USAWKF China Trip Cancelled for 2020

We will not be taking a team to the 2020 WUC in Liaoyang, and also will not be participating in the Gymnasiade, unfortunately.

The next University Games trials will be held in March 2021 at CMAT 28. CMAT 28 will also host the trials for the World Traditional Championships. I look forward to seeing all of you next year. Be safe and healthy!

CMAT 28 Cancelled

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.
