Don’t criticize what you can’t understand.

January 13, 2009

So you encounter something that is “out of the ordinary” to you – kung fu, food, and customs etc etc…

So what do you do?

Make an effort to find out more or simply reject it insensitively? What?

Take the following 2 clips for instance; the first is something called “Spiritual or Holy Tiger” boxing posted by someone over at youtube.

A style that I first read about in a book published many years ago and only got to glimpse recently thru DVDs from the mainland.

Granted, not your usual kung fu norms but to spite it is, to me, a little over the top….

Read some of the comments posted and you’ll know what I am talking about.

The 2nd clip is extracted from a DVD in my library – something known as “Tang Ping 7 Postures” Boxing.
No inkling prior to this DVD but then with some 600 plus styles recorded throughout the long history of TCMA, I am not very surprised.

My take? Keep an open mind and try to find out more…..

One thing for certain, I am not going to put it down.
