I’m jealous. You know why? Because ya’ll can go to this San Da competition on Saturday the 19th and I CAN’T. Previous engagement and all. And yes, you heard me right. This Saturday, the 2nd Annual “Emerald City” Chinese Martial Arts Championship is being hosted at the Convention Center in Seattle.

Got plans this weekend? No? THEN, GO.

There, now you have plans. c:

Don’t worry– they won’t be wearing the spangly spandex. Although it IS cool. Just saying.

Here are all the details!

  • Who: YOU! And you’ll be watching martial artists from around the country competing different styles of martial arts
  • When: Saturday May 19th at 9:30AM
  • What: A tournament… dur. Oh! And it costs 25 bucks.
  • Where: At the Washington State Convention Center (downtown Seattle) 800 Convention Place
  • Why: Just… because. Gee, all these questions.
  • How: I dunno, carpool, bus it, monorail? Does the monorail go downtown? -shrug-

Yup, that’s the gist of it. Let me know if you go, I wish I could!

About kungfoody

I’ve watched the movies. Seen the action. Winced at the violence, laughed at the subtitles. But I never thought I’d join the subculture of Chinese martial arts. When I finally did, two or three months ago with my husband, it was a lot different than I expected. What I expected were long laborious hours of training, sweating, crying, muscle pain, bleeding knuckles and the like. What I didn’t expect was that, along with all of those glorious side effects of pushing my body to its limits, I would become friends with my classmates, frequently bonding over the sacred fighting style of kung-fu/wushu, and religiously visiting different restaurants in the area for a celebratory dinner after practice. And so, the inspiration was born. “Kung-Foodie”; the martial arts/where to eat after a good work out blog.
