NTD Television International Chinese Martial Arts Competition: Shi Zhengzong, Praying Mantis Grand Master
NTD Television, August 16, 2016––NTD Television’s 5th International Chinese Martial Arts Competition in 2016 is seeking out and reviving the traditional martial arts practice methods.
Passing down tradition, martial arts are considered the Dao, and virtue is first. Many different schools’ highly skilled martial artists come together to again reveal the essence of martial arts.
[Shi Zhengzong, Praying Mantis Boxing Grand Master]:
“Traditional martial arts are akin to the artisan, while new martial arts are like the gardener. Furthermore, new martial arts do not speak of systematic instruction. These new physical exercise-like martial arts are not truly martial arts. So what we will talk about are the genuine martial arts that are crystallized with ancestral wisdom. Only inside there are the true things that are worthy of your study–your thorough, intensive study, and cultivation.”
