Professor Tik-sang LIU was interviewed in an RTHK TV program, 鏗鏘集，麒麟沉睡了, which was broadcasted on May 10, 2021. 麒麟被視為仁獸，在節慶、廟會、新屋動土入伙的場合，麒麟舞動，相信可以驅除煞氣和帶來好運。可是，自從疫情來襲，這些民間活動便大大減少。 香港甚少全職的麒麟隊伍，他們大部份都是以武術訓練場地的形式來進行練習和運作，但是疫情之下，隨著「出棚」機會大減，很多武館也停止了聚會。如此一來，營運的經費也受到影響。在這個收入大減的艱難時刻，武館如何維持經費?這種傳統文化又如何保育呢?另外，練習大幅減少，會否令習舞者技藝生疏，繼而熱誠減退。師徒之間以至同門師兄弟之間又如何維繫感情呢?
