BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR TEACHERS!
Without your SiFus and Masters to teach and guide you your path will be much more difficult. Your teacher - may he be a SiFu, Master, Guru - Whatever his title he has a lot of knowledge for you to benefit from! This is not limited to Martial Arts but life in general.... Think about how long it takes to get any credible title in Martial arts... Every teacher I have ever studied under has devoted his life to LEARNING! Not just Kung Fu but LEARNING! In ALL areas of life, we have much to learn.
