SiFu Donald Mak New Year Message to IWCO Students
Dear IWCO Students,
Looking back at 2014, it was a steady year for IWCO’s development despite the global political and economical unrest. Each of our schools has its own internal growth. International and national competitions, seminars and grading examinations were continuously held in different regions and schools to promote Wing Chun and increase the standard of our students. The biggest competition is of course the 2nd European Wing Chun Cup in May 2014 in St Petersburg, Russia. We shall continue to organize the 3rd European Wing Chun Cup in 2015.
Our school participated the 2nd Ip Man Cup World Wing Chun Competition held in Foshan in November and got excellent results. 13 medals (6 gold, 3 silver and 4 bronze) had been won and our team is the top 3 in terms of number of gold medals won.
2014 is the year full of challenges. Although we may financially loss something, we still have our good health and beloved family. We should be thankful to what we presently have. Challenges will never stop. More emphasis should be placed on making use of Wing Chun to help our mental development. Fighting ability is the by-product and minimum that we can get from Wing Chun. It can give you much more than a fighting system and thus learning its spiritual aspect is our way to go in future. Next year is the Year of Goat. It represents benevolence and love. We should keep our kind heart to perfect ourselves.
Lastly, I would like to thank you for your earnest support to the school and wish you a happy and very prosperous year 2015, good health, good Wing Chun and all your wishes come true.
Yours sincerely,
Donald Mak
