Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
Quantity =/= Quality. I don’t have the patience to be sarcastic and witty this time around because I’ve been talking about this subject with friends lately, but though we have many people completing college, it doesn’t mean that they’re educated. You go to class and learn things to get your degree, and unless you’re in a specialized major such as medicine or engineering or something like that, you’re really not “utilizing your education.” We go to college nowadays because that’s what’s expected of us, it’s like the minimum now. It’s still difficult, don’t get me wrong, but finishing college doesn’t mean we’re any more prepared. I just graduated and I’m terrified lol. I swear high school students in other countries are more “educated” than some of our college graduates.
Anyways, I actually kind of agree with the “old people” on this one. The digital age may not necessarily make us dumber, but I’m pretty confident in saying it has bred some of the most socially inept, awkward beings to roam the earth.
I almost died at this one
Post with 1 note
I just got notice from a friend in Hong Kong that grandmaster Tsui Sheung Tin passed away.
Just some background info, Tsui Sheung Tin was born in 1933, making him 81 this year. He was one of yip man’s top students, along with Leung Sheung, Lok Yiu, and a few other notable seniors. I was taught that he actually had a bit of boxing background in his younger years, which along with his focus on the first form, siu nim tao, led to the style that his branch of wing Chun is known for today. Of course, the boxing bit is just something passed along to me through word of mouth along the lineages, so don’t quote me on that.
Who is Tsui Sheung Tin to me? He was my great-grand-sisuk (I am under the Leung Sheung lineage). Growing up I’d hear stories of the top masters and every so often I’d get to hear their philosophies and theories, as well as applications. Tsui Sheung Tin was a name I’d always hear, as he earned the nickname of “king of siu nim tao” while Leung Sheung was known as the “king of biu ji”. He emphasized a strong foundation within the first form, which led to his solid horse and hand positions. Though he had considered himself retired, he still loved to teach.
Teach he did, into his old age. My condolences go out to those who knew him personally, to those under his lineage, and everyone else in the wing chun community. Tsui Sheung Tin will live on through his legacy and all he’s contributed to the art and to the community.
Being involved in Wing Chun since the age of 12, I’ve gotten to see a lot and hear a lot over the years. Today a prominent member of our community moves on and a chapter in our legend closes. Yet, the legacy lives on.
So let’s pay grandmaster Tsui Sheung Tin a moment of respect, celebrate his accomplishments, and continue to grow and develop as a whole. Best wishes to everyone.
Courage is the most important of all virtues, because without it we can’t practice any other virtue with consistency.
