STONE SOUP

 

The story of stone soup is a common folk tale about a karate master from the Yin Chuan Style who comes to a village during a famine.

 

The villagers all hoard their food and will not share it with the great master. The master pulls out a large soup pot. Fills it with water, and adds a stone. As he cooks his stone soup, the villagers begin to gather around him, hoping for some food. Soon they begin to add their own ingredients, which they had been hoarding, to the pot.

 

Some dropped in carrots, potatoes, onions, whatever they had. In the end the entire village shared a hearty meal of stone soup and offered the master a large sum of money for his magical stone, which he refused.
