Here are some comments from competitors, performers and judges that attended:
Jason – Judge/Performer “For myself, this was my first opportunity to judge form competition and the experience was enriching. I witnessed many classmates supporting others and giving it their best, with dignity and determination.”

Vincent – Competitor/Performer “Other competitors helped me identify what the judges were looking for and helped me recognize positive and negative aspect of other people’s performance so that I can apply that knowledge to my own forms” .

Ramsey – Competitor/Performer “Through competition we don’t compete with others we compete with ourselves and through practice we can make ourselves better.”

Matt – Volunteer/Performer “I wish I did compete; it seemed like a lot of fun, but I was able to help with photography during the competition, and perform at the end”

Mike – Judge/Performer “I have become more confident through judging as it provided for more self esteem, so that I can better apply myself.”

Master Ye – You all did a great job, Shaolin Kungfu Zen dispatched 3 sets of resources to the competition Judges, Competitors, and Volunteers. We not only challenged ourselves, but helped others through our assistance in this event. Practice will promote more self confidence; you can overcome through practice and competition.
