= OUR MOTTO =
.
"Wisdom, Benevolence, Sincerity, and Bravery"
These four words comprise the motto of  Master Bok-Nam Park's Pa Kua Kung Fu School  and   the  Ch'iang Shan Pa Kua Chang Association.    They  represent  four  important  ideals that  Lu Shui-Tian  believed all  Pa Kua Chang  (Ba Gua Zhang)  practitioners  must cultivate and embrace.
.
  • Wisdom - because without wisdom, a student will not be able to grasp the depth of Pa Kua Chang and will not be able to develop his or her understanding to a high level.  Wisdom is required to make progress; the student must "think deeply" and research thoroughly.
.
  • Benevolence - because without benevolence, a student's pride, ego, or arrogance takes control.  The Pa Kua Chang practitioner must remain humble, show respect to everyone, and promote goodwill towards others.  And, Pa Kua Chang must never be utilized in an improper or unjust manner.  Benevolence is required and grows with the cultivation of wisdom.
.
  • Sincerity - because without sincerity and a serious commitment to training, a student will not make sound progress and will not be able to develop his or her skill to a high level.  The student must dedicate himself or herself to the art, and must honor the heritage of the Pa Kua Chang of Lu Shui-Tian and Master Park.  Lu Shui-Tian stated that "the instructor does not teach the student; the instructor merely presents knowledge and ideas -- the students, in truth, teach and train themselves."  Sincerity is required and grows with the cultivation of wisdom and benevolence. 
.
  • Bravery - because without bravery, a student will lose his/her skill in a confrontation.    A student needs to remain calm and clear whether facing an opponent in a sparring session or in a serious fight, and must learn to conquer and control his or her own fear.  To understand Pa Kua Chang completely, the student must study and research the fighting side of Pa Kua, as well as the health side.  Through the cultivation of wisdom, benevolence, and sincerity, a student's bravery comes from the heart and is not derived out of ego or arrogance.  The Pa Kua Chang fighter must do what is just and what is required when a confrontation is necessary.  And when a confrontation is necessary, the response must be immediate and without hesitation.
.
Knowledge and skill come at a price and with an obligation.  The obligation is responsibility -- the responsibility to use one's knowledge with wisdom and benevolence, to execute one's skill with justice and bravery, to uphold one's heritage with honor and sincerity, and to present one's achievements with accuracy and humility.  This is what we believe and this is what we promote.
