The Mid-Autumn Festival held in the Tenderloin of San Francisco has been cancelled for September 2021, due to the changing virus conditions.
Per Sifu Fong, UC has stated no CMAT in spring of 2022. At the current time, community members are not allowed on the Berkeley campus. Additionally, the university is reviewing their policies on recruiting, which limits Sifu Fong’s ability to recruit new team members for Cal. A possibility exists for a Fall 2022 CMAT event. Any updates will be posted here.
And for those of you wondering about the Universty Games. Wushu is still slated to be apart of that event. Tentatively set for June 26,2022 in Chengdu, China. Now that was before the variant, that may change. Or China might decide to go ahead with the event. The other problem, is can the US field a Collegiate team, and the cost might be very high. In the neighborhood, of $5,000 per athlete, plus we might have to quarantine. Which we will have to foot the Hotel bills. So I have informed USAWKF for permission to take a team, but again with the variant we might still not go. I will revisit this topic in October to see where the country and the World is, that will probably decide on whether the US sends a team.
Caltopia is still planned for August 29, 2021, from 10am to 4pm on the campus of UC Berkeley. The event introduces new students to clubs and recreational events available on campus. Cal Wushu will be participating, so if you have time to volunteer, please let us know!

Unfortunately it is with regret that I must announce that CMAT 28 will be postponed until next year. I apologize any inconvenience that this decision may have cost any of you. The CMAT committee did not easily make this decision. But, as of today only 79 competitors have signed up for the competition. From further investigation, we realized many people are not willing to travel because of the coronavirus, or to take part in big events. Certainly, we understand everyone’s concern, and make your safety and health our main concern.
Please, stay in touch thru this channel for latest developments in CMAT, and Collegiate Wushu.
Thank you for your support.

Sifu Bryant Fong, disciples, and students traveled to Bejing in early November for training in Xing Yi and Baguazhang with Master Yang and Master Zhao. The training was intense but rewarding!
