导读:什么是“功夫”?功夫的起源在哪里?纪录片电影《寻找功夫》试图找到这些问题的答案,探寻中国功夫的真谛。

Chinese kung fu is full of Chinese philosophies and core values. VCG

What springs to mind when you think of kung fu, also known as wushu? Maybe the image of Shaolin monks striking fierce poses with a stern look in their eyes, or popular children’s movies like Kung Fu Panda. But do they really portray the meaning of kung fu?
想到功夫(武术),你会想到什么?也许是少林僧人目光炯炯的一招亮相;也许是像《功夫熊猫》这样深受孩子们喜爱的电影。但这些真的体现了功夫的真谛吗?

Recently, Laurence J. Brahm, a documentary filmmaker from the United States, explored this question in Searching for Kung Fu. In the movie, Brahm embarked on a kung fu pilgrimage, traveling to cities in China and the US in search of the origin and value of kung fu.
近日,美国纪录片制作人龙安志在《寻找功夫》中探讨了这一问题。在电影中,龙安志踏上功夫朝圣之旅,走访中美城市,寻找功夫的起源与价值观。

Brahm himself is a kung fu lover who has been devoted to the practice for more than 40 years. For him, pursuing this craft was more than a pastime.
龙安志是个功夫爱好者,潜心修习功夫40多年。对他来说,这不仅仅是一种消遣。

Around a decade ago, Brahm was unable to use one of his legs for about two years and had to walk with crutches and a cane. But by practicing martial arts “very, very slowly” he was able to recover step by step. Now, kung fu has become a daily routine for him and also the way he greets the day.
大约10年前,有两年左右的时间里,龙安志的一条腿都不能动,他不得不拄拐走路。但通过“非常非常缓慢地”练习武术,他逐步恢复。现在,功夫已经成为他日常生活的一部分,也是他迎接新一天的方式。

“Martial arts can help us connect our body, connect our neural system, connect our blood flow, and also help connect us into our environment to increase our awareness. Martial arts is moving meditation,” Brahm said.
“武术可以帮助我们连接身体,连接神经系统,连接血流,还可以将我们连接到环境中来提高我们的意识。武术正在推动冥想,”龙安志表示。

Still others find additional meaning in the practice.
还有些人在习武中发现了其他真谛。

“Chinese kung fu is full of Chinese philosophies and core values,” Hong Kong actor Bruce Leung told Xinhua.
“中国功夫充满了中国哲学和核心价值观,”中国香港演员梁小龙在接受新华社采访时表示。

Nonviolence is one of these values, which is shown both in the name and the practice. Wu, consists of two characters – ge, meaning “dagger-ax”, and zhi, meaning “to stop”. So, the meaning of kung fu in Chinese is the art of stopping fighting, the art of nonviolence. Kung fu artists always salute with baoquan. This lets each person know that there are no hidden weapons and shows trust.
非暴力就是其中之一,体现在武术的名字和习武过程中。“武”由两个字组成——一个是戈,指“匕首”,另一个是止,指“停止”。因此,功夫在中文里指停止(止)战斗(戈),一种非暴力的行为艺术。习武者总行抱拳礼,这是在告诉每个人,没有藏武器,显现信任。

Brahm’s appreciation of kung fu is clear. He sees it as “a mirror of Chinese culture”.
龙安志对功夫的欣赏不言而喻。他将功夫看成“中国文化的一面镜子”。

“The traditional values of kung fu, actually, are in the minds of all Chinese people. Why does China want to be in harmony with other nations? It’s part of the psychology of the Chinese people. It’s also national psychology,” Brahm told Xinhua.
“实际上,功夫的传统价值观在所有中国人心中。为什么中国要与其他国家和睦相处?这是中国人心理的一部分。这也是民族心理,”龙安志在接受新华社采访时表示。

Brahm also believes that today’s world urgently needs to restart equal exchanges between countries without stereotypes, and that culture and sports, such as kung fu, can serve as a great channel and platform.
龙安志还认为,当今世界迫切需要恢复国家之间没有刻板印象的平等交流,文化和体育,例如功夫,可以作为一个很好的渠道和平台。
