Wu Qu Quan Chou
10th November 2005
Another year has passed since the last annual Southern Shaolin Wu Shu Convention was held. This year, Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai was accompanied by Yap Boh Heong, the eldest of the grand master's three sons. History was created in this year's event as the Technical Committee underwent a change of Chairmanship. After five years, Grand Master Yap handed over his position as Chairman to new blood: Master Kim Han of England. Grand Master Yap, however, is still available as Advisor to the Committee. Master Kim Han is a fellow brother of Grand Master Yap under the same Si Fu Chee Kim Thong.
The event proved to be interesting and exciting for enthusiasts of Chinese martial art as various masters explained and demonstrated their forms and techniques to a very keen audience. In the old days, one would have to be sworn in as a student of a particular master before he or she was allowed the chance to listen to the explanation of the techniques and observe the techniques. The only other time such techniques were displayed was when the person was on the receiving end of it!
