Dear Volunteer,

Tiger Claw's Championship (TCKFMC) and all of our staff would like to thank you for all of your assistance in previous years. Without your help, the Championship would not have been a success.

On Saturday, June 1st 2013, we will hold the 5th TCKFMC, once again at San Jose's spacious McEnery Convention Center South Hall.  This year, TCKFMC is combined with the 2013 Tiger Claw Elite Championship. 

The 2013 Tiger Claw Elite Championship holds three separate tournaments under one roof: TCKFMC, Tiger Claw's Taekwondo Championship and Tiger Claw's Traditional Karate Championship.  We are pleased to continue the 4th Annual WildAid Tiger Claw Championship, our showcase benefit event at TCKFMC.  We are looking towards you to volunteer for TCKFMC.


On Sunday, June 2nd 2013, we will be holding the second KUNG FU TAI CHI DAY Street Fair in San Jose. This event will be free and open to the public. It has always been the mission of Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine to promote the Chinese martial arts. If your school would like to participate in this event, or if you would like to volunteer, please contact Gene Ching at

We are hoping that we may be able to count on your assistance this year. We will have about 200+ divisions for Wushu, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Push Hands, Shaolin Temple Kung Fu, First Timer and Team competitions.  Please see our website for updates at 

Tiger Claw's Championship is only possible with the support from people like you; people involved in the martial arts community that would love to see it grow.
