Hello, to all martial artists and their families.First of all my wife and I would like to thank you all for the support you have given us over these past 10 years. We would like to invite you, your family and friends to come out and celebrate with us at the 10th annual West Coast Nationals to be held on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at Los Angeles Southwest College. This will be the 10 year birthday for the tournament, and it's going to be a party and celebration of thanks for your support over the past 10 years. We are having a special cake made from the famous King Hawaiian Bakery. We will also have special guest to honor you. If you know me, you know that I love the martial arts and you all are my family. We are working very hard to make the West Coast Nationals a tournament that you look forward to attending every year. For 2017, we will be a totally paperless tournament. T.V. monitors will be at every ring and electronic kiosks will be at registration for your convenience. We are bringing in new traditional Kung – Fu forms and Kung – Fu sparring as well as Olympic Style Traditional Japanese and Okinawan Kata and Kumite. We have bigger trophies and more cash awards. So in conclusion, we need your help again to make this year better than last year. We learned a lot from last year and have made the appropriate corrections. Remember we are martial artists and we never stop learning. A martial artist is to always be better than they were the last time. With that being said we thank you very much and look forward to seeing you on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at the West Coast Nationals.
