Meeting Grandmaster Yang Mei Jun 楊梅君
In 1984 I booked my holidays, I was travelling to China to meet Grandmaster Yang Mei Jun 楊梅君.I travel to Hubei 湖北 province, Wuhan 武漢 City, East Lake 東湖, where she was living at that moment. In that time travelling inside China was not so easy I took a plane from Guangzhou廣州 to Wuhan and then took a bus to East Lake. Finally, I arrived and I found a building in beautiful environment around a peaceful lake, which I could tell had very good Qi. Back then my Mandarin was not good, but I was still able to speak quite a bit as I had picked it up by watching a lot of 1970s and 80s Kung Fu movies which all were mandarin, even Bruce Lee’s movies were Mandarin. However in China the Mandarin accent was quite different from the movies I had seen so I needed to relearn a lot of it.
I entered the building and introduced myself and asked to see Grandmaster Yang Mei Jun. A young student brought me to a room. As I walked in I could smell the fragrance of a flower it was a bit like an orchid, but sometimes also like Jasmine. Grandmaster Yang Mei Jun was sitting on a sofa and looking straight at me, which made me nervous, it looked as she could see through me and knew everything about me!
