Unsung in the City of Champions: The Story of Martial Arts in Edmonton

“I didn’t know that!” Chinatown Stories consists of 3 free online webinars for Asian Heritage Month 2021 – May 16, 23 and 30.

Edmonton was once touted with the moniker “City of Champions”, but that was about the city’s hockey and football teams that won Stanley Cups and Grey Cups. In Chinatown, and little known beyond the Chinese community, the Edmonton martial arts organizations have champions who competed worldwide and brought back numerous high honours.
