Our Bok Fu Do West Coast Regional Kuoshu Tournament – Fall 2013 was this past Saturday, September 21st, at San Ramon Valley High School in Danville. We have been hosting these tournaments sanctioned by the USKSF for many years now, and every tournament they seem to get better and better! The Black Belts and Instructors at East West are all very proud of each of the students that competed in this event. They showed great spirit and sportsmanship, two important qualities in a Bok Fu Do black belt. We were all pleased to see faces of many competitors from our past tournaments along with lots of new faces.
This tournament, we were also excited to add another Bok Fu school to our competitor list. Master Andy Nunez brought some of his students from Nunez Martial Arts Acadmeny in Roseville, to compete with us at our tournament. We enjoyed welcoming them to the family and look forward to having them back at future events.
A very big thank you to all of our Officials and Volunteers that helped make the event run smoothly. This was, by far, our most efficient tournament to date and that wouldn't have been possible without our incredible group of judges and volunteers that helped make the whole day possible. We sincerely thank you for all of our help on Saturday!
Finally, a special thank you to Mrs. Mannion Gray and Mrs. Poon, who were our tournament director and assistant director. There is an incredible amount of behind the scenes work to make these tournaments possible and they, as always, did a fantastic job. There were many new improvements that may not have been noticed by all, but definitely helped make everyone's experience a better one. We would like to take a moment to recognize the efforts of these two women who went above and beyond to make this event special for all of our competitors. Thank you Mrs. Mannion Gray and Mrs. Poon!
Take a look at our gallery of photos from the tournament HERE. If you have pictures that you took on Saturday, please either let us know so we can add them to our gallery!
Also, we'll have the Instructor Demonstration posted in the next day!
Our next West Coast Regional Tournament will be held in Winter 2014 at KO Kung Fu in San Jose. We look forward to seeing all of you there!
