In 2010, the Year of the Tiger, the Tiger Claw Foundation pledged to support WildAid in its efforts to preserve wild tigers. In 2011, the Tiger Claw Foundation renewed that pledge and expanded it to encompass all the endangered species that WildAid seeks to protect. The Tiger Claw Foundation will continue to present WildAid’s public service announcements on its various media platforms throughout the year.

The 2018 WildAid Tiger Claw Championships will be held on Sunday of the 10th Tiger Claw Elite KungFuMagazine.com Championship, May 19-20, 2018 in San Jose, California. The WildAid Tiger Claw Champion is a showcase benefit division held at Tiger Claw’s KungFuMagazine.com Championship.
