First, I would like to start by thanking all of the students and their parents at our school and also welcome newcomers to come join our Kung Fu family. Learning Kung Fu together here at Pure Shaolin Kung Fu has made us one big family, and it is a family that we very honored to lead. Kung Fu is different from other sports: there are no seasons, and Kung Fu is ultimately about finding inner balance as well as learning respect. This respect extends to your body, to others, and to the world around you. In other words, even though practicing Kung Fu involves punching, kicking, and self-defense, there is much more to it than just physical movements. The practices and philosophies involved in Kung Fu will help you throughout life by enabling you to realize your strengths and weakness, helping you to discover your goals, and by giving you the means to reach those goals. The Tao of Kung Fu is a philosophy of life that is a collection of teaching for living in harmony with nature. Because of this, age does not matter, and Kung Fu can be a part of your life at any stage of your life.
A dancer knows how to dance with a sword; a warrior knows how to fight with a sword; but only the master of martial arts knows how to conquer his enemy with an invisible sword: one whose tip is made of wisdom, whose edge is made of integrity, the back of humbleness, the handle of honesty, and the tassel of passion.
