Citation Letter from New York State Governor, Andrew M. Cuomo, Congratulating the 2018 U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship.

Dear Friends:

It is a pleasure to send greetings to everyone gathered at Queens College for the 10th Annual U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship.

All New Yorkers recognize the importance of maintaining healthy lifestyles and the benefits of lifelong fitness and exercise for everyone. The many different styles of martial arts are excellent methods for staying active, learning self-defense, and installing confidence, while at the same time demonstrating the cultural diversity of New York, promoting mutual respect and understanding.

Not just self-defense, the martial arts are a lifelong pursuit of self-improvement, focus, and discipline. Today’s championship will draw people from all the Greater Metropolitan Region and beyond eager to demonstrate the skills they have acquired after months and years of training. On behalf of the championship and all those affiliated with the World Fighting Martial Arts Federation, Shield Security International, and the International Wushu Masters Association for sponsoring this great event.

With warmest regards and best wishes for an enjoyable championship.

Sincerely,

Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State

“WWW.QQGFW.COM” Cup 2017 U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship & 7th Annual International Kung Fu Cultural Conference

Press Conference – Press Release

On Sunday October 1st at Queens College, NY, the “WWW.QQGFW.COM” 2017 U.S. Open Martial Arts Competition (USOMAC) & 7th Annual International Kung Fu Cultural Conference welcomes participants and spectators to an all-day cross-cultural event. Sponsored by the World Fighting Martial Arts Federation (WFMAF), and organized in collaboration with China’s International Kung Fu Federation (IKFF) and the New York Council of Chinese American Associations (NYCCAA), this is the 9th year of showcasing athletes from countries around the globe who compete for medals and cash prizes in diverse martial arts styles including form competitions in Wushu, Kung Fu, Karate, Taekwondo, Tai Chi, as well as combat competitions in Kumite, Sparring, Sanda (MMA), Shuai Jiao (Chinese Wrestling), and Weapon Sparring.

The USOMAC is an arena which promotes the core values of martial arts: self-discipline, respect for others, and an overall attitude of kindness toward all people. This tournament provides a unique experience for martial artists from around the globe to come together and compete in a friendly atmosphere, to share skills and knowledge, to establish new friendships with those who share the same core values of martial arts, and to express these core values through actions.

In previous years, the USOMAC has been recognized for community minded activities and demonstrations of martial spirit. NY Senator John J. Flanagan commended the USOMAC for “exemplary service to the community and State in providing an opportunity for martial arts organization to come together in their noble aims and accomplishments, in their unique professional achievements, in their good citizenship, and illustrate these qualities for the edification and emulation of others.” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and New York State Assemblyman Felix Ortiz presented citations to the USOMAC commending their civic mindedness and dedication to engendering the true spirit of martial arts.

This year, in keeping with its tradition of giving back to the community, the USOMAC is raising money for mental illness, with a goal of donating a minimum of $1000 to the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Department at Zucker Hillside Hospital to help patients train in coping skills, recovery skills, and job training.

The USOMAC is an occasion for celebrating cultural traditions, for exchanging knowledge, for recognizing the dedication and skills of the athletes who gather, the dedicated teachers who train them, the families who support and encourage them. During the Opening Ceremony, as has been done in previous years, Masters in all disciplines will demonstrate their artistry in their particular style so that all who gather have an opportunity to appreciate the rich, cultural history in which each style is rooted. The public is invited to attend as spectators, as participants, to be an active part of a cultural exchange, to support this international and community event.
