Queen Charlotte’s Cup Postponed
It is with great regret that we are going to have to postpone this year’s CACMA Tournament event. My understanding is from our tournament director and staff that the NC Governor has mandated events with 100 or more participants be canceled. This all came down late today it is my understanding and after consulting with our board it was a unanimous decision to cancel the event and comply with the governors ruling.
We will definitely have this tournament this year! We just have to coordinate with the venue for an open date sometime in May or June. That according to what we are hearing, will be plenty of time for things to settle out, warm weather will arrive, and we will be able to have a fun and safe environment.
As always, you guys are our priority. You guys having fun, learning something from our event, the great camaraderie, and above all, in this situation, your absolute health and welfare.
I hope you guys understand this decision. If you have hotel rooms, it is our understanding at this point that they are going to allow cancellation without fees. Also if you’re flying in, check with your airline to find out how you will go about postponing your flight to the event.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact myself or Christopher Facente, or our tournament director Chris Weeks.

CACMA tournament certifies judges
The United States Kuoshu Federation sent representatives down to Charlotte for the first National Certification process to be held outside of the International Tournament in Baltimore. Masters John Green and Ian Chisholm and Sifu Ken Saunders held the training for CACMA. Certified Judges allow for better competition and allows CACMA to be a leader in a fair tournament.
CACMA Apps here, never miss your event!
The number one complaint we have from competitors is they missed their event due to not being at the scheduled time. While it is very hard to schedule a tournament out due to many variables, we can send push notifications through the CACMA app.
The CACMA app will also allow you to access the website and check for updates. Soon we will have the capability to register on the app. The iPhone version is coming soon, as soon as Apple gives us the approval.

Queen Charlotte’s Cup 2017 a success!
After a rocky start, including canceling the tournament at one point, the 2017 Queen Charlotte’s Cup went on to be another big success. Thanks to Sifu Eric Sbarge and the Peaceful Dragon, the event was well hosted and attended. Eight Lei Tai matches were held with competitors from as far north as Baltimore to as far south as Tampa FL.
One of the highlights, although a sad one, was the announcement of the passing of Master Li Keung of Lai Tung Pai. Master Li, already diagnosed with cancer, was due to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for his service to promoting Martial Arts. He will truly be missed.
