Yee's Hung Ga Forms

Gung Ji Fook Fu Kuen


"Subduing the tiger in an 'I' pattern." This form teaches the basic stances and techniques of the five animals and the five elements. It develops stamina, endurance, flexibility and sets the foundation of the Hung Ga style. It is traditionally the first form taught in Hung Ga.

Fu Hok Seung Ying Kuen


 "Tiger Crane Double Pattern Form." This is the most famous form of Hung Ga and is the core of the entire system. Whereas Gung Ji Fook Fu Kuen is a basic training form, Fu Hok Seung Ying Kuen develops fighting technique and stresses the cultivation of the Tiger and Crane styles. The Tiger style develops fighting spirit, fierceness and Hard Power (Gong Ging), while the Crane style develops Soft Whipping Power (Bien Ging).

Hang Yuet Darn Do


"Moon Flowing Single Broadsword." This is the first weapon taught in the Hung Ga system and lays the foundation for the use of all short weapons. It develops strength, flexibility, evasiveness and precision. In Northern China, the Straight Sword and the Spear are the most commonly used weapons, while in the South, the Broadsword and the Pole are the most popular.

Ng Ying Kuen


 "Five Animals Form." This form teaches the techniques of the five animals. The Dragon form develops the spirit, the correctness of breath, the use of the waist and the twisting of stance. The Tiger form instills fierceness of spirit, develops clawing techniques and strengthens the bones and tendons. The Crane form teaches grace, control, balance and trains the sinews. The Snake form trains the fingers, promotes Qi circulation, control and teaches strikes to the vital points of the body. The Leopard form teaches the 'Tsop Choy' (piercing jab) and the use of speed and strength.

Ng Lung Ba Gwa Gwan


"Fifth Brother Eight Trigram Pole." This form was created by a famous spear master of the Sung Dynasty, the Fifth Brother of the Yeurng (Yang) Family. After losing a major battle, this General retired to a temple and became a monk where he adapted his spear techniques to be used with the pole. Due to its spear influence, the techniques in this form are delivered primarily with one end of the pole, making it a 'single ended pole form.' This form teaches moving in the eight different directions and lays the foundation for all long weapons.

Ji Mo Seung Dao


"Mother Son Double Swords." This form is named as such because both swords are used as a team - one following the other closely, as a son would follow his mother. In other kung fu styles, these swords are called “Butterfly Knives” (Wu Dip Do). This form lays the foundation for the use of all double weapons.

Ng Lung Ba Gwa Cheung


 "Fifth Brother Eight Trigram Spear." The spear form incorporates many techniques taught in the Ng Lung Ba Gwa Gwan, further developing thrusting and piercing techniques, speed and flexibility. Like the Eight Trigram Pole, this form also teaches moving in the eight different directions.

Chuen Choy Dai Do

"Spring Autumn Great Knife." Also known as the 'Kwan Do,' this long handled weapon concentrates on large strong movements while cutting and thrusting. Practicing this form strengthens the entire body. This form is reserved for advanced practitioners only.

Yu Ga Dai Pa


"Yu Family Tiger Fork." The Tiger Fork is a long handled trident originally used to hunt tigers. Practitioners of this weapon become unusually strong and quick, as this weapon is heavy and difficult to maneuver. As with the Kwan Do, this form is reserved for advanced practitioners only.

Tiet Sin Kuen


"Iron Wire Fist." Developed by Tiet Kiu Saam, a member of the Kwang Tung Sup Fu (Ten Tigers of Canton), Tiet Sin Kuen is the most advanced form in the Hung Ga system. This form trains the body to open and close, float and sink. Most importantly, however, this form develops the twelve bridges and the correctness of breath.

Ngauh Gwat Sin


"Beef Bone Fan." This weapon form, created by our Great Grandmaster Tang Fung, utilizes close-range concealed techniques, locks, and pressure point strikes to disable an armed or unarmed opponent. Unlike the fancy, dancelike fan forms of some other styles, the Ngaw Gwot Sin (while still being graceful) utilizes the hard and soft Hung style techniques to demonstrate the practical yet brutal fighting spirit of our system.

Dat Mo Yit Gung Ging

"Dat Mo Muscle Changing Classic." This advanced form was first taught by Dat Mo (Bodhidharma) to the monks of the Siu Lum Temple (Dat Mo brought Chan/Zen Buddhism to the Siu Lum Temple from India). This form trains the entire body through fourteen 'Hei Gung' (breath training) and 'Pai Da' (beating) exercises.
