The event, which honors martial artists from around the world for excellence in their fields, will take place on Saturday, July 27, at the Hilton Costa Mesa Hotel. The event will feature Dr. Robert Goldman as Grand Master of Ceremonies.

With her record of success both in competition and on the screen, Cynthia Rothrock has earned the title of “Queen of the Martial Arts Films”

A devotee of Far Eastern martial arts, Rothrock holds black belts in Korean Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do, Chinese Wushu, Eagle Claw Kung Fu, and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu. A master of both Kata (style) and weapons, she was the undefeated World Karate Champion in both areas of competition from 1981-1985. Rothrock has traveled around the world to demonstrate her skills with such weapons as the Chinese Double Broad Swords, Staff and Chinese Nine-section Steel Whip Chain.

Rothrock began her film career in 1985 in the Chinese film Huang jia shi jie (Yes, Madam), playing opposite Michelle Yeoh. Since then she has appeared in more than 50 films and series, as well as producing or co-producing seven titles. Most recently Rothrock co-starred and co-produced The Martial Arts Kid.

“The Masters Hall of Fame is honored to have Sifu Cynthia Rothrock as our keynote speaker for our 20th Anniversary Award Banquet,” says Chairman Daniel Hect. “Cynthia is not only an amazing martial artist, she is an inspiration to all who have met her.”
