HistoryOriginally hosted over 20 years ago, the first official US Open International Sanda/Sanshou fight was held at the Mobile Convention Center - the same field where great fighters like David Sanders and Cung Le got their start. Throughout its history, the US Open has produced hundreds of international competitors like Patrick Barry, Scott Sheeley, Michael Altman, James Cooper, Melvin Guillard, Li Jie, Rudi Ott, Wael Mohammed, Jason Yee, K.J. Noon and Albert Pope. Since its inception, some of the best Sanda, K-1, UFC and other MMA fighters began their amateur and/or professional fighting careers at the US Open International Martial Arts Championships. Today, the US Open continues the tradition of combining excellence in athletic competition with community leadership via its competitions in Kung Fu, Sanda, and Tai Chi and works continuously towards its mission of helping local area youth develop a strong sense of self-discipline, honor, and character development, and is proud to be hosted in Mobile.
