Look mom, no wires!

Hello everybody, it’s been a while since my last entry.  I guess it’s because I’ve had nothing interesting to share.  Today is no different, so I decided to pick out something from my past that might be of interest.  Before fighting for the camera, I spent my days fighting in front of the mirror at my father’s martial arts school in Chicago.  While on vacation last year, I decided to put together a small reel of some of the stuff that we did at the school.  This gave the students and instructors there a chance at the “youtube” limelight and I believe it was a good way to help promote our little academy. I was also hoping that the bits of sparring and mitt work in the clip would give us an opportunity to show others in the martial arts community that traditional Chinese martial arts are not just for show and can be used for combat.  Most of the senior members of our schools have fought successfully in full contact tourneys around the US.|  各位好,很久沒寫博了,因為沒什麽有趣的事情跟大家分享。今天也沒什麽不同,所以我決定聊聊以前的趣事。在投身電影之前,我在芝加哥父親開辦的武術學校裏教授武術。去年的假期,我決定把學校的東西整理成一個集錦放在youtube上,這給了學生 和老師在網絡的潮頭浪尖展示自己的機會,我認為也能很好地推廣我們的學院。在剪輯裏我還放了一些拳擊和格鬥的內容,我想給武術界中認為中國傳統武術只是花拳繡腿的人看看,中國武術是可以用來格鬥的。我們學校的高手們拿過美國各項武術比賽的冠軍。

As for other things, my life is going well.  Have an overseas movie project starting soon, it’s all hush-hush, but I promise to sneak some info on here as soon as we start rolling.  Also, in a few days I will have grown exactly a year older than I was on the 16 th of last year, leave a message and give me some love |  我的生活很順利。我有部海外電影就要開拍了,這些都是高度機密,但我保證,一旦開拍,會在這裏透露一些消息給你們。另外,幾天後的16號,我又要整整大一歲了,給我留言祝福哦

Happy Belated! My birthday is also on the 16th. It's such a nice number and our birth number, 7 is a mystical number. Yes, I should trust my gut. One good thing - it prompted me to sign up for a self-defense course starting next Tues. Supposed to be good for real life situations. I was accosted on a subway platform in a nice neighborhood in NYC and I was beating the guy on his shoulder with my umbrella. Even then, I was being "polite". The cops said that I should have gone for his throat (with my fingers) even though it would be fatal. I have to train to let go of that niceness, I guess.

Excellent idea to showcase the academy, not only does it show off the skills of the fighters, but it also promotes the school too. Have a nice birthday tomorrow.
