Today the Chin family welcomed Sifu Sharif Anael-Bey of Yee’s Hung Ga International Kung Fu Association and Sifu Aaron McKillip of Lee’s Summit Academy of Martial Arts to Queens NY! Both Sifus traveled great distance specifically to meet with GM Chin. After a hearty Cantonese dim-sum breakfast together, GM Chin and his wife Kooi welcomed them back to their home to continue an exchange of philosophies and stories. While sipping tea around the kitchen table and talking about the art of Zhong Xin Dao / I Liq Chuan, Sifu Sharif referenced our system as “The Ghost in the Machine” by Oxford philosopher Gilbert Ryle to describe the Cartesian dualist account of the mind–body relationship, while Sifu Aaron added that this was the “thing” that he was searching for and wasn’t present in other arts he encountered. Both Sifu’s were enthusiastic about learning more about the system, and how they could use this system as a tool in order to help further optimize their own practices. Sifu Sharif is looking to establish a stronger relationship moving forward with our organization.
