Ng Mui Si Tai 五枚師太 – Part 26
Grandmaster Ip Man’s Satue in the Ip Man Memorial Hall, Locun
Wing Chun 詠春 open the letter and looked at the bottom, it was signed by her Sīfú. Ng Mui Si Tai 五枚師太 wrote, “My dearest student Wing Chun, meeting up was fate. I don’t have any other students you are the only one. I watched your family being bullied by the gangsters and this gave me an opportunity to teach you and I particularly wanted to teach this new Kung Fu style that I had created. You are kind, loyal and very smart. You have picked up my Kung Fu very quickly and have gained a deep understanding so fast. I didn’t expect this but this has made me very happy. When you left with all the skill to return home and fight the gangsters I was watching. I was always nearby and I was so impressed with how you planned, prepared and took action. You are very structured and organised and I know you will be alright in the future. Now you have to take care of yourself and your father. I hope one day you will find somebody to pass the skill on to and keep developing it. It is time for me to go as there are more things in the country that I need to do. Maybe someday I will visit you again. Yours sincerely, Sīfú Ng Mui.”
After reading the letter Wing Chun cried and as the tears flowed from her eyes she realised she may not see her Sīfú ever again, but inside she hoped, that perhaps someday day in the future, fate would let them see again.
