We will have about 300+ divisions for Wushu, Kung Fu, Shaolin, Tai Chi, First Timer and Team competitions, as well as a new Tiger Claw May the Fourth LED Saber Championship and of course, our showcase WildAid Tiger Claw Championships.

    Yesterday's Judges & Volunteer meeting

    We had a good meeting for our judges and volunteers at Tiger Claw yesterday. There were quite a few updates this year, including the shift from the Songshan Shaolin division to the Shaolin Kung Fu Games and the inclusion of Wushu Taiji under Wushu instead of Tai Chi.

    I'm posting a pic from our Facebook page, but fb changes its algorithms so much that the URL will disappear soon. If you really want to see it, check out our new fb album - 2024 Tiger Claw Elite KungFuMagazine.com Championships.



    So grateful for our volunteers. They make it all possible.

    .
    Where can one most likely find Shaolin animal forms? Traditional Kung Fu or Shaolin Kung Fu Games? It seems that animal forms are not a much a part of their curriculum anymore...

    Fair question

    Within the scope of TCEC, there would be more within the traditional and wushu divisions.

    Within Songshan Shaolin, there are animal forms but for the most part, those are considered more part of the Southern Shaolin curriculum than at Songshan. There's a semi-standard 5 animal form that is floating about the Songshan circles (I even did an article on that for our print magazine, but I can't find it right now). Most regard that as a reconstructed form however.
