    There are a couple of Sifu Wong's personal senior disciples who have chosen not to be instructors (at this time) but would be fully qualified and certified to do so. Otherwise the list should show all Shaolin Wahnam instructors.

    Dear Instructors, just a Q for the Essence of Shaolin.

    After constant daily practice of the EOS set I'm still wondering why, or who to, do we do the Shaolin Salute.

    The 3 Directions that Im speculating are;

    Pastmasters :
    Lai Chin Wah (Uncle Righteousness)
    Ho Fatt Nam
    Choe Hoong Choy
    or
    The Venerable Hui Neng, the sixth patriarch of Zen

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
    James

    Aaahhhhh!

    EOS Shaolin Salute : Why ? Who To ?

    Interesting speculation James and why not ?

    In my opinion as to the ..

    1) Why :

    a) Standard salute form before a set .
    b) Practise of a combat application pattern in different directions : chin na or defence-cum-strike
    c) A pattern to train form, force , flow and speed in 6 harmonies
    d) Zen or Mind training : total awareness of everything ( people , terrain , ambience , etc ) in all directions during kungfu practice ...this would include awareness of eg hidden opponents , wind direction ( eg throw sand at opponent down wind ) , sun rays ( eg glare from reflected light from bladed weapons to gain advantage in combat )

    2) Who to :

    a) To spectators if in a performance
    b) To opponents if in friendly sparring or actual combat
    c) To your Sifu if she/he is observing your kungfu
    d) To shadow partner
    e) To no one in particular because you do it as part of kungfu technique and skill training and not to salute

    Best wishes and with Shaolin Salute in all directions
