We will be raffling off martial arts books and Li Ning shoes and shirts during the competition! Your step by step guide to winning awesome prizes:
1. Buy raffle tickets in the front check-in area for $1/ticket (buy five get one free!).
2. Insert your tickets in the raffle box either in the front check-in area or the back vendor area.
3. Listen for your number to be called over the intercom – a number will be called every hour starting from noon until prizes run out.
4. After hearing your number, bring your ticket to the back vendor area to pick up your prize! If your number happens to be called while you are competing, don’t worry – we will record all numbers called on a list located with prize pick-up that you may check anytime, and you will have three hours after your number is called to come pick up your prize.
Thank you to Eastwind Books of Berkeley and Kung Fu Direct for making this possible!

Thank you all for your patience with us as we transition to a new registration payment system this year. We understand that some of you have been unable to register due to technical difficulties. In order to ensure that all competitors have a chance to register, we will be extending the registration deadline by one week to March 15th. As always, feel free to direct any questions to email@example.com (registration inquiries) or to firstname.lastname@example.org (general questions).
Hope to see you all at CMAT 21!
To all competitors who will be competing in the New Compulsory divisions, a few of our wonderful judges will be holding a seminar on the new routines. The seminar will take place Friday night before CMAT in Haas Pavilion at UC Berkeley. This is a great opportunity for competitors to get pointers on these forms before the actual competition. Please see the CMAT New Compulsory Seminar Flyer for more details.
This event is jointly sponsored with USAWKF.
Registration is open!
Please follow this link to reach the official CMAT registration page where you can register for this year’s competition. It is highly recommended to read over our rules page before registering, as there are a few changes from previous years. Please note that we will be capping competitors at 500, so sign up before registration is full!
If you have any questions about registering, please direct them to our registration team at email@example.com
As many of you might already know, the next Worlds tournament will include compulsory routine competition. In order to help athletes prepare for world competition, CMAT 21 will also be introducing New Compulsory Changquan and New Compulsory Nanquan divisions this year. All athletes participating in these events will be required to compete with the newest standardized compulsory forms. Please note, the new compulsory divisions will be replacing the nandu divisions – those who still wish to compete with their individual forms may do so by registering in the regular Advanced Changquan and Advanced Nanquan divisions.
Tiger Claw will be holding a Compulsory Routine Seminar on December 9th from 10:00am-5:30pm at Legend Kung Fu Academy in Newark, CA. The seminar will be $60 per person (space is limited), and you may call (510)668-1100 for reservations or more information.
For those of you who cannot attend the seminar, here are videos of the official routines for your reference: Changquan Nanquan
If you have any more questions about this change, please email the Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll reply to you promptly.
Thank you and have a wonderful end of the year! Jia you!
