Every year, the U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship attracts hundreds of elite level national and international competitors. They gather here in New York City to compete for medals and cash prizes, with diverse divisions in Kung Fu, Karate, Taekwondo, Wushu, Tai Chi, Weapons, Sparring, Judo, and Chinese Wrestling. Organized by the World Fighting Martial Arts Federation (WFMAF), a nonprofit organization established in 2009, the U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship is one of the premier martial arts competition events on the East Coast of the United States. The 2017 U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship will be held on October 1st at Queens College in New York City.

The U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship provides an opportunity for martial arts practitioners of all ages to come together and show their martial arts skills in healthy and fair competition. This is the eighth year of our nationally and internationally recognized competition, and we are honored by the words of New York State Senator John J. Flanagan, who publicly commended our tournament for “exemplary service to the community and State in providing an opportunity for martial arts organizations 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.”

In addition to the large number of competitors and spectators who participate in our tournament, the U.S. Open Martial Arts Championship receives substantial internet viewership from a large audience nationwide and worldwide, both before and after the tournament. On the Google search engine, our tournament is ranked at the top spot among martial arts tournaments nationwide and worldwide using the following keywords:

In adition to the popularity generated by our website, we use social media sites as complementary tools for promoting our tournament. We post weekly updates about our tournament using written texts, photos, and videos on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and Pinterest. We also have our own YouTube channel with video highlights from our previous tournaments.

Using the tools of our website and social media sites, we help you to reach more effectively a focused target audience nationwide and worldwide for your brand or products. For sponsors doing business in New York City, we assist you in targeting a more concentrated audience in New York City and Long Island. Your tax-deductible contribution and support is graciously received by the WFMAF who uses all of it to defray the costs of the actual tournament. None of it is used for administrative purposes as the organizational team has donated their time and services.
