More than a decade later, the Jacarepagua neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro receives once again a School of Moy Yat Ving Tsun! Because it was officially opened the Freguesia School. Directed by Master Felipe Soares and his wife Elisa Wanderley (photo), the School received the visit of Grand Master Leo Imamura and the Grand Moy Yat Sang Clan plus guests for this very remarkable event for all of us.
Inauguração do Núcleo Freguesia
Moy Yat Ving Tsun Freguesia School
Me lembrou um pouco o excelente documentário "Needle Trough Brick" que mostra o "Mo Lam"(Circulo Marcial) na Malasia, e numa determinada cena um dos Si Fu entrevistados leva os repórteres a um shopping popular, e desde o sapateiro até o peixeiro, você pode encontrar Si Fu escondidos entre eles fazendo funções do dia-a-dia. O Si Fu entrevistado diz: "Essa é uma terra de dragões escondidos e tigres abaixados..."
I was accompanied by four To Dai (students) [photo] that Saturday morning when I headed the new school. Because we arrived early, we decided to eat something close to the site. And I was thinking at that moment, how many different perceptive, that Official Visit of the Grand Moy Yat Sang Clan Leadership was understanding, considering that several family leaders with their respective To Dai were heading there. Each living a "Kung Fu Life" differently.
It reminded me a bit the excellent documentary "Needle Trough Brick" that shows a "Mo Lam" (Martial Arts Circles) in Malaysia, and a particular scene of a Si Fu interviewed who leads the reporters to a popular shopping, and from the shoemaker to the fishmonger you can find Si Fu hidden among them making functions of day-to-day. The Si Fu respondent says: "This is a land of hiddem Dragons and Crouching Tigers ..."
(Mestre Julio Camacho segura a placa ancestral chamada "San Juen Paai" e é destacado pelo Grão-Mestre Leo Imamura diante de todos os presentes como o grande responsável por todo o trabalho que está florescendo no Rio de Janeiro com diversos Núcleos abrindo suas portas, com Mestres que praticaram sob sua tutela por mais de 20 anos.)
(Master Julio Camacho holds the ancestral plaque called "San Juen Paai" and he was mentioned by Grand Master Leo Imamura before all present people there as the great responsible for all the work that is flourishing in Rio de Janeiro with severalnew schools opening their doors, with Masters who have practiced under his tutelage for more than 20 years.)
Durante a inauguração, meu Si Fu(foto), segurava o "San Juen Paai", objeto que você pode conhecer mais clicando (AQUI). E foi Si Gung quem pontuou a importância de Si Fu neste novo momento do Rio de Janeiro, por ser a pessoa com quem cada um dos Líderes de Família no Rio praticou em algum momento de sua trajetória. Possibilitando, um cenário tão rico assim... "Uma terra de tigres abaixados e dragões escondidos..."
During the inauguration, my Si Fu (photo), held the "San Juen Paai" object you can learn more by clicking (HERE). And Si Gung who pointed out the importance of Si Fu in this new moment of Rio de Janeiro, being the person who each one of the Family Leaders in Rio practiced at some point in his career. Enabling a scenario as rich as well ... "A land of crouching tiger,s hidden dragons..."
Si Suk Fernanda(foto), entrou na Família Moy Yat Sang junto de Si Suk Felipe. Acessaram todos os Domínios juntos . Não por serem irmãos , mas por sintonia e boa sorte. Também fizeram o Baai Si na mesma Cerimônia. Na Cerimônia de Titulação de Si Suk Felipe ela teve participação direta , e dessa vez, sua presença nos mostrou os fortes laços que existem entre eles.
Another important presence that morning, in addition to the parents of Si Suk Felipe Soares, was his sister: Si Suk Fernanda Neves.
Si Suk Fernanda (photo), entered the Family Moy Yat Sang alongside with Si Suk Felipe. They accessed all levels together . Not because they are brothers, but because their tuning and good luck. Also they made the Baai Si in the same ceremony. In Si Suk´s Master Ceremony she was directly involved, and this time, her presence showed us the strong bonds that exist between them.
The traditional red ribbon has his tie untied always in the inaugurations of the MYVT Schools of Rio de Janeiro, this time it was pulled by the parents of Si Suk Felipe and also by his wife and co-leader of the Family Moy Fei Lap. Si Gung and Si Suk (photo) also pulled the tie that established the official start of the Freguesia School as a Certificate School of Moy Yat Ving Tsun Martial Intelligence.
The Freguesia School has much zeal in every detail. From the choice of the room, to the furniture are arranged. All passed the careful attention of the Family Leaders of Moy Fei Lap Family (photo). So the first time I was there, I felt very comfortable. On this Saturday morning, I visited this Mo Gun for the third time, and I could see that all shared the same sentiment. Like when Si Suk Ursula at lunch mentioned that even the local paint made it very enjoyable.
Tirei alguns minutos para perguntar a ele naquele dia mais tarde, sobre como se sentia vendo tantos Núcleos abrindo ao redor do mundo. Com um sorriso, Si Gung mostrou certa neutralidade quanto a esse processo, como se entendesse que tudo faz parte dos desdobramentos dos potenciais em que nos apoiamos dia após dia.
Looking Si Gung position the "San Juen Paai", which is the ancestral tablet of the successive generations of Ving Tsun Paai. I remembered when he did the same at the Meier School.
I took a few minutes to ask him that day later on how he felt seeing so many schools opening around the world. With a smile, Si Gung showed some neutrality to the process, as if he understood that everything is part of the potential of developments that support us day after day.
Particularmente eu sou uma destas pessoas. Vejo em Si Suk Felipe uma pessoa que simboliza essa ideia de "habilidade construída" através do Kung Fu. E me sinto feliz e honrado de ter presenciado sua evolução até aqui(Ao menos o que me foi possível perceber). E estou muito ansioso para saber o que nos espera no futuro...
Parabéns querido amigo.
Si Suk Felipe (photo) does not have a blog or a youtube channel, and maybe that's why you're reading that does not know him as well. But members of the Lineage Moy Yat around the world know about his value as Disciple and Practitioner. And just so everyone believes in his value as a "Si Fu".
Particularly I am one of those people. I see in Si Suk Felipe a person who symbolizes this idea of "built ability" through Kung Fu. And I feel happy and honored to have witnessed his evolution so far (at least what I could perceive). And I am very anxious to know what awaits us in the future ...
Congratulations dear friend.
The Disciple of Master Julio Camacho
