The Martial Spirit in Competitions
Organized by the World Fighting Martial Arts Federation (WFMAF), the USOMAC is an arena which promotes the core values of martial arts: self-discipline, self-respect and respect for others, the nurturing of personal growth, benevolence towards others, and the practice of inclusion of all people and cultures as a means to building a whole and healthy society. 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. Come and join us on October 1st for our 9th Annual Championship, and experience for yourself martial spirit hand in hand with one of the premier martial arts tournament events on the East Coast of the United States.
A Bigger & Better International Competition Stage
This year, the World Fighting Martial Arts Federation (WFMAF) and the International Kung Fu Federation (IKFF) will join forces to bring you a bigger and better international competition stage for both meeting with and competing against the best athletes from around the globe. The IKFF is one of the top Kung Fu organizations in China, with regional members from Russia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia, and Africa. The IKFF hosts the International Kung Fu Cultural Conference, an international level martial arts competition with over 300 participating athletes from China, Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Brazil, United Kingdom, Georgia, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Turkey, and Uzbekistan.
By combining the resources, expertise, and competitive events from both the U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship and the International Kung Fu Cultural Conference, we raise the bar of our international martial event and offer a higher level of competition.
