    I am very happy for you Frank and others are doing just as well as Futsan, so lets cut out the BS about ours and your history stuff and get on with promoting CLF if you are proud of the art.

    Wow, Futsan WAS the most famous CLF school in southern China! ...and now?
  4. Frank, You just want to make your lineage bigger...

    Frank, You just want to make your lineage bigger and better. You can do it with action, there is no need to and you can't do it through history.
  5. There were branches everywhere, in Hong Kong, in...

    There were branches everywhere, in Hong Kong, in Guangzhou, in Sun Wui and in Kong Mun etc. They all taught a similar curriculum, there was nothing extra special about Futsan over others.
  6. So you are doing this for the honor of your...

    So you are doing this for the honor of your lineage at the detriment of other lineage, how honorable!
  7. So you have more history and more stuff and that...

    So you have more history and more stuff and that means more money and more prestige to you, see what I mean about changing history to get what you want?
  8. I believe we all have been "civil" about our...

    I believe we all have been "civil" about our history, except you and that is why I am here to provide an alternative point of view so it will not get out of hand and keep the balance.
  9. But without Yuen Hai, you won't have a teacher of...

    But without Yuen Hai, you won't have a teacher of his lineage. The same without a God, we won't have a religion. Know your source when you drink your water Frank, it is that simple.
  10. Do publish your book Frank, and we can evaluate...

    Do publish your book Frank, and we can evaluate it properly, I look forward to it. You might even force some of the Chan family descendents to open up their archive and that is not a bad thing. So...
  11. God is an inspiration, so were these teachers you...

    God is an inspiration, so were these teachers you mentioned who suppose to have taught Choy Fook in earlier times. This is what I meant by correlative association, it is not meant to be literal, do...
  12. Frank, the mess never stops and CLF history still...

    Frank, the mess never stops and CLF history still remains vague, not because it is not clearly documented, but it is because of money/prestige and politics. We should raise ourselves above this and...
  13. God is supposed to have written the Bible, is it...

    God is supposed to have written the Bible, is it literally so or correlative association at work to express the idea that it is written by many authors inspired by God over time? It is not meant to...
  14. Frank, Both hypotheses being the deity and...

    Frank,
    Both hypotheses being the deity and being the Ming emperor for Hong Sheng are not supported by the door couplet, which clearly explained the meaning for this particular chosen name by Choy...
  15. Frank, You are not familiar with Chinese...

    Frank,
    You are not familiar with Chinese correlative/associative thinking, when they say 10,000 they don't mean 10,000 exactly, they mean multitude of things. Using these famous names from different...

    Frank,
    I did my research in King Mui and you did yours in Futsan, which is closer to the source? Who is misinformed? Let readers make their own judgment.

    The confusion with a deity's name was the precise reason why Chan Heung used a different name of the same sound when the his schools spread outside of King Mui but he kept it for the ancestral school.
  18. Frank, Choy Fook is the Green Grass Monk if you...

    Frank,
    Choy Fook is the Green Grass Monk if you understand Chinese literature and philosophy. To have "fook" or to have prosperity is to be free of attachment and desires, just like the green grass...
  19. Frank, Your research still sucks, this is just...

    Frank,

    Your research still sucks, this is just one example: Chan Heung did not choose the name himself, the “Great Sage” name for the Ancestral School in King Mui was given by Choy Fook, who also...
