The Kung-Fu San Soo Salute
Excerpt from the book Kung-Fu San Soo: From Principle to Technique
Copyright ? 1986 Master Robert R. Shores


Robert R. Shores wrote:How a practitioner salutes can say a great deal about the individual. A proper salute not only shows respect for teachers, and training partners; it is also an excellent indicator of the practitioner's attitude, and level of proficiency in the art. Through a simple salute; it is possible to tell how an individual feels about himself, or you. For instance, if the practitioner has low self-esteem; the lack of confidence is portrayed in the salute. Other expressions easily read are lethargy, mistrust, disdain, or arrogance. These are the negatives that can be seen. On the positive side you can see poise, power, respect, humility, pride, and confidence.
