  • The collapse of China Culture

    For thirty centuries, China had remained impenetrable to any civilization other than its own; It was undoubtedly superior to that of all the peoples who surrounded it, including Japan as well as the peoples of the Indies. It is not surprising, therefore, that China should be the center of the universe. Without the stimulus of cultural exchanges and commercial competition, the Chinese could only stagnate and in the nineteenth century they maintained a technical level similar to that of the Europeans five centuries ago. The episodic relations with the Europeans could teach nothing to the subjects of the Middle Kingdom, who affected a superiority disdainful of the "barbarians." French only, coming soon english...

  • Choy li fut (cai li fo) disciples Chinese Martial Arts

    Chan Heung had 18 original Choy Li Fut disciples, known as the eighteen Lohan (十八羅漢). They were named to honor the Bodhidharma, who is traditionally considered to have taught the Shaolin monks the methods of the original Eighteen Lohan hands, in 527 CE,[27] which some consider the predecessor of Shaolin martial arts.[28] In 1848, the original eighteen started branching out to teach Choy Li Fut throughout Southern China. The first disciple to teach Choy Li Fut outside of King Mui was Lung Ji-Choi 龍子才, who opened a school in the town of Xunzhou in Guangxi. Soon after, Chan Din-Foon 陳典桓 initiated the first Hung Sing Choy Li Fut school in Foshan. Some of the other original eighteen disciples who promoted the new kung fu system were: Chan Din-Yao 陳典尤 in Nan Hai 南海; Chan Dai-Yup 陳大揖 in Guangzhou 廣州; Chan Din-Sing 陳典承 in Zhongshan 中山; Chan Mau-Jong 陳謀莊 in Panyu 番禺; Chan Din-Bong 陳典邦 in Dong Guan 東莞; Chan Din-Wai 陳典惠 in Kaiping 開平; Chan Din-Jen 陳典珍 in Taishan 台山; Chan Sun-Dong 陳孫棟 in Enping 恩平; Chan Din-Dak 陳典德 at Heshan 鶴山; Chan Dai-Wai 陳大威 in Zhaoqing 肇慶; Chan Sing-Hin 陳承顯 in Xinhuicheng 新會城; Chan Yin-Yu 陳燕瑜at Jiangmen 江門. And admirable tasks were performed by Chan Dai-Sing 陳大成, Chan Din-Seng 陳典勝, Chan Mau-Wing 陳謀榮, and Chan Din-Gung 陳典拱, who taught Choy Li Fut in twenty-six villages in the King Mui 京梅 area.
