2012 Tournament Report

Dear Friends,

The 2nd Annual "Emerald City" Chinese Martial Arts Championship hosted on May 19, 2012 at the Washington State Convention Center in Downtown Seattle was another step to bringing the ICMAC tournaments to the Northwest.

Nearly 150 competitors, more than 20 were Sport Sanda Fighters, attended the event from several states. We also had a strong contingency of participants from Canada. While the turnout was not great, this at times is to be expected with a new event. We feel that this area is a stronghold for Chinese Martial Arts and we want everyone to know that ICMAC is determined to build this championship; look for the 3rd edition to be announced soon!

We want to express our appreciation to all the participants and offer a special thank you to the volunteers from Dr. Lu Mei-Hui and Chang Wu Na and from Susan Farrar, who all worked tirelessly at their posts throughout the day.

Also, we extend our thanks to Sifu Mak Hin-Fai and his team for the Lion Dance performance during the Opening Ceremonies and the Masters Showcase.

We wish to recognize all the Special Guests, Officials and Sifus who participated and supported the event; they appear here in alphabetical order: Katie Brown, Colleen Butterley, Andrew Chan, Wu Na Chang, Jun Hong Chon, Wally Chow, Ken Chun, Restita DeJesus, Jill Doherty, Dennis Echols, Mak Fai, Susan Farrar, Julio Ferrer, Bruce Fontaine, Chunhua Fu, Jon Funk, John Furda, John Jones, Keith Judelman, John Koo, Richard Lee, Wes Letioa, Tianyuan Li, Greg Louie, Ken Low, Mei-Hui Lu, Tao Ling Rong, Paul Sheridan, Russ Shulman, Tim Stutzman, Henry Su, Ben Thomas, Sylvia Wong, Wilkie Wu, Henry Poo Yee, Gao Ying, Lei Zhou, Bi-Sheng Zhu.

With heartfelt gratitude,
