This past weekend South Coast Martial Arts took a team of six young students to participate in the first ever United Kung Fu Tournament, held in Whittier at Rio Honda Community College. There was over 250 competitors representing Wushu and Shaolin Temple Martial Arts in both empty hand and weapon forms.
After a day of tough competition, all six of our South Coast Martial Arts students walked away with medals in their respective categories. In stand out performance, young Kayla Stanley earned gold in her empty hand forms division while Gavin and Meela Chu were able to earn double golds and enter into the Grand Champion Run offs. At the end of the day Meela placed third in the finals and Gavin took home top honors which included a large trophy and $200 cash for his performance of Ditang Quan. Conratulations to everyone involved and big thanks to the parents for their support!
