What is Kung Fu?
The term Kung Fu tells us to spend time
and effort in our chosen subject. Ours is Mo Sut (martial art or
stop war or spear).
Kung Fu can be translated into a four-word formula. These four words
are put into our mind to then permeate into our practice. Each action
we repeat absorbs one of the four words at a time (sometimes 2,
3, or 4 words together) depending on which position we are training.
The only criteria is to keep the four-word formula in our mind as
we strike the posture of whatever form we train.
What is Hung Gar?
Hung Gar originally grew from conflict. Our founder created the
triad of heaven, earth and man for the survival of a good way of
life. Our style teaches us to fight for this right.
Hung Gar within the physical and mental aspect can be compounded
into another four-word formula (different from the four-word formula
of kung fu). I cannot teach this in this format as my understanding
is limited to my own standard and therefor should not be passed
on at this stage.
Every technique and every form becomes simple in essence once the
four-word formula stays in the mind during practice.
Then we can begin to develop in the direction our ancestors require.
What is Fung Gar?
Before Shaolin there was still kung fu but Ta
Mo hadn’t given the method to China. In side man there existed
beliefs etc. This was drawn from the sun, moon and earth, by observing
nature with its changes and natural power (earthquakes, thunder
storms, typhoons etc.)
This way of living was natural to man before societies developed.
By using the mind we can absorb this old way of existing combining
it into our kung fu practice.
