Choy Li Fut Couplets and Poem
For Chan Heung's picture:
From choy li fut, he is the founder;
He received the real arts from the root system of Shaolin
For the choy li fut altar:
Graceful staff moving like the dragon swings the tail;
Strong fist releasing out as the tiger raises it head.
For the school front door:
Fists (kuen) punch out depending on the body are using the right power;
Staff (gwun) coming you must watch out by using the energy of your eyes
Another one for the front door:
For the talents of Hung's people, must take from the scholar's work;
To win (Sing), who must be good at the martial arts.
Choy Fook advice to Chan Heung's poem
The dragon and tiger met as
the wind and the cloud.
My disciple, you must take good care of your future.
To revive the arts of Shaolin,
Don't let the future generations forget about this teaching.
