The Sifu comes from the Chinese word "師父" or "師傅"
Si(師) means "teacher" and fu(父) means father.

Sifu actually means someone who teaches you a kind of skills or techniques, which can be a kind of material arts, a kind of musical instruments, etc.

Sifu is not only your teacher, but also your father.

We have a idiom among us:
That means "If Sifu teaches you for one day, he is already your father for your whole life."

So we have to respect to our Sifu, just like we have to respect to our dad.

Similarly, SiGung (師公) is the Sifu of your Sifu,
Gung actually means "Grandfather" in Cantonese, and you got it.

This is my Sifu, Sifu Leung.

The art of supplying a truthful response to someone's nagging, busy bodied question(s) such that the person feels as though their question has been satisfactorily answered but yet do not understand the answer and are unable to provide a follow up question to gain clarification for fear of appearing to be a dumbass when basically having to repeat the question.
I laid the Sifu on Jessica when she asked where I was last week. She's still clueless and has left me alone about it.
