Today was a great day. Firstly it was my father’s Birthday (although he passed away recently – I will remember and love him always), but also the day I was awarded 3rd TG Level from my teacher Dai Sifu Wes Hussey.
I have been training for this grade for just over 18 months and it’s taken a lot of hard work to get to.
The grading itself was a challenge! I fought till I dropped and could barely breathe; that was just round 1; it went on, and on, and on, for many rounds until exhaustion. You dig deep, maintain the fighting spirit; but always with humility and respect.
Wing Chun is a part of my life, but not for the fighting element of it. I train and learn because I love it. Training over the last 20 years has taught me a lot, I know it will teach me more over the next 20.
Perseverance and commitment will always get you there.
