If you can’t respect yourself, how can you respect others or expect them to respect you? Respect must be earned, you cannot request or demand it. ”16 For example, if you despise yourself and become a villain in this society, then you have lost your self-respect. Since you have abused your personality and humility as a human, why should other people respect you? Only when you have demonstrated that you are deserving of respect will respect come to you automatically and naturally. I remember my grandmother told me a story.

When Chinese martial arts started to be revealed to the general public, through publications between 1910 and the 1940’s, the authors were still very conservative and only partially revealed the secrets of their style. They emphasized martial morality, and they published some of the secret songs and poems, but gave little explanation of them. Between 1940 and 1960, more secrets were revealed, and the songs and poems were explained by well-known masters. In addition, most books published in this period included photos of the techniques and emphasized martial morality.
