Grand Master Leo Imamura's inspiring words about professionalism and leadership.
À todo o momento vivemos transições ininterruptas, e como a maioria dessas transformações são "micro-transformações", acabamos por não perceber quando elas ocorrem. Por outras vezes, podemos sentir que elas estão acontecendo. E me percebo num momento de transição como Si Fu muito forte. E talvez por isso, essas palavras tenham me tocado tanto...
It was supose to be an afternoon of much learning about Siu Nim Tau in the MYVT Freguesia School , Mo Gun of the Moy Fei Lap Family, Kung Fu Family wich is led by Master Felipe Soares. It turns out that with just a few minutes of seminar, I was surprised by Grand Master Leo Imamura's strong and inspiring words (Photo) about what it is and how to be a martial arts professional.
We experience uninterrupted transitions all the time, and since most of these transformations are "micro-transformations," we do not realize when they occur. At other times we may feel that they are happening. And I find myself in a very strong moment of transition as a Si Fu . And maybe that's why those words touched me so much ...
Si Gung também fez comentários sobre a fraqueza que carregamos quando em primeiro lugar, escolhemos sempre "negar". E como a relação "Si Fu-To Dai" é importante nesse aspecto - "...Quando alguém nos diz algo, primeiro nós negamos para depois ouvirmos...O Si Fu é a pessoa que você elegeu para ser a única que você não vai negar primeiro. Você primeiro vai ouvir e só depois negar...Se for o caso..."
Si Gung spoke of the importance of working hard to understand what we are doing and what our social role is. He commented on the ancestral table, and how the relationship to the "invisible efficiency" of this ancestry can help us learn how to better understand ourselves with the "not apparent" - "A leader needs to be able to feel things in the air. .." - He said.
Si Gung also commented on the weakness we carry when we first choose to "deny" first. And since the relationship "Si Fu-To Dai" is important in this respect - "... When someone tells us something, we first deny it and then listen ... A Si Fu is a person you have chosen to be the only one you will not deny first. You will first listen and only then deny ... If it is needed to ... "
But what really touched me was yet to come: Si Gung at one point began to share with those present very strongly and assertively about his view of the martial arts professional: "... I recently had the opportunity to talk about 'professionalism in martial arts' at the MYVT Copacabana School. It was very important to talk about it, because people want to work with martial arts, but they're not really prepared. Being a martial arts professional is being a warrior ... " - He said that, with the tone of the voice of those who lived those words: "... There is no possibility of being a martial arts professional without being a warrior. There are people who if in the end of the month, is not able to pay the bills , can not even sleep ... The person is so afraid that can not even sleep .. . ... "- Continued. - "... I've been working with martial arts ....considering the time I'm joined the Family, it's thirty years ago ... Thirty-one years as a professional ... And you know how my month starts ? "- He gestured to a number with his right hand and laughed, seeming to notice the surprise in some of the eyes:" ... But no problem, I'm going slowly ... "
Àquelas foram palavras que me tocaram, e junto de outras mais que ouvi nas primeiras horas de Seminário, me fizeram refletir muito não somente sobre o trabalho que venho realizando. Mas principalmente, sobre a maneira pela qual realizo esse trabalho.
"...Você paga o jantar para o Si Fu, porque da mesa toda, ele é o único que está prestando atenção em tudo, para ser capaz de prover a Vida Kung Fu. Agora, se o Si Fu está ali só para comer, ele tem que dividir a conta também.." - Disse Si Gung.
Si Gung ended his speech by commenting on the importance of asking ourselves if "we have the stomach" to perform this function.
Those were words that touched me, and along with others I heard in the early hours of the Seminar, they made me reflect a lot not only on the work I have been doing. But mostly, about the way I do this work.
"... You pay dinner for your Si Fu, because of the whole table, he is the one who is paying attention to everything, to be able to provide Kung Fu Life. Now, if Si Fu is just there to eat , he has to pay the bill too .. "- Said Si Gung.
