We have the honor to have our
mysterious guests and friends coming from different countries including
Instructors Andy Low and Alvin Wong from Malaysia, and Instructor Andrew Kung
from Australia. Surely they had given a great surprise to Master Lau.
Our training started at 3:00 with
several degree certificates being presented to our members. Thereafter Master
Lau gave us a meaningful speech and reminded us to be responsible to ourselves
as a black belt of the ITF. He pointed out the spirit of Taekwon-Do and emphasized
the importance of Courtesy, which is the basic which we must never forget, no
matter we are a color belt or a black belt. He also urged that we should always
strengthen our skills as well as knowledge of the ITF in order to develop
ourselves in an all-round manner.
During the training we bought a
birthday cake for Master Lau to celebrate his birthday. We sang birthday songs
together and enjoyed the cake while watching demonstrations from different
Instructors. We were all shocked by the excellent performance of Instructor
Alvin Wong and we have learnt a lot from all the seniors.
The day ended with a birthday dinner
with our coaches and friends. It was such a warm and delightful day for all of
We would like to take this opportunity
to express our deepest thank you to our Master David Lau for his selfless
contribution to the ITF and all of us. There is a Chinese saying "Love
well, whip well", which we would use to describe him. Because of his love,
he always harshly blame for our mistakes and errors. Because of his care, he
can remember the name, personality, level and attitude of every single member
in the Council. He acts like our father, taking good care of us. He acts like
the ITF tree, covering and protecting us, and stewing the seeds of ITF, passing
on to the next generations.
We may not be mature enough today but
we are learning to be. We are not perfect now but we are aiming at it. We might
have done many things wrong but we are sure that there is one thing correct -
we have chosen and we are following a great Master!
Thank you very much and, again, Happy
Birthday Master Lau!
