Ancient art of Gung Fu taught in Kamiah


     Over 400 years ago in central China, a woman by the name of Ng Mui taught another women the art of Gung Fu. That woman was Yim Wing Chun who is famous for being the founder of the Wing Chun martial arts system.

     Wing Chun has been called “the most efficient style of Kung Fu” by Inside Kung Fu magazine. Those who know of Bruce Lee should know he was the person who brought Wing Chun to the United States. In Seattle, Wash., Bruce Lee taught a man by the name of Joseph Cowles, who is recognized as the founder of the martial arts system call Wu Wei. Wu Wei Gung Fu is a non-classical, closed discipline of combat-oriented teaching and techniques.

Spring harbingers? - A group of Bohemian Waxwings make a brief puddle stop to rehydrate near Kamiah. Waxwings often drink water or eat snow in winter, since the sugar in their fruit diet tends to dehydrate the birds through an osmotic effect. About 100 birds were traveling together earlier this week. Their winter irruption is likely a result of searching for fruit, which is a favorable sign that spring could be coming. One of the largest irruptions in Europe during the winter of 2004–05 involved more than half a million waxwings in Germany alone. In 1908, an American flock (200–300 ft.) wide was noted as taking several minutes to fly over. “Bohemian” refers to the nomadic movements of winter flocks. It comes from the inhabitants of Bohemia, meaning those that live an unconventional lifestyle or like that of gypsies. (Information gathered from Wikipedia.) Photo by Gina Jorgensen
