Young Dragons.

November 12, 2007

I was interviewed by a local radio station in Penang prior to the show and one question put to me was; what needs to be done to promote TCMA with the youths?

 

My answer was, in a nutshell, repackaging to make it more conducive – change the form but keep the substance, so to speak.

 

More events to increase visibility was my other recommendation; it’s not easy to see TCMA event these days. Out of sight, out of mind …

 

However, the Nov 3 show did see 2 group of young exponents taking the stage alongside the masters and veterans; Singapore Zhou Jia and Sarawak Chinese Martial Art Association.

 

One from my Zhou Jia family and having a hand in teaching the other; it gave tremendous delight to introduce them and see them hold their grounds among all the experienced practitioners during their performances.

 

Not forgetting my young friend from Sibu, Edmond Wong who not only performed and co-hosted the show with me, he was also running around helping out in the logistics.

 

Well, you know what they say about the “long” river in China; it takes the young to lend energy to the old to keep moving …..

 

Young dragons ……
