Horse Stance competition on May 17th!

As anyone who follows the Chinese calendar will know, 2014 is the Year of the Horse. We even posted a piece on the significance of the Year of the Horse to martial artists on Chinese New Year. And as far Kung Fu Magazine is concerned, there’s only one proper way to do the Year of the Horse its proper justice –  the first ever Horse Stance competition held by Tiger Claw Elite’s Kung Fu Magazine Championship!

Known as “Ma Bu” in China, the Horse Stance has been a staple of countless martial arts styles all throughout Asia for centuries. Like all stance training, it’s designed as a means of developing focus, and of strengthening the legs, both to provide martial artists with a strong foundation and powerful legs for using kicking techniques in combat.

As any martial arts veteran can tell you, it’s quite a challenge to maintain a proper horse stance for extended periods of time, but the benefits of such training are immeasurable. If you think that you’re ready for the challenge, visit or consult the tournament information section of Kung Fu for details!

From the earliest days of childhood, Brad Curran was utterly fascinated by martial arts, his passion only growing stronger after spending time living in the melting pot of Asian cultures that is Hawaii. His early exposure developed into a lifelong passion and fascination with all forms of martial arts and tremendous passion for action and martial arts films. He would go on to take a number of different martial arts forms, including Shaolin Ch'uan fa, Taekwondo, Shotokan Karate and remains a devoted student, avid and eager to continue his martial arts studies. Brad is also an aspiring writer and deeply desires to share his love for martial arts and martial arts movies with the world!
