Grandmaster Tse’s Wing Chun Note 452

The end of the birthday dinner was approaching and so it was time to start saying goodbye to each other.

Taai Sīgōng Ip Chun’s 葉準太師公 100th Birthday

Part 11

There were so many people and a lot of us did not want to leave, we just wanted to continue talking, because we had not seen each other for such a long time. In the Wing Chun world, if you Chī Sáu 黐手 a lot with your Kung Fu brothers and sisters and learn together, you develop a special bond and become very close. Of course, martial arts tend to attract more men then ladies as men like action and most ladies are gentler. Wing Chun is no different, even though it was created by a lady – Ng Mui Sitai 五枚師太. At the end It was hard to say goodbye, so we carried on greeting each other and chatting, but eventually, it was time to leave and say goodbye.

I still had not managed to see my Sīfú 師父, but I realised this would depend on the situation, the weather and if he had time to see me as he could not see everyone. However, the next day his son, Ip Kwong Chiu 葉廣超, told me that Sifu would like to see me and so I was over the moon!
