A Hung Gar Kuen resouce - videos, forms, technique, documentary

 

The intention of this thread is to create a resource to serve as a place to bring together examples of Hung Gar Kuen so that people can see different examples of how it it’s done. Please add in examples of forms and of techniques, chi gung drills, and application that you like.

The principle forms of the “main” lines of hung gar are.

• Taming the tiger (also known as the I crossing form), Gung Gee Fook Fu Kuen.

• Tiger and crane, Fu Hok Seung Ying

• Five animal, Ng Ying Kyun,

• Five animal five element some (also known erroneously as ten animal) Sap Ying Kuen

• Iron wire. Tid sin.

There are also 1 or 2 lau gar forms passed on in Hung Ga schools.

There is legitimate variation in the way that forms are performed. There is legitimate variation in emphasis. It depends on why the form is being done, performance, conditioning, and so on. It also depends on the weight placed on different aspects of the movements, a solid root v's quick movement, Muscle power v's tendon power so on. Different teachers have different approaches. Over the years forms change, gaining or loosing movements. It can be helpful to look at different examples of the same form to see the different ways they have been interpreted.

There are also other lines of Hung gar such as Ha Sei Fu Hung Gar that have separate animal forms in addition/instead of the forms listed above. If you have any examples of these it would be great to see them as well.

The examples I post below are all freely available on the internet. If you wish to post your own material please check with your club that it is ok to do so.

I would be grateful if you could place comments about videos on a separate discussion thread. That way this thread remains a simple resource, a place to go to and see examples of hung gar being practiced.

Sweet!!

It might be a good idea to throw in the line (Wong Fei Hung, Village) so the differences & similarities can be picked out.
