    Because Kung Fu should be preserved and taught to those who are cut out for it

    To maintain my own health and continue to improve my skills

    Because our master ran a great traditional school and it was our haven

    To produce trained people to maintain the school and it's functions

    Because I was too far away from life in the years I competed most with it and now wish to posess it more since I have time from struggling with it less

    To share as many and as much of all the good things of kung fu as any person can handle - may the well never be dry

    To facilitate those who choose the monk's way and life, whatever their life and circumstances are

    To preserve the inner as well as the outer and all the teachings that often get neglected in the pursuit of martial prowess, which is a little empty and weaker without them

    .....and I needed something to do

    I never wanted to instruct, it was just a way for me to get more lessons.
