Gung Fu

Gung Fu by Lawrence Ramirez Sifu

Throughout the years since the Bodhidharma traveled to China and Shaolin Temple at the foot of Shaoshi mountain in the Song mountain range in the Henan province, where Gung Fu began, there have been those whom study martial arts, but were never worthy of receiving such training in the first place.

These people reside in the lower four worlds of life:
“Hell–a condition of despair in which one is completely overwhelmed by suffering; Hunger–a state dominated by deluded desire that can never be satisfied; Animality–an instinctual state of fearing the strong and bullying the weak; Anger–a state characterized by an unrestrained competitive urge to surpass and dominate others and often under a pretence of being good and wise. These four states are referred to as the Four Evil Paths because of the destructive negativity that marks them. ” (SGI-USA, http://www.sgi.org/buddhism/buddhist-concepts/ten-worlds.html).

Even Bodhidharma was plagued with this problem by one of his followers before he even arrived in China.

Some cannot grasp idea that, dedication to study, knowledge, and even Happiness cannot be transmitted from human to human, it develops within each of us. Only the ideas are shared among us, it is ultimately up to the individual to either study and manifest these lofty ideals or remain in the lower worlds or states of life.

Every martial arts style, system, or pugilistic form has this type of person among the ranks today and has had them throughout the years from the beginnings.

I have many martial artist friends from across several style, systems and lineage, they have all had personal experience with these people. It is nothing new.

Today in the ever growing world of martial artists there is another factor which rears its ugly head among those whom reside in and among the Low Worlds, those whom hold greed close under false pretense of false sage or wisdom, slandering others.

All whom study Martial Arts know these Truths, and most of us Respect each other, we may not share the same Ideas on how to take care of an attacker and send him home via the hospital, but we do respect each other and our particular Tao , or path in Martial Art.

I do not know anothers intent, but when I see it I act, if the intent is to harm someone, I protect them. I uphold the Traditions of Wing Chun Kung Fu.

Be wary of whom you teach, there are only few worthy.

Be Well, Much Respect,
