Chinese Martial Arts Tournament 2008

Memorial Day Weekend – My son Daniel has been participating in Kung Fu for the past two years with the Chinese Martial Arts Academy in Dunedin, Florida with Master Scrima.
In June of 2006 he competed in the 2006 International Chinese Martial Arts Tournament at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida with a single form, Gong Li Guan. He had no idea what it was all about or what he was in store for. In mid form he lost focus and wasn’t as solid as he could have been.
In fall of 2006 he competed in some smaller tournaments and it motivated him as he medaled against a variety of competitors.
In 2007 he was training at forms and at San Shou, Kung Fu’s name for full contact fighting. Just two weeks before the competition he broke his foot sparring. He was devastated, but he still went to observe the event.
In the fall of 2007 he increased his training from two times a week to five times a week. When the Chinese Martial Arts Tournament came up Memorial Day weekend of 2008 he was prepared for six different events.
Below are his gold medal performances Liuhe Bafa, Ba Gua, and Xing Yi Saber.
