    The broad spectrum of the EWTO

    Dear Readers,
    I am writing these lines to you from Bella Italia. Here, at this Italian seminar with my SiFu, GM Prof. Keith R. Kernspecht, on an old estate in the gentle hills of Tuscany amidst cypress trees, pines and wheat fields swaying in the breeze, you almost feel that you are back in ancient Roman times as in the film Gladiator, if it were not for the modern electricity pylons dotted around the area …

    When talking about "KungFu" you must also think of "India"

    For patriotic reasons, the Chinese like to emphasise the aspect of Taoism when talking about the origins of KungFu, as Taoism is a Chinese philosophy.
    Chinese masters and authors also like to play down the perhaps even greater importance of Buddhism, as this teaching of course came to China from India.

The main reason is undoubtedly that thanks to modern medical care, the number of old people is steadily increasing.

    The best job in the world

    "The best job in the world" is what somebody wrote on my Facebook page.
    Yes, he is right. I chose my own "job" for myself: I can practice a lot of WT, I get out and about a lot, get to know a lot of people and am never bored.

    What has water got to do with WingTsun?

    When I heard that I was being allowed to write the editorial, I was staying at Hotel Giessbach by Lake Brienz in the Bearnese highlands. This is where I take a few days rest each year (after all the travelling I do for WingTsun), firstly to restore the work/life balance and secondly to come up with new ideas.
