  • "Doc, give respect to 'Da Sifu'"!

    I am just curious why the link to the Houston Temple takes you to another Monk's site. I am a student of Bei Shaolin Kung fu in Harlingen, Tx (http://beishaolin.com/ My Sifu gets training from DaSifu Shi De Shan, who was trained at the Shaolin Temple. He of course passes it along to us and we also have seminars with DaSifu himself. Would it not be fair that his name and link be added to your website? He did open this temple with another monk, but the other has since opened another school in Houston. Please give DaSifu the respect and add his link to your website. You can research it if you like. http://www.houstonshaolintemple.com/news.shtml
    I'm speechless.

    Hmmm. Whatever happened to the word sigong?
    Show me a man who has forgotten words, so that I can have a word with him.

      Well Dao, I find "what happened to the word sifu" more interesting here. In fact, I also find interesting the fact that if you go to the other school's website, the word "sifu" is used at least nineteen times on the very first page.

      "Sifu" is not exactly the correct word, but, then again, who am I to educate someone who commands me to show another individual respect. (By the way, I don't give my respect out lightly....).

      I think the following two posts are relevant:

      It's emails like this, emails that I find slightly derogatory in nature, that makes me wonder why I even bother with this anymore.

        Or if you're deadset on attaching a title to someone's name, you could use "Lo si" or "Lao tz" I'm not sure about the latter, but they should mean "teacher".

          I think you spell it "lao shi", at least, that's how I learned it. It means "teacher".

          This "lao" is kind of interesting; "Lao ban", not sure if I spelled ban right, means "boss". Xingwei always used to call me that. I had asked him why, and he informed me that I was the boss, because I paid all the money....

            Lao Ban = Boss. Respected Boss; literally "Old leader"
            I do not have a psychiatrist and I do not want one, for the simple reason that if he listened to me long enough, he might become disturbed.

                  Lao is indeed fun. Actually, there is a whole article on it on the Wikipedia for laohan such as myself.

                    They all call him that in Houston because he was "Da" shifu and Yan Feng was Xiao shifu.


                    The thought of shi de shan as "big" is entertaining at best but i see where they came from.
