  • The Space In Between

    The Space In Between

    To improve your practice in any endeavor, quit focusing only on points A and B. Learn to improve the space between them... The transitions. This is really where the magic, science, art and beauty of a practice lives. Anyone can do points A and B- ANYONE. But what separates the master from the novice is understanding how things move, how they unfold, how they evolve and how one thing flows seamlessly into another. If you can do this you will discover the space in between- a space full of time, energy and precision that you never knew existed. If you cannot, all of your studies, time, and effort will be of minimal value after the beginner level has been achieved. Most will burn out or ....

    Am I Too Old to Start?

    The student approached the old master and asked, "Master when is the best time to learn kung fu?" The master, with a subtle smile said, "10 years ago." The student somewhat perplexed thought the answer over and then asked another question. "Master, when is the second best time to begin learning kung fu?" With a bright smile, and knowing eyes, the old man replied, "Right Now." Many times throughout the year I will get an inquiry with the following question, "Am I too old to start training?" The simple anwer is almost always, "No." In our 12 years of teaching Wing Chun in the greater Pittsburgh area we have had many students begin their training in their 60's and one who actually started ....
