Tournaments – 2017

June 30th – July 2nd – 19th Annual Orlando, Florida ICMAC Tournament

Wulin ICMAC 2017

This year Wulin was able to send five people down to compete at the annual ICMAC event in Orlando.  All of us had a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones.  Sam’s first competitive fight resulted in a win by TKO, and his second fight turned out to be against one of his coaches: our friend Sehing Mark Lorenzo from Goh’s Kung Fu in Baltimore.  Michaline faced tough competition in her Intermediate Tai Chi divisions, and ShiJie Jackie got her first gold medal for Tai Chi Sword after months of drilling it.  Janet Montague from Bradenton, FL came out to compete as well, competing alongside ShiJie Jackie for the Women’s Tai Chi Grand Champion title!

This was probably the most fun any of us have had at Orlando, and we look forward to seeing everyone there again for an even bigger event next year!  The 20th Annual Orlando ICMAC is now only 12 months away!  Let’s send as many people as we can to that one!
