Interview with Sifu Poon Seon Seoi in Guangzhou

Last January we were lucky enough to participate in an interview conducted by the newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily (南方都市报 Nánfāng Dūshì Bào) to our Sifu Poon Seon Seoi 潘顺遂, in which we recounted some experiences of our common story; Sifu talking about teaching of Choy Li Fut 蔡李佛 to foreign students, and we about the difficulties we encounter when coming to China to learn from him.

Among other things, we talked about how we met Sifu when he came to Spain to teach some courses in 2017; about the importance of Martial Arts today; about how, in Spain, there is an obsession with the learning of forms or routines in Kung Fu, which are taught without having come to understand its essence; or about the difficulties we encounter in communicating with Sifu because of the language.

Sifu also remarked during the interview that when I contacted him from Spain to tell him that I wanted to come to Guǎngzhōu 廣州 to learn from him, he thought it was just talk, and confessed that he was very surprised when soon I contacted him again saying I was in Guǎngzhōu.

Below we share some screenshots of the original article in Chinese, published on the platform 今日头条 (Jīnrì Tóutiáo), and which can be accessed by clicking here; and below is the video with the interview, with part of the audio in English.
