2011 - Dallas Tournament Report
The Second Annual "Big-D" Chinese Martial Arts Championship held on May 14, 2011 at the Westin Park Central in Dallas went off without a hitch. While there was not a great increase in competitors from last year's event the tournament is becoming established in the community and we are committed to working on growing the event.
The "Big D"
The Westin Park Central offered a larger ballroom than our previous event and there is definitely room for growth; we committed to returning to this venue next year when the tournament will be extended over the entire weekend; look for the 3rd Annual "Big D" on May 18-20, 2012.
