THE GREAT TIMES ARE BACK!
So you could see me standing there on the stage! It was not the stage that made me happy inside. It was the "butterflies inside my belly", it was the fear of something going wrong, some funny man raising his hand to say that none of it worked. It was the preparation that preceded all the action on stage, it was the conversation that I knew we would have at the end. It was my happiness, for eleven years later, to be again participating in a public demonstration ... The good times, they seemed to have returned ...
a primeira demonstração pública que estive à frente.
Com a participação dos queridos irmãos Kung Fu: Cris Chaves, Roberto Viana, Thiago Silva e Carlos Antunes. Nos apresentamos no Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio. A platéia era formada por profissionais e praticantes de outras artes marciais.
In a fight, the act of blinking is very dangerous. It is the moment you blink that the punch comes in and everything is finished. However, I believe that even more dangerous is to blink while one is living. In the blink of an eye, a decade passes by. And so it has been eleven years since the first public demonstration I was at.
With the participation of the dear Kung Fu brothers : Cris Chaves, Roberto Viana, Thiago Silva and Carlos Antunes. We performed at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio. The audience was formed by professionals and practitioners of other martial arts.
2007...Que saudades do meu Mp4 preto!
Inside I was very nervous at the time. But I knew that my nervousness could not be greater than my responsibility on that late afternoon of any Saturday in 2007 ....
2007 ... How I miss my black Mp4!
Jaqueline Tergolina, minha discípula e Robson Brum, membro do Núcleo Méier estiveram presentes na segunda semana. Assim como Bruno Brandão com seus familiares.
So many years later, just me and Cris Chaves, with a few extra pounds and a few more strands of white hair have been in the demo in 2007 and at the demonstration that took place at the "Sabores do Mundo" cultural event in the biggest shopping mall in the Northern Zone of Rio. The others: André Almeida, Clayton Meireles, Rodrigo Moreira, João Santos have entered the Kung Fu Family since then. My two To Dai were also present: Chris Chagas and João Guttemberg.
Jaqueline Tergolina, my disciple and Robson Brum, a member of the Méier School were present in the second week. Like Bruno Brandão with his relatives.
The demonstration was quite different from that at the Museum of Modern Art in 2007. Because in a much more challenging scenario, we should not only demonstrate the technical part of the martial art we practice but also promote it and finally entertain those present during the minutes on stage.
We had two opportunities on that stage. By better understanding the logic of the event, we reformulated everything for the second presentation. João Santos was on the stage both times, just like me. In the first he shared with Cris Chaves and in the second opportunity with Rodrigo Moreira. The others took care of other previously decided tasks.
Aqueles dois Sábados para mim, foram como jogar futebol na chuva,na rua e descalço novamente! E isso, não tem preço!
You can call me an incurable romantic! And that holds a potential that sometimes gets me fumbling when I use it badly ... But on those two evenings, I experienced simple moments that filled me deeply, as a practitioner of Ving Tsun, with my Kung Fu brothers .
Those two Saturdays for me, were like playing soccer in the rain, on the street and barefoot again! And that has no price!
