That morning, wearing a blouse I wore on Si Fu's 40th birthday. I looked in the central rearview mirror and straightened my cord that was a gift from my Si Dai Carlos Antunes. I ride the 5th gear and accelerate a little more. I was wearing shoes gave to me by my Si Si Hing Cledimilson . On the radio, in volume a little louder than usual, it played "Angel of the City" by Robert Tepper.
Devo dizer, que Si Fu divide sua carreira agora nos seguintes marcos: 1995, 2003 e 2017.
O vento batia em meu rosto e quando dei por mim , junto do final da música, chegara ao meu destino...
One more morning I was born and as I crossed the cable-stayed bridge towards the Peninsula, where I would have coffee with Si Fu, my heart beat stronger, because we will have an incredible year!
I must say, Si Fu divides his career now in the following milestones: 1995, 2003 and 2017.
The wind beat on my face and when I found myself by the end of the song, I had reached my destination ...
Os 8 novos Mestres do Clã Moy Jo Lei Ou
Moy Jo Lei Ou Clan 8 new masters
Todos sentaram-se após prestarem as reverências e se prepararam para ouvir Si Fu falar algumas palavras. Ele começou explicando com detalhes, porque 2017 é um ano histórico para o Clã Moy Jo Lei Ou e para sua carreira. Alguns tomaram o que foi dito com surpresa. Eu já estava ciente, mas acho que em algum nível não consigo acreditar ainda. (risos)
After breakfast, we all went to the Mo Gun, it was the day of officially opening the year's activities , paying respect to the ancestors of our Lineage. We call this process "Opening of the Sam Toi." Sam Toi "is the ancestral table of a place.
We all sat down after bowing and prepared to hear Si Fu speak a few words. He began by explaining in detail why 2017 is a historic year for the Clan Moy Jo Lei Ou and for his career. Some took what was said with surprise. I was already aware, but I think at some level I can not believe it yet. (laughs)
Si Fu spoke of the importance of this year when he turns 48. For in Chinese culture, a person's life is divided into twelve-year cycles having the age of 60 as the most important, for that is when you complete five cycles of 12. So, this year Si Fu will enter into his last Cycle of these five.
Alguns se emocionaram outros foram pegos de surpresa, e nós, os irmãos mais velhos, ficamos felizes com a notícia!
Si Fu (photo) made some invitations to some of those present that morning: João Pedro, was invited to start the procedures for the invitation to join the Moy Jo Lei Ou Family. Another desire expressed by Si Fu that morning was that a group of people who were there, began the Baai Si process: Fernando Xavier (photo), Clayton Meireles, Fabiano Granado (photo), Bruno Brandão and Pedro Oliveira (photo).
Some were thrilled others were taken by surprise, and we, the older brothers, were happy with the news!
Primeiro, Si Fu deixou claro , sua disponibilidade irrestrita para todas estas pessoas ao longo do ano: "Podem me procurar" - Disse ele. A seguir, os convidou a iniciar o processo de Titulação de Mestre, através de um projeto individual.
Si Hing Cledimilson e Guilherme de forma evidente se emocionaram bastante, e eu acabei indo junto.
There is a term in English that is "I didn't see that coming" ... I think I can say this from the other announcement / wish that Si Fu did / expressed to 8 disciples of our Clan.
First, Si Fu made it clear, his unrestricted availability to all these people throughout the year: "You can come to me anytime" - Said he. He then invited them to begin the Master Title process, through an individual project.
Si Hing Cledimilson and Guilherme were obviously very touched, and I ended up going along.

The eight new future masters are, in order of seniority:
