八卦拳教我的第一件事情就是凡事要問「為什麼?」

The first thing Baguaquan taught me is to ask “why” of everything.

0:00:21.787,0:00:27.914

我叫何靜寒,我是民國四十四年元月出生的。

My name us He Jing-Han, and I was born in January, 1955.

0:00:27.914,0:00:32.314

我習武是從十六歲習武的。

I started to practice martial arts from sixteen years old.

0:00:33.160,0:00:39.893

那麼開始是接觸太極拳,接觸過形意拳,

At first, I came into contact with Taichiquan and Xingyiquan,

0:00:40.238,0:00:43.170

後來師承是八卦拳。

and afterwards I inherited Baguaquan.

0:00:43.498,0:00:49.245

我的師父是宮保齋先生,師爺是宮保田,

My teacher in Gong Bao-Zhai; grand master is Gong Bao-Tian,

0:00:50.350,0:00:52.454

那麼到我是第五代。

and I am the fifth generation.

0:00:52.678,0:00:58.874

我接觸太極拳是在十六歲,那個時候是在高中。

I came into contact with Taichiquan at the age sixteen, when I was in the high school.

0:00:59.703,0:01:06.469

那麼接觸了以後呢,這種有古味的東西啊,我就很容易喜歡。

After coming into contact, I easily fell in love with this kind of ancient stuffs.

0:01:06.883,0:01:16.135

就這樣子有意無意的,反正就是沒事嘛,那個,那個時候啊,放假就去,就去學。

Therefore, intentionally or accidentally, I went to learn it when having a break. I had free time anyway.

0:01:16.290,0:01:22.054

可是離開以後呢,我都沒有斷,在練習當中都沒有斷。

I didn’t stop practicing after I left, though.

0:01:22.762,0:01:28.526

那在新竹那個地方啊,認識了陳天一陳老師。

I knew teacher Chen Tian-Yi in Hsinchu.

0:01:28.526,0:01:31.251

陳天一老師練的是形意拳。

What teacher Chen Tian-Yi practiced is Xingyiquan.

0:01:31.562,0:01:35.841

那我就跟他學了,學了一點形意拳。

And I learned some Xingyiquan from him.

0:01:36.000,0:01:42.144

也是一樣,我學形意拳就是形意拳最基本的拳,劈、鑽、崩、炮、橫。

I learned the basic techniques of Xingyiquan, which are hack, snap punch, drill fist, cannon, and horizontal punch.

0:01:44.199,0:01:45.336

只練這個。

I only practiced these.

0:01:45.750,0:01:49.099

然後只學了一套形意的連環拳。

And then I only learned one set of quan of Xingyiquan.

0:01:49.099,0:01:56.348

他有一天就跟我講,他說臺北有一位老師,宮老師練八卦的。

One day, he(teacher Chen Tian-Yi) told me that a teacher, Mr. Gong, in Taipei practiced Baguaquan.

0:01:57.401,0:02:01.974

他說:「我去了四五年啊,你去,你去跟這位老師學學看,

“I had been there for four or five years. You may go to learn from the teacher(Mr. Gong),” said Mr. Chen,

0:02:01.974,0:02:05.459

你看能你能不能學到點東西。」

“and see if you can learn something.”

0:02:05.925,0:02:17.232

我就經過這個倪維城教授的引薦,到臺北認識到我的師父,就是宮保齋老師。

I got to know my teacher in Taipei, Gong Bao-Zhai, through professor Ni Wei-Cheng.

0:02:18.285,0:02:27.624

我到國外去推廣八卦拳啊,其實都是,很多事情都是所謂的機緣啊。

My going abroad to promote Baguaquan was actually so-called lucky chances.

0:02:27.624,0:02:36.082

當初的是在臺灣的外國人,他到我的班上面來學習。

At that time, foreigners in Taiwan came to my class to learn.

0:02:36.600,0:02:42.174

最早的是有一位英國的,有一位是斯洛伐克的。

The earliest one was an English, and another one was Slovaks.

0:02:43.193,0:02:50.494

那他們,他們都是練武很多年的,甚至在國外已經是教武術的老師了。

They practiced martial arts for many years, and even were teachers teaching martial arts overseas.

0:02:50.822,0:02:58.261

那因為學習得蠻有心得的,所以回國以後,他們回國以後就邀我去。

Because they felt they learned a lot (from me), they invited me over after they went back to their home countries.

0:02:58.261,0:03:01.660

所以我最早去的美國之外,

So, in spite of the U.S.A., which was the first country I went to,

0:03:01.660,0:03:08.495

我歐洲最早去的是英國,英國,然後是斯洛伐克。

the first place I went to in Europe is the U.K., and then Slovak.

0:03:09.358,0:03:15.433

那去了,他們就會找他們的學生啊,或者一些有興趣的人來嘛。

When I went there, their students or people who were interested would come.

0:03:15.744,0:03:21.000

那這一些人裡面呢,又有其他國家的。

Among these people, there were people from other countries.

0:03:22.071,0:03:28.871

所以我最早在教的時候啊,是一個國家,一個國家跑,一個城市,一個城市跑。

So, when I first started to teach abroad, I went from countries to countries; cities to cities.

0:03:29.354,0:03:37.156

那現在因為父母,父親的年紀大了,後來是父母都需要照顧了啊,就一年只去一次。

Now, because my parents are elder, and they need to be taken care of, I only go (abroad to teach) once a year.

0:03:42.353,0:03:49.291

八卦拳它比較講究的,我個人認為是一種從不平衡中找到那個平衡。

Personally, I think Baguaquan puts more emphasis on reaching the balance amidst the disproportion.

0:03:49.291,0:03:53.208

就是了解到說,喔原來這個動作是身體的哪些地方,

That is, to understand what particular body parts are related to the position,

0:03:53.208,0:03:59.024

你需要去控制你的身體怎麼操作它這樣,所以比較容易清楚。

and one needs to control and manipulate his body so it is clearer.

0:03:59.334,0:04:04.477

八卦拳,它是一種…嗯…動中禪。

Baguaquan is a kind of dynamic Zen(a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism).

0:04:04.753,0:04:10.137

我喜歡他的教法,所以如果你自己要進步,那你自己練。

I like his teaching approach, and if you want to improve yourself, you need to practice on your own.

0:04:10.517,0:04:14.209

那如果你自己要練,我可以教你。

And if you want to practice on your own, I can teach you.

0:04:14.295,0:04:20.854

就是他對身體的了解的細微程度,每一個關節啊,每一根筋啊在哪裡,每一根骨頭。

He understands the sophisticated human bodies, where every joint, tendon, and bone are.

0:04:20.854,0:04:25.720

還有甚至內臟該怎麼樣動,他都會很細微的指導這樣子。

He even teaches subtly how to move the organs.

0:04:25.806,0:04:32.865

不管他的武術,還是他的精神,還是他的生活面,就變成全面性的。

It becomes comprehensive no matter it’s his martial art, spirit, or life.

0:04:32.865,0:04:35.400

不,不是只有練習武術而已。

It’s not merely practicing martial arts.

0:04:35.400,0:04:41.544

每一個動作有很大的意思,然後除了動作,也有一種想法。

Every movement has its own important meaning, and also contains a thought.

0:04:41.801,0:04:46.218

他是求真的,他是有幾分證據就說幾分話。

He pursues the truth, and speaks with the evidence.

0:04:46.391,0:04:54.000

比如說哎,可能老祖宗過去有強調過說八卦掌走掌的時候,會練到辮子會飛起來。

For example, the antecessor probably emphasized that when walking the palm of Bagua Palm, the braid should be blown up.

0:04:54.121,0:04:57.019

那老師就有一段時間,他也曾經是留長頭髮。

In that case, the teacher once had long hair for a while.

0:04:57.122,0:04:58.500

想要去實驗看看說,哎,

(He) wanted to do the experiment,

0:04:58.500,0:05:05.922

我需要做到什麼樣的,什麼樣的程度,或什麼樣的一個身體上的素質,可以達到這一個指標。

seeing to what degree or physical attribute one could reach this goal.

0:05:06.201,0:05:09.464

第一個他的教學非常非常地有耐心。

First of all, he is extremely patient when teaching.

0:05:09.464,0:05:11.706

為什麼呢?因為這個東西其實很難。

Why? Because this is actually hard.

0:05:12.000,0:05:17.434

你其實古代的話,古代為什麼這個東西常常教學上出現斷層?

Speaking of ancient time, why were there often chasm of teaching?

0:05:17.520,0:05:22.024

第一個古代的老師,他會用、會打,他不一定有這個耐心來教。

First, teachers in ancient time could apply martial arts, but they were not necessarily patient to teach.

0:05:22.110,0:05:25.819

那第二個是說古代的老師會用、會打,他講不出來。

Second, teachers in ancient time could apply martial arts, but they couldn’t elaborate the thought.

0:05:26.389,0:05:32.084

然後第三個是古代老師,他講不出來,他,他講得出來好了就算了,他也沒有辦法系統化。

Third, teachers in ancient time couldn’t elaborate the thought, and even if they could, they couldn’t systematize.

0:05:32.257,0:05:36.000

所以為什麼會斷源?就是這些東西缺一不可。

So, why would it be disconnected? Because these above are indispensable.

0:05:36.000,0:05:42.767

老師還是再把它回歸到一個,在武術上回歸到一個最根本的一個質,就是一個核心。

In terms of martial arts, the teacher makes it back to the essence, a core.

0:05:42.767,0:05:48.376

那這一個核心其實在學完之後,其實我們在社會各個程度上都可以應用。

After learning the core, we can actually apply it to the society in various extent.

0:05:48.566,0:05:55.401

其實老師教的不是只有單單武術,它其實包含了很多中國的道家哲學思想在裡面。

In fact, what the teacher teaches is not only martial arts, it also contains a lot of Chinese Taoist philosophy.

0:05:55.884,0:06:01.337

還有包含就是以前我們師爺所留下的一句話,就是武術不是只練來打人的。

In addition, a sentence was left by our grand master, that is, martial arts are not just practiced to beat people.

0:06:01.924,0:06:07.706

對,打人其實是一個基本的東西,但是實際上它背後有很多更深層的含意。

Yes, beating people is a basis, but actually there are lots of deeper meanings behind it.

0:06:07.706,0:06:10.500

那我們只是藉由這一個武術這一個運動,

And through martial arts, the sport,

0:06:10.500,0:06:16.437

來去雕塑我們這一個人的外在、內在,包含核心上的思想。

we sculpt the external and internal of a person, including the core thoughts.

0:06:16.523,0:06:22.892

這也是老師這幾十年來一路傳承下來給我們的一個中心思想,對。

This is also the central idea that the teacher has passed down to us over the past few decades. Yeah.

0:06:25.326,0:06:30.814

我拜師以後,我師父講的第一個事情,他說凡事都要問「為什麼?」

After I became the apprentice, the first thing my teacher said was to ask “why” of everything.

0:06:32.317,0:06:34.818

練八卦拳就是養成這個習慣。

Practicing Baguaquan is to develop this habit.

0:06:35.716,0:06:40.306

在訓練的過程當中也是這樣的訓練的。

This is also the case during the training process.

0:06:40.548,0:06:42.669

你一定要知道為什麼。

One must know why.

0:06:43.066,0:06:47.587

為什麼這一拳要這樣子出?為什麼不那樣出?是不是?

Why should this punch come out like this? Why not come out like that? Isn’t it?

0:06:47.587,0:06:50.295

為什麼這個茶壺要做成這個形狀?

Why is this teapot made in this shape?

0:06:50.916,0:06:53.797

為什麼它的嘴要做成這樣彎彎的?

Why is its mouth made to be curved like this?

0:06:53.797,0:07:01.461

我們對接觸到的所有的事情,都不能把它當成是理所當然就是這個樣子的。

We can’t take everything we come into contact for granted.

0:07:02.134,0:07:05.222

學問是在這個東西的背後。

Knowledge is behind this.

0:07:06.000,0:07:13.491

可是你不問為什麼的時候,你就不知道這件東西背後的那個人的智慧跟學問在。

But when you don’t ask why, you won’t know the wisdom and knowledge of the person behind this thing.

0:07:15.269,0:07:17.355

所以我就養成了這個習慣。

Therefore, I got into this habit.

0:07:17.908,0:07:24.898

任何東西,任何人事物,所有我們接觸到的第一個,我會去想為什麼。

I would wonder why about everything and everyone we get to know.

0:07:25.364,0:07:28.452

當然你不一定會追求到正確的答案。

Of course, you may not necessarily pursue the correct answer.

0:07:29.039,0:07:37.963

可是當你的思維進入到為什麼的時候,你不會停留在那個,那個表面的好惡。

But when you are thinking about why, you won’t stay at the superficial likes and dislikes.

0:07:38.636,0:07:42.000

不會被那個表面的現象牽引。

Don’t be drawn by the superficial phenomenon.

0:07:42.950,0:07:44.708

所以我,我也是。

So, so am I.

0:07:44.914,0:07:49.280

我覺得這個是很好的,很好的一個,一個學習。

I think it’s a good way to learn.

0:07:49.280,0:07:52.333

就是任何事情去問「為什麼?」

That is, to ask “why” of everything.
