Greetings from the U.S. Sumo Federation (USSF) and Lone Star Sumo!   Lone Star Sumo will host the U.S. National Sumo Championships at the 2nd Annual Asian-Pacific Island Celebration (APIC) in San Antonio, TX on Saturday, May 20th, 2017.  

The inaugural APIC Festival was in 2016.  It coincides with the National Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month which takes place each May.    It celebrates the culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who live in Texas and more specifically, in San Antonio and the surrounding area.  

Along with traditional music, dance, food, games, educational activities, and exhibitions, the San Antonio APIC Festival focuses on the martial arts.  The 2016 Festival showcased a Muay-Thai tournament.  For 2017 we will be highlighting Japan’s national sport of sumo wrestling.  

The APIC Festival is partnering with the United States Sumo Federation (USSF) and Lone Star Sumo in producing the 22nd Annual North American and U.S. National Sumo Championships at our event.  Each year approximately 30-50 of the top U.S. male and female amateur sumo athletes compete at these Championships to qualify for the chance to represent the United States at the international level – in July 2017, it will be the World Games in Wroclaw, Poland.  For more info, email president@AmericanSumo.org, or contact Tom Zabel.
