Also before 1975 at 883 6Ave. N.J. temple was visiting. Mr.Lee had senior A(N.Y.) and Senior C.(N.J.) take the bow. And, they did nothing! Not one hand technique, not one leg action as if they both had killing power at the time.) Senior C was in the prime of his form, why be on the defense at all? After a while of no action Mr. Lee bowed them out. Yeah, great fighters indeed. Next up was senior D(the N.Y.Temple terror) and senior E (the original drunken monk of N.J. temple). Senior E, nobody's fool went straight to floor in defense; senior D stalked him. Senior D was like Secretariat the horse, slow to start, but once he went off....Sensing that blood would be spilled Mr. Lee stopped D and E. Again, no engagement what so ever. Great fighters, right? I fault senior E for not being able to be soft and control his power and close the gap faster. Next Mr. Lee called senior F(N.Y. great technician) and senior G(N.J. a tall guy), finally some contact! But alas only single bow-legs by senior G that embarrassed senior F. Senior G has the reach advantage; senior F, speed and better techniques. Again after all of this no comment from Mr. Lee. I don't really remember us discussing what we saw. Maybe we were in shock. But I do remember Mr. Lee asking me: Luis why is it that when you fight someone below your level you do well; and when they are at your level or above you are not smooth? Actually, I did pretty sometimes at my level. So, this question was not really meant for me only, I think. Moral, Dr. Delves likes them, attack, probe, look for the blood, take them out; take control; get hit lose face: Be a real fighter. Respect the man, destroy his strength. From my conversations with Mr. Lee he was always the exact opposite of us; he wouldn't give a man a chance to breathe, less of all to think.


We had moved from W. 30th St. to 883 6Ave between 30th and 31St. on the west side of the Ave. Gimbles was across the street. Hard to remember now; sometime before 1975. It was Seniors/rank holders class. Mr. Lee called up senior A and senior B to do some fighting. Senior A was to my left, senior B to my right. Mr. Lee bowed them in, set them up and Kaishi(開始), in Mr. Lee's Mandarin. Then senior A and senior B did Nothing! Nothing, senior A moved his hands but not his stance; no attack no engagement. Senior B closed hands and went back to fist way a la Tai Mountain style. After a while Mr. Lee stopped the match and bowed them out. No comment at all from Mr. Lee. I don't remember any of us talking about what we saw. I wish Vernon had asked Mr. Lee. Now as one who is past his prime, my take: Senior A was an older married working man, who was never a great technician; but one good strategist. His "Ghost" hand had been injured and he was not in the best shape. For him to be defensive is defensible(lol) slightly so. Senior B was in the prime, but abvious to respecting of seniors A past glory. Again, Mr. Lee made no comment; not of us asked either. We held Mr. Lee in awe then. The moral:Attack, probe look for the weakness, get hit, lost face if you must. This is fighting, fighters must get hit, fighter must lose to learn and win another time. They were more or less evenly matched, there was no reason for no contact no engagement. More to come.....


However, once most of the seniors and lower rankers got into the fight zone we were all a force to be reckoned with, Five punches, Eight kicks, stepping, turning and shifting, blocking and countering in 4/8,directions on three levels we could be hell! We drew blood and broke bones too!


The Temples, N.Y. and N.J. were started in 1967, that means that in 1975 no one had ten years of Gongfu in there bones; and given the small community of Gongfu we found ourselves in, it would take time for us to learn some very important lessons. Of all the lessons, the greatest fight seems the fight against time and life. Health is wealth, guard it with all your tools, live forever and have students all over the world.


Had a great conversation with my KFWS brother Ralph Macchio. Looking forward to meeting up in November.


This is the time where we coordinate our NYC trip. Always to short but great to see family and martial arts family as well.

A few notes on Lion Dance..
Old school involved various puzzles to test your knowledge and skill. I hope these skills are taught and preserved for future generations.
I admit my knowledge in this area is quite small and my highest respect to those who continue its teachings within their martial arts.
