Taipei Memorial

Michael’s Memorial, AMAR, Taipei

On June 19, 2009 at 11:30am, there was a moment of silence in memory of Michael Martello at AMAR Taipei’s annual member meeting. The Chinese video clip titled “In Memory of Michael Martello” produced by Huai Hsiang Wang, son of Wang Laoshi, was played to all participants.  Free DVD copies are being made available to all AMAR members in memory of Mike.

Michael was about to come to Taipei in August to visit Wang Laoshi again in person, together with a gorup of his students from Belgium. Rosa Mei will come in Mike’s place with Mike’s students.

Wang Laoshi went through a critical tumor removal surgery last November and  is about to finish up his chemo-therapy by June 22, 2009.  Wang Laoshi has been recovering phenomenally!

He’s amazing, to come through all of that so swiftly, at his age. What amazing determination, focus, and energy!!”, said Dr. Thomas Argiro, one of Wang Laoshi’s foreign students.


Wang Laoshi still maintain his practice with his group of students each morning. It would be comforting for Mike to see again Wang Laoshi’s practice and continuous health/skill improvement at his 80s still!

Mail Correspondence with Mike on March 20, 2007

Dear Howard,

First I am say thanks for your observance and compliment , coming from you makes me feel like I have really improved…

In these two vids I play more rough with the students, allowing them to make big press ad pushes and I use more less subtle reflections instead of catching the intentions I catch there force and momentum ad play with there roots… I explain on the side why and my reasons…

It is also because they are not subtle enough and do not understand not to break or disconnect there minds and forces… They simply are raw in there ideas and very hard to (at least for me YET) to play very subtle with them… Although I feel improvements I recognize my intent to push ad am trying to use less physical intentions ad use will and mind intentions more… But yet it is hard… Of course my second reason is for pure fun and I like a bit of physical power issuing… But I still try to use as little as possible to get the job done…

My third reason is the web boneheads… People don’t believe just subtle destroying of the root, and when they see no movement or power and the person running backwards they think it fake and not real… SO i was trying to show a in between where I show issue but use soft control… I let the students use obvious force… That is why I move  the push sometimes I am testing to see if they are using good rooted power… So i move to show they are really pushing me… If I always root ad block them no one will see they are pushing…

Okay I have taken your advice about using students for practice but back the I was not ready, and used to much force to force… But nowadays it is different ad I really can hear by myself playing with students and meditating on the inner momentum,…. I know you understand about this….

I will shoot some more vids with subtle practice ad make it private so I can let only you watch… can be fun…

I agree and am ready for more spiritual studies… But I am still young and enjoy exploring the body and brain sides of the IMA… soo enough I will bridge the two, I just need more time… Thanks for all you help because these are the fruits of your dad and yourself helping me see the truth…. Thanks…

Yes its a sport hall dirty and cheap and big, but may soccer players in the background,,.. My old space was so nice compared but space to rent or buy is very hard ad I use several locations ow, so I move around a lot training in many sport places like this one in the vid… Some are nicer than this one but okay for now…

I am looking for a new space but so damn hard…

Yes I am doing well, not like super money making, because MA just does not make money, I should have played tennis or golf with the same passion I would be rich, but not happy, ….. this way I am happy and not rich, I like it this way, always a little suffering keeps life so much more colorful ad interesting…

Say hello to your dad for me…

Best,
mike

Dear Mike,

Saw the video you had posted recently, it seems like you have been practicing diligently, and had improved.  However,  your intent to push is still observable, and is not subtle enough.

You do have more than enough for you to teach for a living there in Europe, and obviously you  have been doing well.   However, would recommend you to spend some time to read into spirituality as the preparation of your bridging over in the future.

Is the background of the videos your current teaching site?  Looks like a garage or empty factory plant to me.

Regards

Howard

Skype Chat Log

My last on line chat with Mike….
The followings were my last on line chat through skype with Mike on April 7, 2009.  Mike tried to call me to inquire about my father’s well being.  My father was hospitalized and underwent a tumor removal surgery.  When I read the conversation again, I can feel the warmth and brotherhood from Mike in a vivid personality.   In memory of Mike, I would like to share this conversation with all who know Mike in person.  Part of the conversation is abridged/removed  because of privacy.
In love and peace.
Howard, Huai Hsiang, Wang

[?? 05:31:37] mike martello: Not good

[?? 05:32:13] mike martello: so my stomach got knotted
[?? 05:32:16] huaihsiang: There are two more months to go for his chemo therapy….so it is not a good timing for him to undergo another surgery….yet the hernia symptom is acutely there, so we are pending for the doctor’s further recommendations..
[?? 05:32:32] mike martello: oh i see
[?? 05:32:48] mike martello: Tom meant no harm just to tell me news thats all
[?? 05:33:01] huaihsiang: No worries…
[?? 05:33:26] mike martello: Yes i know, but you know me also I do worry for u guys
[?? 05:33:42] mike martello: You are like my extended family
[?? 05:34:27] huaihsiang: Thanks for the concern…..he is fine, just that he tend to lost his temper easily nowadays…and he does not seem to be aware of it….
[?? 05:35:15] mike martello: yea well he is going through a lot, understandable, and with the chemo drugs, side effects are possible
*****************************
[?? 06:01:44] mike martello: strange thing is Howard, I have been teaching for a long time now, i have a good handle on the qinna your dad taught me and my internal is growing… but but… I have learned….
[?? 06:02:14] mike martello: it is not for everyone, I teach basics for it bit no one yet has even been able to grasp the basic ideas
[?? 06:02:42] mike martello: I have come to believe it is way to high level for people to grasp because of the mind is out of snyc and body
[?? 06:03:30] huaihsiang: Mn…in a way, yes, it is difficult for the majority of people, yet itself is so simple….
[?? 06:03:42] huaihsiang: I call it degree of freedom….in between one’s body-mind…
[?? 06:03:44] mike martello: the flow of energies that allows one to grasp the others mind body is not just grabbing and twisting as people think.. it is beyond that… and that needs special people to understand
[?? 06:04:24] mike martello: yes simplicity in fact it is, but one must have reached the inner simplicity to really appreciate how subtle and simple it flows
[?? 06:04:44] huaihsiang: one’s body mind, one has to break free from the shackle first, then each and every move they make will be nothing but the manifestation of freedom, both internal and external…
[?? 06:04:46] mike martello: and yet i feel like a beginner still
[?? 06:05:05] mike martello: yes i get that, and that is what i see lacking in people
[?? 06:05:26] mike martello: army qinna for them is quite better
[?? 06:05:33] huaihsiang: They do not lack it, just that they are not aware of it.
[?? 06:05:36] mike martello: muscles and leverages as you say
[?? 06:05:44] mike martello: better put…
[?? 06:06:06] mike martello: true , your dad told me, I will not teach you, I will pull it out of you
[?? 06:06:17] mike martello: so you are correct
[?? 06:06:24] mike martello: lack is a bad word
[?? 06:07:35] huaihsiang: You said just now that you have not been teaching…what have you been up to then.
[?? 06:08:02] mike martello: No no I have been teaching
[?? 06:08:24] huaihsiang: I see…
[?? 06:08:47] mike martello: but i realize what I perceive to be taught is not what the student needs
[?? 06:09:03] huaihsiang: What do they need then?
[?? 06:09:07] mike martello: I have been for too long pushing on students what I want to train
[?? 06:09:18] mike martello: or what i need to train
[?? 06:09:27] mike martello:  but my needs are not there
[?? 06:09:32] mike martello: theirs
[?? 06:10:02] mike martello: so yes i have stepped back from my personal needs during classes and focus on the needs of students
[?? 06:10:16] huaihsiang: You do not need further training…..you train when you teach….aside from that, unlearn what you had learned is more important for you…..
[?? 06:10:21] mike martello: like just basic functional coordination and body alignment
[?? 06:10:37] mike martello: yes yes i know
[?? 06:10:39] mike martello: I do train when i teach
[?? 06:10:49] mike martello: yes yes let me explain
[?? 06:10:51] mike martello: hehee
[?? 06:11:05] mike martello: of course that is so true and why I have grown
[?? 06:11:16] mike martello: but I realize students are not me
[?? 06:12:36] mike martello: they need themselves to go thru what their body and minds need for foundation>>> i cannot put my foundation on them but show them what they are missing and need build… some need strength pure and simple, some need confidences, some need coordination, some need to just socialize
[?? 06:13:35] mike martello: i call it ming jing ming jing, gui li gui li… obvaice power and encouragement
[?? 06:14:10] huaihsiang: True..the difference lies in their lacking of true understanding of the nature of the art and quest. ..
[?? 06:14:16] mike martello: what I train is too subtle and not seen not he outside of the body and I realise for students this is not good, they need see it and feel it…
[?? 06:14:18] mike martello: yes yes
[?? 06:14:41] mike martello: so my needs are not their yet i can train
[?? 06:15:01] mike martello: I found a balance and it seems to get results better than before
[?? 06:15:15] mike martello: we have went thru so much we forget
[?? 06:15:29] mike martello: we forget all the training we did to get to this state
[?? 06:15:40] mike martello: we see the freedom already
[?? 06:15:43] mike martello: they cannot
[?? 06:15:53] mike martello: we feel the freedom
[?? 06:15:56] mike martello: they cannot
[?? 06:16:04] mike martello: like you said earlier
[?? 06:16:16] mike martello: the difference lies in their lacking of true understanding of the nature of the art and quest. ..
[?? 06:16:28] mike martello: it has helped me to be a better teacher now
[?? 06:16:39] mike martello: and students don’t get as frustrated
[?? 06:18:10] huaihsiang: That is why the true teachings are tailor made, individualized per each individual’s peculiarities,   standardized curriculum is impossible…
[?? 06:18:39] mike martello: ah very good point
[?? 06:18:48] mike martello: this is the hardship I find now
[?? 06:19:05] mike martello: students want a curriculum
[?? 06:19:10] mike martello: and I offer none
[?? 06:19:37] mike martello: if I want to survive i need to have one in place as a placebo
[?? 06:20:15] huaihsiang: Actually, I have been pondering over Sifu Tony Puyot’s  proposition…..perhaps I should position myself clear and square at  the beginning…true teaching is only available for those who are serious about their quest on the path of kung fu…for those who are not serious enough, the set program is good enough…
[?? 06:21:01] mike martello: this I have learned over the years of mistakes and teaching or trying to teach for real
[?? 06:21:11] mike martello: when its real people seem to turn the other way
[?? 06:21:19] mike martello: and only a very few are left
[?? 06:21:20] huaihsiang: You can franchise the standard system or programs easily, and take your time to observe and qualify the students in time,
[?? 06:21:33] mike martello: the very few do not pay bills thou
[?? 06:21:40] mike martello: but that is not my nature
[?? 06:21:51] mike martello: my conflict
[?? 06:22:13] mike martello: i have a CPA student tells me all the time to change my system like franchise
[?? 06:22:41] mike martello: i seem to understand the good of it for the clubs growth, business… but I myself am torn
[?? 06:23:21] huaihsiang: Yes, this happens, but I think it is time to set up the rules of the game, similar to the Japanese game,  not to make money though, just to ensure that there is enough resource for the propagation and sustainment of the art in an era of annihilation…
[?? 06:23:30] mike martello: i understand what true teaching is and almost cannot stand in front of a group and teach anything less, i will feel bad and question myself why do I myself train…
[?? 06:24:13] mike martello: why my club is still small
[?? 06:24:21] huaihsiang: That is a good question to ask to oneself though…..why do I train, and what for?
[?? 06:24:46] mike martello: I love teaching and helping people….
[?? 06:25:02] mike martello: I get so much back from it that money seems like nothing
[?? 06:25:33] mike martello: just part o the game of living
[?? 06:27:14] huaihsiang: Could it be that the teaching is imposive, and yet the helping is not needed?  If this is the case, something is wrong, if this is not the case, then the case shall rest…….Money is always a difficult topic, but it is necessary to address on this topic….as long as livelihood is concerned….
[?? 06:28:16] mike martello: thats possible… and yes money is needed to be addressed…
[?? 06:28:22] mike martello: imposive
[?? 06:28:27] mike martello: maybe maybe not
[?? 06:28:35] mike martello: some really need help
[?? 06:28:39] mike martello: some do not
[?? 06:29:01] mike martello: if I was not helped today maybe I would be something I would not
[?? 06:29:21] mike martello: people have helped me, its only kind to help back
[?? 06:29:31] mike martello: Yuan
[?? 06:29:36] mike martello: Yuan feng
[?? 06:30:25] huaihsiang: Mn…true sharing is not about the art of give and take…
[?? 06:30:49] mike martello: true, that is true….
[?? 06:33:03] huaihsiang: All encounters in life in between individuals are beginning of the growing of relationship in between the two, as to whether the relationship is good or bad, that is up to their hands….the encounter as of the beginning is Yuan, as to the quality of relationship is what is called “Feng”.   What is happening in between the teacher and the student is beyond yuen feng!
[?? 06:35:18] mike martello: that is beautiful….
[?? 06:35:46] mike martello: thank you so much i will ponder these things
[?? 06:36:30] huaihsiang: thank you for calling…I will keep you updated as to my father’s condition.
[?? 06:37:07] mike martello: have  a nice day Howard, I will think of you today, send you some good warmth….
[?? 06:37:11] mike martello: ciao
[?? 06:37:30] huaihsiang: (F)   say hi to Rosa for us.
[?? 06:37:43] mike martello: will do… and also to your family
[?? 06:37:49] mike martello: bye
[?? 06:37:54] huaihsiang: bye

[?? 06:20:15] huaihsiang: Actually, I have been pondering over Sifu Tony Puyot’s  proposition…..perhaps I should position myself clear and square at  the beginning…true teaching is only available for those who are serious about their quest on the path of kung fu…for those who are not serious enough, the set program is good enough…

[?? 06:21:01] mike martello: this I have learned over the years of mistakes and teaching or trying to teach for real

[?? 06:21:11] mike martello: when its real people seem to turn the other way

[?? 06:21:19] mike martello: and only a very few are left

[?? 06:21:20] huaihsiang: You can franchise the standard system or programs easily, and take your time to observe and qualify the students in time,

[?? 06:21:33] mike martello: the very few do not pay bills thou

[?? 06:21:40] mike martello: but that is not my nature

[?? 06:21:51] mike martello: my conflict

[?? 06:22:13] mike martello: i have a CPA student tells me all the time to change my system like franchise

[?? 06:22:41] mike martello: i seem to understand the good of it for the clubs growth, business… but I myself am torn

[?? 06:23:21] huaihsiang: Yes, this happens, but I think it is time to set up the rules of the game, similar to the Japanese game,  not to make money though, just to ensure that there is enough resource for the propagation and sustainment of the art in an era of annihilation…

[?? 06:23:30] mike martello: i understand what true teaching is and almost cannot stand in front of a group and teach anything less, i will feel bad and question myself why do I myself train…

[?? 06:24:13] mike martello: why my club is still small

[?? 06:24:21] huaihsiang: That is a good question to ask to oneself though…..why do I train, and what for?

[?? 06:24:46] mike martello: I love teaching and helping people….

[?? 06:25:02] mike martello: I get so much back from it that money seems like nothing

[?? 06:25:33] mike martello: just part o the game of living

[?? 06:27:14] huaihsiang: Could it be that the teaching is imposive, and yet the helping is not needed?  If this is the case, something is wrong, if this is not the case, then the case shall rest…….Money is always a difficult topic, but it is necessary to address on this topic….as long as livelihood is concerned….

[?? 06:28:16] mike martello: thats possible… and yes money is needed to be addressed…

[?? 06:28:22] mike martello: imposive

[?? 06:28:27] mike martello: maybe maybe not

[?? 06:28:35] mike martello: some really need help

[?? 06:28:39] mike martello: some do not

[?? 06:29:01] mike martello: if I was not helped today maybe I would be something I would not

[?? 06:29:21] mike martello: people have helped me, its only kind to help back

[?? 06:29:31] mike martello: Yuan

[?? 06:29:36] mike martello: Yuan feng

[?? 06:30:25] huaihsiang: Mn…true sharing is not about the art of give and take…

[?? 06:30:49] mike martello: true, that is true….

[?? 06:33:03] huaihsiang: All encounters in life in between individuals are beginning of the growing of relationship in between the two, as to whether the relationship is good or bad, that is up to their hands….the encounter as of the beginning is Yuan, as to the quality of relationship is what is called “Feng”.   What is happening in between the teacher and the student is beyond yuen feng!

[?? 06:35:18] mike martello: that is beautiful….

[?? 06:35:46] mike martello: thank you so much i will ponder these things

[?? 06:36:30] huaihsiang: thank you for calling…I will keep you updated as to my father’s condition.

[?? 06:37:07] mike martello: have  a nice day Howard, I will think of you today, send you some good warmth….

[?? 06:37:11] mike martello: ciao

[?? 06:37:30] huaihsiang: (F)   say hi to Rosa for us.

[?? 06:37:43] mike martello: will do… and also to your family

[?? 06:37:49] mike martello: bye

[?? 06:37:54] huaihsiang: bye

Howard Huai Hsiang Wang Tribute

IMG_0915Michael does not speak Chinese, nor does my father speak English, yet what was it that made them become a father and a son to each other? Mike appeared out of nowhere, and disappeared all of a sudden, leaving us nothing but fond memories with tears in kinship. Michael was blessed by living his dreams, a kung fu student up to the spirit and a family member closer than blood! May thee rest in peace, my dearest bother! Thy legend shall remain the aspiration to all in the lineage!

-Howard, Huai Hsiang, Wang
