Stuff Sifu Says

“Don’t worry about perfection. Just train everyday, and try to be just a bit better that you were yesterday and perfection will take care of itself.”

Ving Tsun Meets Shakespeare

Sifu Matt and some of the guys went to see Rok Teasley, a student at the academy, perform in MacSith. After the show, Sifu and the students did a little demo for the cast.

It was a great night. The play was wonderful and sharing martial arts info with true enthusiasts was a lot of fun.

We talked about the origins of ving tsun – myths and likely realities.

Red Boat Opera and how ving tsun if applied to MacSith would have made the play way too short by making the fight scenes happen too darn quick!

We also shot a little video, 8 short clips, which you can catch on YouTube.

Thanks so much to Orion Couling, director of MacSith and Rok Teasley for inviting us in. Break a leg you guys!
