative Five Tiger Sword (http://www.martialartsmart.com/45s-58.html) plus Five Books from Plum Publishing (plumpub.com): T'ai Chi Ch'uan by Gu Ru Zhang and four on Bak Sil Lum autographed by author Sifu Ted Mancuso: Staff: The Kung Fu Weapon of Skill, Kung Fu Saber: The Tiger Leaps, Kung Fu Spear: King of Weapons, and The Bandit Knife: Kung Fu's Rebellious Weapon. One winner takes it all.

    Held on May 20 2018, the second day of the 10th Annual Tiger Claw Elite KungFuMagazine.com Championship in San Jose, California.

    Question 1: Did anyone do Sik Fot?
    Question 2: Did you video that?

    Kung Fu is good for you.

    1: Not yet
    2: We will, if it happens

    Competitive BSL forms are typically limited to the small star (4-8) as you know. I hope someone has the guts to try a big star form. But then again, I'm just hoping we get enough competitors to keep running these. Honestly, after last year, I had multiple schools come up to me and say they loved it and they want to compete in 2019, but we're not seeing them registering yet. There's still hope - registration closes on May 10 (this Friday).
