Learn about Hung Ga - Chinese "5 Animals" Kung Fu

Hung Ga (or Hung Gar) is a Chinese martial arts that combines five traditional Kung Fu martial arts styles (Crane, Dragon, Leopard, Snake and Tiger). This martial arts is also known as Hung Keun.

According to Yee's Hung Ga Kung Fu School, "Hung Ga originated in the Shaolin Temple in China" and is a "powerful style which encompasses the hard, long range offense of the tiger and the soft, short range fluid defense of the crane, the evasiveness of the dragon, the precision of the snake, the swiftness of the leopard, and the application of the five element fist". Moreover according to Yee's Hung Ga International Kung Fu Association, Hung Ga (Hung Keun) is famous for the "thousand pound foundation or horse stance" and "iron fist and "iron arm or fists and forearms continuously conditioned on sandbags and wooden posts".

Hung Ga uses forms such as Gung Ji Fuk Fu Kuen (Subduing the Tiger), Ng Ying Kuen (Five Animal Fist), Fu Hok Seung Ying Kuen (Tiger and Crane Double Form) and Tiet Sien Kuen (Iron Wire Fist).
