百年武林 100 years of Wu Lin.

March 11, 2009

Want to thank all of you who have responded with interest in the new site  and since I will be away for about a week starting tomorrow (Thursday), I want to leave you with some more pics and the assurance that the new site will be up and running when I return.

I want to particularly thank those of you who came with a self-intro which is something that I wish to see from all participants.

Frankly, I am tired of dealing with faceless netizens; acceptable for idle chat rooms etc but TCMA, to me, is important business meant to be conducted with as much “truth” as possible.

Beginning with your identity, regardless of levels, we congregate because we love TCMA in one form or another and want to, in our respective personal way, be included in the perpetuation and longevity of the arts.

Every one of us, a grain of sand, in the great pagoda called CKF.

And very humbly, I look forward to the new site in becoming the gel in the grand scheme of things – with contributions coming from you.

Besides my personal experience, collection of magazines, books and videos, I am also in the position to seek advice from the many masters and teachers for their views and opinions.

Masters who are willing to share what they have spent their entire lifetime acquiring.

And just like in everything else, it takes 2 hands to clap – the givers and takers.

The time will come for us to give but first we must receive ……..

I picked this set of pics to post because I find them pertinent to what I am trying to communicate here.

Extracted from a mainland article named “100 years of Wu Lin” the author seeks to trace the major CKF events in the last 100 years of mainland history.

Jin Wu, Central Kuoshu and competition Wushu etc are his centerpieces.

I find the article thought-provoking in many ways – what will we see at the end of the 100 yrs period that we are living in?

Now that CKF is not confined to Asia and we are able interact like never before – CKF will be submitted to unprecedented trials and challenges…..

Come to think of it, we all have a accountability in the shaping of things to come. 

How will this generation of CKF descendants be remembered in the corridor of history?

And folks, if I can contribute, even in a minuscule way, I will be happy. 

Okay, that said, it’s Carlsberg time.

Cheers.

    Greetings, I like your sentiment.

    As way of introduction, my name is Adrian Edlington. I’m an Australian living in Taipei. I’ve been practicing TCMA for many years though shy away from blogs, forums and anything else for that matter for exactly the reasons you stated.

    I too am interested in the ideas put forward of how MA training helps other aspects of our lives.

    I’d like to join your forum. Can I have an invitation?

    Cheers.

    Eric
