2012 April 21 Grandmaster Huang's Tien Shan Pai Legacy Tournament at U.S. Martial Arts Academy, Ltd., Timonium, Maryland

Many thanks to all of the volunteers, competitors, and spectators who made Grandmaster Huang’s 2012 Tien Shan Pai Legacy Tournament such a success.

This annual event was held here at U.S. Martial Arts Academy, Ltd. on Saturday, April 21, 2012.  We had 79 competitors from the local Tien Shan Pai schools (affiliated with Grandmaster Huang).  Events included single and two person Kung Fu forms both empty hand and with weapons, light contact sparring, Tai Chi competitions both empty hand and with weapons, and Pushing Hands competitions.

Competitors who competed in this tournament got excellent practice, and hopefully, advice and ways to improve from the judges.  This should be helpful for the much larger U.S. International Kuo Shu Championship Tournament held in Hunt Valley, Maryland in July.

Tien Shan Pai Legacy Tournament — April 16, 2011

On April 16, 2011, U.S. Martial Arts Academy, Ltd. was honored to hold Grandmaster Huang’s 2011 Tien Shan Pai Legacy Tournament.  This is a competition for students from Grandmaster’s school, his disciples’ schools, and invited schools.

Though the weather was less than cooperative, the heavy rain and blustery winds did not deter the nearly 100 competitors and their supporters.  Competitors ranged from the youngest Kung Fu Kids (4 – 8 years old) through the adult advanced students of Northern Kung Fu and Tai Chi.

This tournament is a yearly event and is a good way to step into tournament competition.  It is an excellent way to prepare for the much larger international competition held yearly, during the last full weekend in July, in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

The U.S. International Kuo Shu Championship Tournament will be held on July 29 – 31, 2011, at the Hunt Valley Marriott.  For more information, click on The World Kuo Shu Federation.
