Ali, 14 anos depois, Si Sok Queiroz se qualificava como Mestre, e para mim foi muito emocionante acompanhar aqueles momentos desta pessoa que foi muito paciente comigo quando comecei...
Life goes by so fast, I increasingly realize the obvious. But sitting there in a hall of Windsor Plaza Hotel in Copacabana (photo), I remembered when I started in Ving Tsun at age 15. My favorite tutor at that time was the Si Sok Ricardo Queiroz. So I chose him to be my Gaai Siu Yan (presenter) at the first ceremony I attended, and a year and a half later to be with me again when I went to Cham Kiu.
There, 14 years later, Si Sok Queiroz was qualifying himself as a Master, and for me it was very exciting to follow those moments of this person who was very patient with me when I started ...
QUALIFICAÇÃO DE MESTRE DE
CEREMONY OF RICARDO QUEIROZ
(O hotel não era esse!)
(This was not the correct hotel!)
Essa noite especial para Si Sok Queiroz e sua esposa, Sra Flávia Brambilla, teve muitos personagens essenciais que foram muito celebrados através das palavras de Si Sok ao microfone nos agradecimentos. Mas poucas pessoas lembraram de um rapaz, que não estava lá, mas que merece ser mencionado: O atendente do Hotel Windsor Atlantica.
Eu parei meu carro numa vaga mágica em frente a praia do Leme que mal pude acreditar, e caminhei até o primeiro hotel onde li "Windsor". Entrando lá, fui até a recepção onde o atendente a cada passo que eu dava, me observava com olhos cada vez mais cerrados parecendo já advinhar a pergunta que faria: "Oi amigão! Boa noite! Eu vim pro evento do Ricardo Queiroz, Moy Yat Ving Tsun." . O rapaz tomou ar, deu 2 batidinhas com os papéis que segurava em cima do balcão de marmore e disse: "Não seria no Windsor Plaza Senhor?"
This special evening for Si Sok Queiroz and his wife, Mrs. Flavia Brambilla, had many essential characters that were very celebrated through the words of Si Sok at the microphone. But few people remembered a boy who was not there, but deserves to be mentioned: The clerk of the Windsor Atlantica.
I stopped my car in a magical spot in front of Leme beach wich I could hardly believe it, and walked to the first hotel where I read "Windsor". Getting there, went to the front desk where this attendant every step I took, was watching me with eyes clenched increasingly looking as he already guess the question I would make: "Hi buddy Good evening! I came for Ricardo Queiroz event, Moy Yat Ving Tsun. ". The boy take a deep breath, and said: "I think it is at Windsor Plaza Sir?"
Did not quite understand his lack of patience at first while I headed for the right hotel, but after hear testimonials from several people who went there by mistake later, I realized how much he had to answer the same question that evening. So here is this mention to the anonymous reception guy from the wrong hotel!
Depois de ser muito bem recebido por alguns To Dai (alunos) de Si Sok Queiroz que aguardavam no Hall do Hotel e ser conduzido a magnifica cobertura, lá estava eu na abertura da Cerimônia de Baai Si(discipulado) na qual Si Sok Ursula Lima, Mestre Qualificado da MYVT Rio de Janeiro conduziu.
After being very well received by some To Dai (students)of Si Sok Queiroz waiting at the Hotel's Hall there I was at the opening of Baai Si Ceremony (discipleship) in which Si Sok Ursula Lima, Qualified master of MYVT Rio de Janeiro led.
Família Kung Fu (梅基魯士, Moy Ke Lo Si) e puderam ter a honra de receber Si gung e Si Taai(foto) presentes em sua Cerimônia.
Peter Lamarão and Eduardo Esteves that night became the first disciples of
Kung Fu Family (梅基魯士, Moy Ke Lo Si) and might have the honor of receiving Si Gung and Si Taai (photo) present in your ceremony.
In the photo we see Pedro Lamaão offering tea to Si Sok Queiroz. In Chinese culture, this ceremony establishes a lifelong bond between master and apprentice, or in Cantonese, between Si Fu and To Dai. The establishment of this link is through the offer of tea and acceptance thereof by Si Fu.
Não só por isso, mas o vínculo Si Fu-Todai (Mestre-Aluno) que se torna vitalício numa Cerimônia como essa, pode ser estendido aos familiares do Si Fu. Bem como, da parte do Si Fu, o zelo pode ser estendido aos familiares do praticante. Com certeza, uma relação para a vida...
The wife of a Si Fu is called Si Mo. When she is present in the ceremony of Baai Si, she also accepts the tea, as we see the gentle Eduardo Esteves, who I could know better a month before, offering tea to his Si Mo, Ms Flavia Brambilla.
Not only that, but the Si-Fu Todai (Teacher-Student) bond that becomes a life-long ceremony as such, can be extended to the family of Si Fu. As well, the part of Si Fu, the zeal can be extended to the practitioner's family. Surely a relationship for life ...
Si Gung (photo) and Si Taai also accepted the tea from Pedro (photo) and later Eduardo. The "Gung" (公)in Si Gung means "grandfather" and the "Fu" (父)in Si Fu means "Father". It features the traditional Kung Fu as an art that relies on strategically Confucian concepts of "family" in the case of Kung Fu in Cantonese "Mun" (門). So conceptually, to become a disciple or "Dai Ji" (弟子) the practitioner becomes "son" of his Si Fu. Since "Ji" (子) means "child" in Cantonese, or suffix added to names to put them in please, can also be interpreted as "son." That may sound exotic to our culture, but this symbolic family relationship, assists in the process of learning in Chinese classical culture.
(Si Gung é o primeiro a reverenciar os ancestrais do Ving Tsun antes de abrir a Cerimônia de Qualificação de Mestre de Si Sok Queiroz)
(Si Gung is the first to revere the ancestors of Ving Tsun before opening the Qualification Master Ceremony of Si Sok Queiroz)
Quando falamos em relação vitalícia estabelecida na Cerimônia de Baai Si, o próprio termo vitalício se torna limitado tendo em vista de que mesmo quando alguém com quem nos relacionamos profundamente falece, nossa relação continua com esta pessoa através de um processo memorial. Não seria então a relação Mestre-Discipulo para sempre?
Pelo respeito aos ancestrais que nos possibilitaram usufruir do conhecimento presente nesta arte marcial, a reverência a ancestralidade, outro aspecto confuciano esta presente nas Cerimônias Tradicionais.
When we talk about lifelong relationship established in Baai Si Ceremony, the lifetime term itself becomes limited in view that even when someone we relate deeply dies , our relationship continues with this person by a memorial process. Would not then the Master-disciple relationship last forever?
Respect to ancestors that allowed use of this knowledge in this martial art, reverence for ancestry, another Confucian aspect is present in Traditional Ceremonies.
Ving Tsun brothers for over 20 years of Si Sok Queiroz, like Si Sok Homero(in the foreground) and my
Si Fu Julio Camacho was present watching this great moment.
The brother and mother was there very moved as we see in this photo.
Si Sok Ricardo Queiroz received from the hands of Si Gung and Si Taai all symbols that qualify a person as a Master of Moy Yat Ving Tsun Martial Intelligence in Brazil. As the Jiu paai wich we see in the photo above.
The Si Sok Rodrigo Giarola from MYVT Belo Horizonte School(photo), is the artist behind this Jiu paai (annoucement board). For me an amazing art that I make a point of mentioning, because it already sounds hard to draw on a sheet of paper, how skilled you need to be inscribe ideograms wood! It is sublime!
Official photo of acceptance of the Masters and the consent of Si Gung and Si Taai for Si Sok Queiroz from now compose the Board of Masters of Moy Yat Ving Tsun Martial Intelligence. The Blog congratulates Si Sok Queiroz , his wife Si Sok Mo Flavia and his whole KF family For the Night and all the affection directed to those present that night ...
Quando chegar o dia em que eu me qualifique como Mestre, é assim que imagino minha Cerimônia, mas não saberia se Harrison Ford iria topar entrar comigo...
When the day comes that I qualify as a Master, this is how I imagine my ceremony, but do not know if Harrison Ford would walk with me ...
