2012 Houston Kung-Fu Tournament
2nd Annual "Lone Star" Championship - February 18-19, 2012
Marriott Westchase, 2900 briarpark, Houston, TX 77042
***We had a very successful tournament. As a judge, I saw many beautiful Tai Chi forms and met a lot of friendly, interesting people with great skill. The master's demonstration on Saturday evening was very memorable. There were many Tai chi and Kung Fu Grand Masters exhibiting their art, a real cultural treasure. This video clip features Greg Illich at the Master's Demonstration performing the end of the 2nd section of the Secret Yang Style (Michuan), a more martial part featuring "fa Jin", the explosive issuance of energy in a wave like fashion.
