Old Black Sash Reaches Out

Hello Ma'am,

Happy Chinese New Year to you, Sigung and everybody at the Temple .  I'm sorry that I haven't reached out more often.  I hope that you and Sigung are doing well!

Kung fu still rocks!

Chin Sifu Sara,

Sihing Scott


Hello Sihing Scott!

What a great surprise it was to see your name pop up on my e-mail!

In fact, I was just thinking of you the other day as I have the little wooden asian plaque that you gave me hanging above the doorway in the school that reminds me of you and my old Franklin school team.

I hope you have been getting the things you want and need out of life.

Sigung and I have been well – this Chinese New Year was a great success and we are very proud of how all of our students are progressing with their kung fu studies as well as the strong brotherhood that is bonding more and more as each year passes.

Sifu Gary brought the Worcester team again this year – 20 people! It was great to see the schools intermix and find they are all part of one big kung fu whole.

It is too true what you say – kung fu still rocks! Let me know if I can help you get back in the mix. You are always welcome.

Check out our new website when you get a chance!

Take care and thanks for getting in touch!

Wow and what a super nice surprise to see your email response this morning!  I'm glad to know that you and Sigung are doing well.  I'm also glad that Sifu Gary and school are also well.  I want to reach out to Sifu Gary soon.  What an honor for you to have hung the plaque in your shcool.  Thank you!  I hope to see it one day. 

I have gotten a lot out of life but it's not 100% fulfilled. I feel like I could have gotten so much more if I continued training.  Stephanie and I definitely made some changes.  Most of them for the best.  Hopefully I can find it within myself to get back in to the mix and try to regain what I feel has been lost.  I appreciate your support as you and Sigung have always been very supportive!  I've thought about you and and Sigung and kung fu on a regular basis pretty much since the last time I attended school.  Kung fu helped me succeed to this point.  It helped get me on track roughly 15 years ago but I've lost something and it doesn't feel the same.  I think It's the brotherhood, support and friendship that I miss.

I've always told Stephanie that we should continue our training and pursue our passion.  For Stephanie kung fu is horse back riding.  When I was training kung fu, I was in the best shape of my life.  It helped me immensely at work and everyday life.

I'm glad you mentioned your new website.  I've been on your website many times over the past couple years. Seeing It gives me strenghth and to know where I came from. It's nice to see kungfu buddies and new students.  It helps me remember and aspires me to train.  Some times training had to be done at work or in my head.

I want to tell you that I really love you and Sigung's editorial, your story, your truth..They are huge and inspiring.  Wow...You guys are amazing!  You have put so much hard work in to your training throughout your life, doing what you love and I truly,truly envy that!  I am glad that you did it for all to see.  I definitely have to see it again and again!  I remember some of those places too.  It brings back fond memories.  Really nice work ma'am!

It was great catching up with you ma'am. Thanks for your continued support.  I'm slowly putting myself back together mentally and physically so that one day I can feel like a worthy black sash

Sincere regards Sifu Sara,

Sihing Scott

Go Back
