Mas veja bem: Belo Horizonte foi o mais longe que fui até hoje... quer dizer, eu estive na Pavuna também.
This little boy wearing whit t-shirt is my cousin Leandro, and wearing blue T-shirt is me. I used to spend my vacations in July with him, 'cause he lived in Recife (north of Brazil) and always when he came to Rio we play togheter. His mother took me to a lot of places that I would never be. But I never went out from Brazil.
Ehh... a camisa folgada me engorda hein!
As usual, I arrived at MYVT Meier Studio earlier than the time of the beggining of the classes.look... the t-shirt is large, I´m not that big..hehe
Este treino seria um pouco diferente dos demais, pois o jovem Raphael Evaristo faria sua última sessão de Siu Nim Tau antes de embarcar para os EUA.
Porque pelo jeito as crianças vão mais longe hoje em dia nas férias de Julho.
This trainning will be a little different, 'cause Raphael(12G VT) is going to the US to spend his vacations with his brother, Rodrigoin Washington,DC.Man.. As I see nowadays the children go more far during JUly vacations than in my time.
Raphael(12G VT) usually is the last one to arrive at the Ving Tsun Sessions, but this day something very interestining happened: Lucas(12G VT) missed his ride, so Raphael arrived first and finally we would spend some time togheter.
Sempre é falado um pouco da cultura do Ving Tsun. E ainda que pareça muitas vezes desnecessário, aprender e entender os ideogramas e a nomeclatura da arte, ajudam muitas vezes entre outras coisas, a entender a natureza do que você está fazendo.
No man! I dont say to the young ones stay on their knees! hehe
The board was too low.We always talk about Ving Tsun Culture. Understanding the ideograms is always a way to understand the nature of the movements.
Ele ficou de joelhos porque quis..rsrsrs
I´m not that bad!He stayed this way 'cause him wanted too. lol
Os dois treinam.
Indeed was a very good afternoon 'cause we never had opportunities to spend some time togheter. And last June he completed 2 years of trainning and so do I. 'Cause when I´m with him, the two of us are trainning.
Lucas got a Taxi to train... His will is strong! hehe
The Siu Nim Tau is the first level of Ving Tsun. It is practiced always in "Yi Ji Kim Yeung Ma", but there are some reasons for that. But even this way, O Siu Nim Tau asks for a lot of patience from "Martial Guys" and "Young ones"... 'cause they always say: "Siu Nim Tau has no leg work? I want to move!"
But I fell very touched by their will to focus all the 2 hours in the same standing position without complain, without ask nothing about "Move".
I remember this day very clear. It was March,2000 . I was in High School and I was also trainning in Siu Nim Tau level. I was just completed 16 years old, and I wanted very much "to finish" the Siu Nim Tau, 'cause for me that was very boring. So everyday I missed classes at school to go train at Mo Gun, but everyday I train the same thing: LAP SAU!
Para mim, pior do que estar no Siu Nim Tau na época, era ficar sempre no Lap Sau... E cada vez mais eu matava aula para poder ir de manhã e a noite no Mo Gun, mas eu nunca saia do Lap Sau...Aí nesse dia eu matei aula e fui pra praia!rs Eu e minha mochila que parecia um band-aid gigante haviamos sido descobertos pela minha mãe, e se aparecessemos no Mo Gun em horário de aula, ela havia pedido para avisar...rsrs
For me, worst than be in Siu Nim Tau, was just trainning Lap Sau. And I missed many classes to go over Lap Sau, but finally my mom find out my plan, and if me and my "band-aid shape bag" appears again at Mo Gun in time of school she would know. So I went to the beach.
As you see, Lucas(12G VT) and Raphael(12G VT) are smarter than I was at their age. They simply accept the Siu Nim Tau the way it is.
So , even having to get better on the "radicals" of the ideograms..hehe I dont have any doubt that if they keep this quality of focus, they will go far than I ever be.
Have a nice trip Raphael(12G VT)!
