Pak Mei Kung Fu Ethics
This poem has been handed down through generations, all students from the Pak Mei clan should remember and follow the ethics and morals outlined in this poem.
The english translation is as follows:
Learn to be righteous and temper your conduct, before you may learn kung fu.
If you know kung fu, you may not commit any illegal offenses.
The best kung fu practitioners never hit people, even for the slightest offenses.
If you encounter an evil person,
Even if you are offered thousands of pounds of gold, you may not teach them.
You may not even teach a close relative, if they are not morally decent.
You may teach a perfect stranger, as long as they are righteous and decent.
If you understand the essence of Pak Mei kung fu,
Even a stone is precious like gold.
