One of my seniors the other day bumped into an old student of mine that decided some time ago to pursue a career in a different, more commercial version of Wing Chun. Why? maybe it was the eastern promise, the golden dragons, the banners or possibly the frantic drumming. Maybe it was the allure of a Chinese "sifu" surely if they look like they know Kung Fu, then they must by default, right??
This ex student of mine says to my senior student
" I'm Biu Ji, what form and level are you, you must be getting there now. Your skills are pretty good, your way better than me?"
My student looked at him, raised an eyebrow and replied " I've just opened my stance in Siu Nim Tao".
Commercial Wing Chun students, you've got to love em!!
