Why ¡§U¡¨?

The pronunciation of the letter ¡§U¡¨ is similar to the word meaning ¡§excellence¡¨ in the Chinese language. In ancient China, the same word also meant ¡§performers¡¨.

The Zen masters in China over a thousand years ago had said that a true artist must combine ¡§Tao¡¨ (self-improvement) with ¡§skill¡¨ (the learning and maturity of art). The U-people believe that the combination of Tao and skill is the goal of their life and artistic creation.
