2000 Beijing Invitational Tournament Photos

photos by Mary Lee (9/10/00)

I didn't actually go to this tournament, but here a few photos of the openning ceremonies of the tournament, the Beijing Team demo and related dinner that Mary Lee provided for me to scan. Please let me know if I've got any of the captions wrong, ok? By the way, the information on the tournament can be found here.

If you're looking for more information (which I'm sure you are, since this is so limited), I encourage you to go to They have extensive coverage and results in Chinese, and some in English too. Also, if anyone else who attended the competition has some pictures they want to share, please let me know, we can put them up here.

Some of the other teams participatng can be seen in the background, the group in Black and White jackets towards the right is the third team from the USA, the Lily Lau Eagle Claw Academy, of Concord, CA.

At a tournament related dinner (I think), the team from Malaysia assembles to say a few words (either that or they're singing, I don't know I wasn't actually there).

The group from Hong Kong. Apparently they had quite a large contingency present.

Some of the guys of the Beijing Team pose for a group picture. Some of these guys are new so I don't want to risk getting anyone's name wrong. Anyway, thats my pal Shao Changjun on the right.
