As a traditional martial arts progeny, I’ve benefited from many years of training and experiences. I developed a strong and healthy body and mind while also maintaining the purity of a deep cultural background of traditional martial arts. This was strengthened in the martial arts academy. Healthy body gives me a foundation to maintain my devotion to my martial arts career. The purified mind makes allows me to never lose confidence when becoming frustrated, makes me have a calm mind instead of being proud or sluggish when making achieving goals, makes me not lose myself, but keep improve when I feel lost, and makes me have a calm and clear mind to make right choices when facing the cross road of my life and career.
As a martial arts progeny and beneficiary, my wish is to spread Kung fu to the world. My working purpose is to help every kung fu practitioner to achieve their martial arts dreams. My responsibility is to make every practitioner achieve their martial arts goals. My dream is to let all people who can feel the appealing and unique power of martial arts benefit from it.
All martial artists in the world are a family. Let’s work on spreading traditional kung fu and promoting cultural treasure.
