Zhi Cheng Martial Arts School
Zhi Cheng Martial Arts School
The name of the school comes from the
famous Chinese sentence: "
you zhi zhe,
shi jing cheng

you: there is, have;
zhi: will;
zhe: person;
shi: cause, undertaking;
jing: finally, after all;
cheng: success, achievement

Zhi in Chinese can mean both will power
and aspiration/ambition, since those are
clearly related.  
Zhi doesn't just mean any
dream.  Dream also implies illusion, unreal,
and fantastic.  Where as
Zhi has only the
positive meanings of the word dream.  In
English the closest word is aspiration, that
zhi, although something that can be very
high, is an achievable, realistic goal, given
enough time and effort.  The perfect
example of
Zhi is the kind of dream Martin
Luther King Jr. talks about in his famous
speech "I have a dream..." There is an
English phrase "where there is a will, there
is a way" that matches this sentence
almost exactly in meaning.  Here the more
direct translation is "
where there is
enough will, there will be success
