I watch my own videos often. I think it is important to review your work and attempt to make improvements. In my own head I make perfect sense. However, when I review my content, I am made more than aware of the short comings of my communication skills. There is a reason why most people do not voice their thoughts and ideas on YouTube. They don’t want to come off looking like an idiot. I know – I often watch my videos thinking “fuck I sure am an idiot”.
So why do I do it? And why have I been doing it for so long (since 1994 at least)? Most complex ideas or concepts are difficult for even good communicators to convey. Noam Chomsky also warns us against the eloquent speaker (think Obama). The challenge of communicating the art of Wing Chun is monumental. I hope to at the very least be one of many that attempt to extol the profound virtues of our art in relation to attaining our humanity. Ip Man, Chris Chan, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Lee, Robert Downey Jr., Nicholas Cage, Donny Yen and many many more have committed a great deal of their lives being exponents of Wing Chun. It truly takes a village.
Enjoy this playlist and refer back to it as I add new videos. I am open to your ideas and advice on how I can make my videos better and more beneficial to you. Even if I am unable to fulfill your requests right away, I keep your feedback close to heart and mind. As I acquire more time and resource I will be more capable of putting the required effort towards making great videos and music that will entertain, educate and inspire… me, as much as you! lol 😆 – Sifu Z
