Reunited and I’m feeling good….

November 18, 2007

So to different folks, this Penang event meant different things.

 

And many came, driven by their own motivations; to view rare Hakka styles, having 4 different White Crane styles contrasted etc etc….

 

Yes 4, we actually had a “Shaolin White Crane” represented by Sifu Ting Tiong Kong of Sibu but unfortunately he sprained an ankle during rehearsal and had to miss the night’s public show.

 

But during the rehearsal, it was eyes opening to first see Sifu Liu, Ruan Dong , Sifu Ting and then I jumped in to do a little of Fuzhou White Crane.

 

One bird but 4 different representations….

 

This event also witnessed the get-together of 3 lines of Nanyang Wing Chun; something that has not been done in the last 50 years or more….

 

I recall when I first spoke to Sifu Yip Fook Choy and his top student, Tony and they were really eager about meeting Por Suk.

 

Because of the change in dates, Sifu Yip had to let pass the occasion. He is occupied with judging a “Lion Dance” competition in KL the same weekend….

 

So we had Sifu Tony, Sifu Ku and Por Suk gracing the stage together for the first time in recent history.

 

To me, another piece of icing on the cake ….

 

And I am fully aware of Sifu Ku’s wish to reunite the Wing Chun families in Malaysia and Singapore.

 

Sifu Ku knows he can count on me to pull the strings.
