    Sifu or what?

    Hi Guys.
    Can any of you tell me what the female equivalent of Sifu is like?
    Success?
    I only know Lady Sifu, which sounds pretty stupid in my opinion.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello hermione!

    That should be "SIJE"

    Hay Bany.
    In my opinion, Si Je is the "older sister" of Si Hing!?!

    These are the terms I already have:

    Sifu paternal teacher
    Si Gung Sifu of Sifu
    To Dai students
    Si hung big brother
    Si Tai Gung Sifu of the Si Gung
    Si Jo Gung Sifu of the Si Tai Gung
    Si Jo All predecessors of the Si Jo Gung
    Si Mui younger sister
    Si Dai younger brother
    Si Je Older Sister
    Si Mo wife of Sifu
    Si Suk uncle, Si Dai des Sifu
    Si Suk Ba uncle, Si Hing of the Sifu

    Did you mean Si Mo Martin?
    There must be some Chinese word for it!?!

    Might be right (I'm not sure of the spelling Si Mo or Si Mu).
    At some point we had an exam question, although it is not on our normal terminology lists.
    Of course, it also becomes difficult semantically. Since Si Fu can also be translated as "father" and the wife of the "father" would be the "mother", Si Mo could be the kung fu mother ...
    I'll just ask again when I get the chance.
    Greeting
    Martin
