As this Gregorian calendar is coming near to an end… We here at Enter Shaolin are feeling pressed for time to cross some more goals off our to-do list and not just for Enter Shaolin, but also personally.
This past year had a lot of learning curves and epiphanies for Sifu Larry and I. We are excited to know the majority of you really love what we are doing currently with Enter Shaolin. That excites us because we have so much more we want to do with Enter Shaolin both online and offline!
All that is stopping us from doing so right now, is the money required and the time. What this really means is we (Larry and I) have to find a way to build Enter Shaolin faster, so we have the funds to upgrade equipment and hire a fabulous Kung Fu loving outsourcing team, so we can then build Enter Shaolin faster and rinse and repeat.
After all we’ve got to improve our front end funnel, make a better on-boarding process for members, create solo courses plus exercise programs for Udemy and DVDs, podcasts, more of my training recorded and released to you, mini training clips and tips created for Instagram, work shops, classes, seminars, a complete site redesign, custom clothing tailor made to our specifications and quality control, certification retreats, material in different languages plus transcribed, and, and, and… I think you get my drift. LOL!
Since we don’t have more money, that means going back to working extra hours and burning the midnight oil on occasion. It also means looking at how we can be even more efficient with our daily to do tasks inside and outside of Enter Shaolin. Each minute counts, and they add up fast! There’s no time to waste, and we have no choice but to find ways to be more effective and efficient.
We love what we are doing with Enter Shaolin and want to be able to give everything we just mentioned and then some to you family. I guess that’s why when people ask how do we know we will be here in a year or two? I think the only way we won’t be is if the world ends or the internet vanishes!
That’s because it took me years of persistence to even launch Enter Shaolin and we know how much patience, persistence, time, money and love we have and will continue to put into this. This is our passion, this is our mission and this is our legacy. And I must admit we are kinda stubborn and have a refuse to quit, can do attitude when we know we are suppose to do be doing something for the greater good. We just can’t help it!
While it has been a serious uphill battle since we began this journey (including all the years it took to convince Larry to convince Sifu Phu to share his awesome knowledge online) with plenty of surprises and challenges along the way… We keep moving forward bit by bit.
Sure there are days where we take two steps back and days you can find Larry and I banging our head on the desks or raising our hands up like… “Why God, why!?” All to take one step forward again do a happy dance and breathe a sigh of relief! Phew! We will just call that doing the cha-cha for short. 😉
The important thing in life is not how many times you fall down, it’s how many times you get back up and learn the lesson. As long as you learn the lesson and grow from your experiences, you are moving in the right direction!
And maybe you can relate to some of the above challenges and are also buckling down to get more done in less time. What goals are you looking to square away before 2016? What are your plans for 2016? Write us in the comments section below and let us know. We are looking forward to growing with you in 2016 and beyond. 🙂
If you have some challenges or would like some help or suggestions on how to find more time to train, etc., write to us below or email us here.
In hopes to help others become more efficient with their time, I will be sharing about the various ways Enter Shaolin, as well as myself will be finding more time and more money so we can get more done.
I hope you will take the time to contemplate the successes you have had and the lessons you have learned this past year and take the time to plan what you want to get out of 2016. You got this!

Hello Enter Shaolin,
I just want to say thank you Jamie for trying to help me with my problems of getting the courses. I really do appreciate the prompt response. I would like to tell you a little story. I have been on YouTube now for about 1.5 years looking for a teacher in an internal art. Well I saw Sifu Phu on one such YouTube episode and watched. Well I initially dismissed his talent and went on to other teachers. I had another opportunity when I saw him explaining Sil Lum Tao. Right after watching I immediately apologized out loud in my living room to Sifu Phu. I was and am very wrong about my first impression. So my apologies Sifu Phu, you are in my opinion a great and knowledgeable teacher. I will go online daily and learn what you have to teach. Thank you for sharing your incredible knowledge.
From British Columbia Canada.

Hey Jeff, your welcome, and I forgive you, lol
Mark T says
Thank you guys for all your hard work which definitely is paying off from our end.
I would like to ask 2 ques. about actual “work”. I have seen Sifu doing some 1 2 3 punches [elbows jabs etc.]; How would I stay rooted when punching/hitting quickly? [Not that I can do anything quickly yet but just looking ahead.] Also, if I’m punching elbowing etc. the other guy will be moving [hopefully backwards], how do I stay rooted when hitting in that situation?
PS At one point one of you told me that there is a video about countering knife attacks. Could you please direct me to that clip? I think that it was a seminar and open only to members.
Sifu Phu Ngo says
Hey Mark, rooting doesn’t mean that you can’t move, it just means that you are very connected to the ground from your head to the heels. There are footwork techniques you can use that allows you to move with your opponent and still be rooted. In terms of the knife video, I think you can just search for it in the search bar and type knife attacks. If you still can’t find it, just go to [email protected] and they can help you.

You are most welcome brother Alphonse! I am so happy to hear you are sharing what you are learning with others. That is a great way to reinforce what you are learning and is also helpful to those you are serving. Please send our love and gratitude to your club, we are happy to be of help to them. 🙂 We love you all too!
Michael Kelley says
Dear Sifu Ngo,
Thank you for sharing your knowledge in the series of YouTube videos you published. Through them I am becoming literate in the Chinese terminology of kung fun and I am getting a good theoretical understanding of what the proper form and physics of wing chun are all about. I am having some difficulty viewing the Vimeo you sent me in the email, probably because I am on dial up. I will continue to try, and get back to you on that.
I wish that I could offer you something meaningful in return for your beneficent help, and maybe I will get a break soon and be able to make a gift. I don’t know if you celebrate Christmas, but I wish God’s peace on you and your family at the birth of Jesus. I hope we all use our skills to protect and not to do harm.
Sifu Phu Ngo says
Hey Michael, thanks for the kind words. You are most welcome for the videos. Teaching is my calling. It is what the Lord Jesus has instilled in me to do. I do celebrate CHRISTmas and I wish you the best in all that you do. We would love to have you as a member whenever you can. Keep an eye out in your email as we do give special deals once in a while. I’ll talk to Jamie aobut the Vimeo thing. God bless.
