9 YEARS AS A DIRECTOR OF MYVT MEIER SCHOOL PART 2
After three years in the room of Medina Street, the first address of the MéierSchool,.It seemed that 2013 was indeed the year when we came across our first slope. But we were in front of it to climb it, not to descend it. In this way, one of the most prosperous years of the Méier School in terms of human quality, it ended with a golden key for me, during a celebration of my very special anniversary in terms related to the Kung Fu Family and Si Fu.
Eu e Si Fu viajamos juntos para São Paulo algumas vezes para estarmos com Si Gung, frequentava sua casa toda a Sexta a noite para a prática do "Baat Jaam Do" e conseguia também ter uma participação muito significativa nas atividades do Núcleo Barra.
Si Fu and I traveled together to Sao Paulo a few times to be with Si Gung, I went to his house every Friday night for the practice of "Baat Jaam Do" and managed to also have a very significant participation in the activities of the Barra School.
No Núcleo Méier, tínhamos já um grupo de praticantes muito apaixonados e entusiasmados. Mas sem dúvidas, dentre todos já se destacava André Guerra, hoje Diretor do Núcleo Barra.
At Méier School, we already had a group of enthusiastic practitioners. But without a doubt, André Guerra, now Director of the Barra School, stood out among all of them.
Andre, who started in 2012, spent basically the afternoons and nights with me, receiving and working with each practitioner who came to the Méier School. As at that time, the student's age range was very low, most of the practices were related to school schedules. So it was not often that we spent three to four hours alone in the Mo Gun watching documentaries, reading documents or doing anything that I thought could contribute in some way to André's development, since there I was representing our Si Fu .
Because of this juncture of Andre's dedication and Si Fu-oriented scenario on my 2014 birthday, when figures such as Clayton Meireles (In the right corner) were already taking their first steps in the Kung Fu Family, André had become a reference in the Méier School.
Apesar dos "furos" na organização, mais uma vez o Núcleo Méier mostrava sua força com um time muito especial de mobilizadores: André, Fabiosa, Rodrigo Moreira, Clayton, e muitos outros que faziam daquele lugar, uma fábrica de valores humanos que hoje assumem posições de liderança no Clã Moy Jo Lei Ou...
In 2015, we had the unprecedented "Combat Study". This study happened at Méier and Barra Schools. Rodrigo Moreira, who had joined the Family a year earlier, was the organizer. Despite the "holes" in the organization, once again the Méier School showed its strength with a very special team of mobilizers: André, Fabiosa, Rodrigo Moreira, Clayton, dear Erika Carvalho and many others who made of that place, a factory of valuable practitioners who now take leadership positions in the Moy Jo Lei Ou Clan ...
Informally, but always with a lot of heart. We sought to organize studies, meetings and any other activity that would add even more knowledge to the practitioners of the Meier school, such as the "Kuen Kuit Study".
Inspired by events we had in the Moy Jo Lei Ou Family in the early 2000s. I held meetings to talk about milestones in the history of Ving Tsun or about our Lineage. In the photo above for example, we met on the occasion of the anniversary of Patriarch Moy Yat. To remember his stories.
I enjoyed all these moments, but what made me happier, without a doubt, was the "Birthday Celebration of the Month". Because of such times, we had the opportunity to honor people who dedicated themselves intensely and often invisible in the day to day of the Mo Gun. Kung Fu brothers like Ailton Jordao always made a point of preparing something with much love. This is a characteristic of him. And perhaps because of the bonds that strengthened in moments like this, that my Kung Fu brother Roberto Viana, at that time practicing Meier school, always praised the warm atmosphere that we were able to create.
Para tal, as Quintas dormia no Mo Gun para fazer as edições de madrugada. Foram muitas às vezes que recebi o apoio dos irmãos Kung Fu nesse projeto, inclusive com a querida Erika Carvalho que quase sempre levava uma sopa para mim.
In that same year, the Méier School entered its first major financial crisis. In order to try to recover it, the help of the Kung Fu brothers was fundamental. In addition, I gave up my other job to dedicate myself fully, and from there came the idea of creating a YouTube program called "Kung Fu Culture" which had three seasons and will soon have a fourth.
For that, On Thursdays slept in the Mo Gun to make the editions at dawn. Many times I received the support of the Kung Fu brothers in this project, including the dear Erika Carvalho who almost always took a soup for me.
Mas eu também não sabia, que tudo relacionado à direção iria mudar no ano seguinte, quando abriria minha Família Kung Fu... A Família Moy Fat Lei...
When the year 2015 ended, it's true that I was still indebted to the forehead (laughs). But I was very happy also at the time of my birthday: I had been qualified as a Master, I was engaged and my relationship with Si Fu was in a great moment. Plus, I felt so much love from everyone around. Faces of other times and new practitioners were present.
But I also did not know, that everything related to the direction of the school would change the following year when I would open my Kung Fu Family ... The Moy Fat Lei Family ...
