Washington, DC, August 02, 2017 –(PR.com)– This weekend, come watch as the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center is transformed into a full-on showdown at the Shaolin Temple, as thousands of the world’s top martial artists battle it out, karate-kid style, in one of the largest martial arts competitions in the country – The US Capitol Classics. From Korean Tae Kwon Do, to Japanese Karate, to Chinese Kung Fu, top competitors from across the globe go head-to-head in a jaw-dropping 31 rings of simultaneous fighting action. It’s slated to be an unforgettable weekend chock full of the best in every fighting style imaginable all in one place, making it the must see martial arts show of the summer! Featuring a variety of both the fighting and grappling arts, guests will be treated to impressive demonstrations of martial arts weapons and forms, thrilling individual and team competitions, gut-wrenching eliminations, and stunning stage performances all culminating in The Grand Championship and Legends Banquet where die-hard fans are sure to catch a glimpse of some of their favorite legendary martial artists being honored, like Jhoon Rhee and Michael Jai White.
The incredible event, founded by Kung Fu Master Dennis Brown, one of the most recognized, accomplished and influential martial artists in America, marks the 35th year of the national-level competition, from which top stars like Twilight’s Taylor Lautner, Tae Bo expert Billy Blanks and even Caitlin Dechelle, the lead stunt double in the current blockbuster, Wonder Woman, were all discovered whilst competing.
“Folks that come to our event, could very well be watching the biggest future action stars in the making,” says Master Brown, who is quite the star in the martial arts world himself. The Kung Fu Grandmaster holds the record as the first American allowed to enter Communist China as well as the first African American ever to not only visit the Shaolin temple, but train in it. “I was actually there when Jet Li filmed the iconic martial arts movie 'Shaolin Temple,' so that tells you how long I’ve studied my craft.” Master Brown even went on to train in Beijing under none other than Wu Bin, the very same master as Jet Li!
Because of his more than 52 years of dedication to the martial arts, the Wang Qihe Taijiquan Association of Hebei Province, China has sought him out and chosen this Saturday night at the US Capitol Classics to formally present Master Dennis Brown with their Letter of Appointment, officially making him Chairman of their association and the only American to ever represent China’s leading style of Tai Chi and meditation in the US. In honor of the momentous occasion, the Wang Qihe Taijiquan Association will be performing for Master Brown and the lucky spectators in attendance. It will be the first time they’ve ever performed in the United States.
Master Dennis Brown is the president of the Dennis Brown Shaolin Wu-Shu Training Center in Silver Spring, where he’s been training and teaching legions of students a broader understanding that classic Kung-Fu is about so much more than just fighting. The Training Center offers wellness-tested physical, mental and life skill benefits appropriate and applicable for students of all ages.
