The International Chinese Martial Arts Championship is returning to Massachusetts! The largest Chinese martial arts tournament in the region, this tournament is open to all students wishing to test their Kung Fu and Tai Chi skills. We hope to have a strong representation from Metrowest Kung Fu at this big and fun event, which attracts competitors from around the country. Like the other tournaments we attend, this event is friendly and accessible, but it is large, so it is important for students to remember that they are not only representing themselves, but also their teacher, their school, their Kung Fu style, and even their country. Courteous behavior is absolutely mandatory, and students should be prepared to present their very best Kung Fu and Tai Chi to the judges. To help prepare, students are encouraged to attend the tournament preparation class described above. Online registration for the tournament will be available shortly.
