Michael Jordan Inducted into NBA Hall of Fame, cried before speech Jordan cried before beginning his acceptance speech, then entertained the crowd with memories of any slights that inspired him to get to basketball's birthplace: The coach who cut him from the varsity as a North Carolina schoolboy. "I wanted to make sure you understood: You made a mistake, dude." Isiah Thomas, who allegedly orchestrated a "freezeout" of Jordan in his first All-Star game. "I wanted to prove to you, Magic (Johnson), Larry (Bird), George (Gervin), everybody that I deserved (to be there) just as much as anybody else, and I hope over the period of my career I've done that without a doubt." Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy - Jordan called him Pat Riley's "little guy" - who accused Jordan of "conning" players by acting friendly toward them, then attacking them in games. "I just so happen to be a friendly guy. I get along with everybody, but at the same time, when the light comes on, I'm as competitive as anybody you know." The media who said Jordan, though a great player, would never win like Bird or Johnson. "I had to listen to all that, and that put so much wood on that fire that it kept me each and every day trying to get better as a basketball player." Lastly, Utah's Bryon Russell. Jordan recalled meeting Russell while he was retired and playing minor league baseball in 1994 - and with Sloan looking on in horror - told of how Russell insisted he could have covered him if Jordan was still playing. Russell later got two cracks at Jordan in the NBA finals, and he was the defender when Jordan hit the clinching shot to win the 1998 title. "From this day forward, if I ever see him in shorts, I'm coming at him." The enshrinement ceremony took place at Springfield's Symphony Hall, because Jordan was too big for the Hall of Fame. The move to the other building allowed for a crowd of about 2,600, more than double what the Hall can accommodate. Robinson was enshrined first on Friday before a large San Antonio contingent that included teammates Tim Duncan and Avery Johnson, and coaches Larry Brown and Gregg Popovich. Stockton told the Spurs that his running mate, Karl Malone, was the best power forward, not Duncan. Stringer, the first coach to lead three different teams to the Final Four, still couldn't believe a coal miner's daughter had made it, calling it the "most unusual, unexpected thing in the world." She thanked her players "basketball daughters" - and praised her 2007 Rutgers team for the class and dignity it showed after the racially insensitive comments made by Don Imus. "I know that I stand here on the shoulders of so many," Stringer said. Sloan also thanked his players, his former coaches from high school to the NBA, and late Utah owner Larry Miller for sticking with him even during the team's bad years. "Loyalty is the No. 1 reason I'm still coaching the Jazz," Sloan said. Most of the attention was on Jordan, the five-time NBA MVP, but the others in the class are some of the most accomplished in the sport. Stockton is the career leader in assists and steals, Robinson won an MVP trophy and two titles in San Antonio, and Sloan is the only coach to win 1,000 games with one team. "Unique, unique competitors," Stockton said during the morning press conference. Fiery ones, too. Sloan, Stockton's longtime coach, told two different tales of fights he was in as a hard-nosed player for Chicago. Jordan remembered scoring around 20 points in a row late in a game to pull out a win, which was followed by a conversation with Bulls assistant Tex Winter. "Tex reminded me that there's no 'I' in team," Jordan said. "And I looked back at Tex, I said, 'There's 'I' in win.' So whichever way you want it." Jordan and Robinson were All-American college players who entered the NBA with high expectations. Sloan acknowledged he wasn't so sure about Stockton at first - and turns out, neither was Stockton. "I thought they'd figure me out pretty quickly. I thought the Jazz would figure out that they'd made a mistake, so first paycheck I saved every cent," Stockton said. "I was pretty sure I was a one-year-and-out guy." Not Jordan - who still might not be done. "One day you might look up and see me playing a game at 50," he said. "Don't laugh. Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion."

The birthplace of Choy Lee Fut was King Mui, a village in Ngai Sai (or West Bank of two coastal ledges) in Sun Wui district or county of Kwangtung province. Since the Sung Dynasty (960-1280 A.D.), the region around the rugged coastal ledges had been a stronghold of dedicated revolutionaries against the harsh and tyrannical rulings of those in power. The inclination to the martial arts has always been an integrated part of life and custom. This was the background to Choy Lee Fut's coming into being. The West Bank or Ngai Sai area was divided into twenty-six villages of different clans namely Chan, Lee, Cheung, Wong, Ho, Lok, Chung, Yeung etc. The clan of Chan was particularly prosperous as its clansmen resided in five villages and King Mui was one of them. The genealogical order of the clan were arranged as Sai, Tak, Chok, Ko, Yee, Jik, Yuen, Sing, Tai, Din, Sun, Mo, Yin, Yik, Chuen, Fong, Wing, Hau, Yin, and Leung. It was also arranged as Sai, Tak, Chok, Ko, Yee, Jik, Yuen, Sing, Fong, Lap, Wan, Chor, Chun, Kok, Hin, Chin, Cheung, Hau, Yeung, Yau. These were also the arrangement of two rows of spiritual tablets arranged in the ancestral temple. The founder of Choy Lee Fut, Chan Heung, was from King Mui. He was first taught by fellow clansman, Chan Yuen Wu for some ten years. Later, Chan Heung was referred to Lee Yau Shan with whom he spent several years. Finally, Chan Heung went to Lau Fou Shan ( Mount Lau Fou), where he spent some eight years with a monk named Choy Fook. As Chan Heung had absorbed a great deal of kungfu, he thought it only right to create a system of his own, drawing on his long years of learning under his mentors. Being a man of principles, he paid due respect to his teachers by naming his creation Choy Lee Fut. Choy and Lee being the surnames ( or last names) of his two mentors Choy Fook and Lee Yau Shan who both had taught him authentic Siu Lum kungfu. The Fut (Buddhism) comes from the fighting art of the Buddhist devotees. Chan Heung had two sons, On Pak and Koon Pak. Chan Koon Pak also had two sons, Man bun and Yiu Chi. Chan Yiu Chi had two sons, Wan Hon and Sun Chu, and a daughter, Chan Kit Fong, who now resides in the U.S.A. Chan Koon Pak, the second son of Chan Heung, was a very adept and intelligent person. At a rather young age, he had mastered the art his father had passed onto him. But Chan Koon Pak, chose to become a merchant and settled in Kong Moon. Under persistent persuasion, he did come out for a stint as the head instructor of the Choy Lee Fut school in Kong Moon. Chan Koon Pak later moved to Canton, where he opened a kungfu school as a result of popular request. Countless number of people had come to him for instructions; notably Ngan Yiu Ting, Wong Fook Wing, Wu Kee Biu, Lee Hin Cheung, Choy Pak Tat, Choy Pak Hung, etc. Chan Koon Pak was a disciplinarian and the same stern attitude to learning was also impressed onto his son Yiu Chi. Chan Yiu Chi seldom turned his thoughts off kungfu. Even when sitting idle, his feet could be seen practicing. This kind of incessant work made Chan Yiu Chi, an outstanding exponent of Choy Lee Fut. He represented speed, power, agility and more. Perhaps less known to many people Chan Yiu Chi was also a classical scholar, and he never bragged about or showed off his deadly kungfu skill. At the time of his staying with his father, Chan Koon Pak in Canton, he engaged in the propagation of Choy Lee Fut to the world at large. Requests were received regularly, asking him to teach abroad in San Francisco, Holland, the South Pacific and other overseas countries where there were substantial Chinese population. As Chan Koon Pak was in an advanced age, Yiu Chi did accept, as his father so desired, several posts as kungfu instructor in many secondary and tertiary schools, trade unions, sports clubs and worker's associations. His prominence in kungfu overshadowed his other fields of excellence ; that of poetry and classics.

Wudang Bajiquan internal kungfu Baji Quan or the eight extremes Chuan is also known as the open-door eight extremes Chuan, which is one of the traditional Chinese Chuan schools. Baji Quan is known for its force-fullness, simplicity and combative techniques. According to Wushu proverbs: "For ministers, Tai Chi Quan is used to run the country and for generals, Baji Quan is used for defending the country." From this it can be seen that Baji Quan holds a significant position among various Chinese Chuan school. The Meng Village of Cangzhou in Hebei Province is the birthplace of the Eight Extremes and while it is mainly practised in north China, it is also found in some places in the south. The Wu-style eight extremes Chuan is said to have a history of more than 260 years. It was passed on from a traveling senior monk to Wu Zhong of the Meng Village. The book of Secrets of the Eight Extremes Chuan, therefore, proclaims that the Monk was the creator of the eight extremes Chuan and Wu Zhong was the first successor. Because of his excellence at spear play, Wu Zhong was known as Spear God Wu, the number one spear fighter from Nanjing to Beijing. The eight extremes Chuan is simple and plain. It consists of short and yet menacing moves which are forceful, powerful and abrupt and demands hard play in both attack and defence. Elbows are often used in straightforward ways. The explosive powers generated are stimulated through breathing which is articulated by two sounds of "Heng" and "Ha." Powerful blows are delivered from elbows and shoulders in close combat against the opponent.

There are more than 10 beaches in the vicinity of Paphos. The most famous is probably Coral beach in the west, which is calmer then the other beaches on the west coast. A landmark non organized beach in the area is at Aphrodite’s Rock (between Paphos and Limassol), the birthplace of the greek goddess of beauty. In general, one can divide the Paphos beaches into two groups. The ones in the south, most of which have wavebreakers and as a result they are also a lot calmer, and the ones in the west, some of which are quite rough. On the other hand, these have a wild natural beauty. In winter some beaches get sea weed deposit, but there are removed before the swimming season begins. I swam both in the south and in the west. The water is warm in summer and I had a nice time. If one follows the lifeguards instructions, you should be able to enjoy a splendid summer holiday at one of Paphos beaches.

If you are fortunate enough to be travelling in Central Europe in the summertime, (or anytime, for that matter), be sure to include in your plans Salzburg, Austria, birthplace of musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. You know you are there when everything has the famous classical composer's face all over it. Salzburg makes no bones about its obvious pride for its native son, and statues, monuments, and references to Mozart abound in the city and its vicinities. If you are a music fan in general, Salzburg is the place for you. Each summer the city is home to the Salzburg Festival, a world-renowned attraction for lovers of opera and classical music. Salzburg is also where movie musical favorite THE SOUND OF MUSIC was filmed. One of the more curious--but delicious--aspects of going to Salzburg, and Austria in general, is a phenomenon called Mozartkuegeln, or "Mozart Balls." Wait! It's not what you think. They are scrumptious candies made of chocolate, of that delectable quality that only the Europeans know how to produce. They also contain hazelnut nougat and a delicious caramel-like substance. By the way, hazelnuts are to Europeans what peanuts are to North Americans. Mozart Balls make wonderful gifts to bring back with you for family and friends. They have a beautiful portrait of the composer on the packages, and are available in many sizes. Be sure to get the good kind, though, and not one of the cheaper rip-off versions. They are still affordable, and they are worth it to spend a little bit more. If you are unsure of which kind to get, try asking a local Salzburger. People in the Germanic countries tend to speak English, for the most part, if you don't know any German. One of the best places to see if you are going to Salzburg is Mozartsgeburtshaus, or "House of Mozart's Birth." You can't miss it: it is a large, multi-story house along one of the prettily narrow streets of Salzburg. It is bright gold in color, and has the name written right on it in large, elegantly curved letters. You climb up gorgeous old steps towards the top. Inside you will find actual instruments that the musical prodigy played: his childhood violin, which is locked up in a clear vault for viewing, and his beautiful and famous piano with the black keys. Although it has a sign perched atop it with the unequivocal words in several languages: "Do Not Touch," I must confess that I snuck a touch with the tip of my index finger in a stealthily executed, perfectly timed manner. The stern Austrian woman guarding the room was suspicious, but didn't notice a thing. I was in heaven. I had just touched Mozart's piano! The very same one that he, brilliant being that he was, did touch. I was on cloud nine for a couple of hours after that, until I went to Rome. But that's another story.
