In a talk given by Chee Kong Yeung, a Teacher of Pak Mei Kung Fu, the speaker explained that being a practitioner of a martial art is to be a custodian of an Art and of Wisdom. This involves a sort of reverence towards our ancestors and the noble intention of passing down the teachings without distorting them in any way.
The evening was well attended and many philosophical ideas were explained and discussed with a receptive audience who had many questions.

Martial Arts can be a tool for transformation that requires awareness, reflection and the ability to unlearn and re-learn.
