    Meaning of words

    May I ask what the following phrase underlined means?
    Affluence now beckons as devotees come from around China and across the globe to hone their skills in the martial art that is traced to the village clan's ancestors. Thank you.

    Thanks, RonBee.
    Pardon me for asking you one more question.
    What does "crass commercialisation" stand for?
    Thanks again.

    The term "crass commercialisation" is used to express disapproval of a particular type of money-making enterprise or money-making enterprises associated with a particular event.
