Welcome to your new journey into the realm of Kung Fu!
White the seed is planted
As a white sash your mind should be like the color of your sash, pure, clean, a blank slate ready for training. I urge you to leave any pre-conceived notions about Kung Fu behind and truly let your mind, body and spirit meld with the training.
- Notebook – Keeping track of your training and writing down details so you remember the moves, intentions and applications is very important. Want a head start? Get a copy of my notes for White Sash so you can really focus on your training right away!
- Oak Bo Staff – Your first staff in Sil Lum Kung Fu should be heavy. The weight teaches you control and helps condition you for future training, which is why we use a dense wood like oak. Your staff should also be as close to your height as possible, not too short or taller than you. A few inches shorter is ok. For example a person who’s six foot two inches tall is fine with a six foot tall staff. Also the staff should be straight (not tapered) at both ends. You can find these at your local martial arts supply store or online through places like Karate Mart
This is not a requirement but I do recommend purchasing a kung fu uniform. They are designed to give plenty of room for your legs and torso during training and help with your mindset. It is my intention to eventually put on classes in person and live stream portions of them. For this I would like my students to look their best. In our system the buttons/frogs on the front are important, so for white through green sash your frogs are black. Check out Tiger Strike for your uniform. Also I recommend getting a white sash and appropriate training shoes if you don’t like training barefoot. The shoes I like have a closed toe, are very light and have a single shoelace at the top made by Adidas. I recommend the black/white combo because at blue belt your gi top changes from black frogs to white! This way your shoes will be in style for a long time!
I am honored to be your guide through this world I love so much. It is my strong hope that you will find enjoyment and fulfillment in our training together! Stay safe and work hard…see you inside!
