EMPTY HAND FORM
• Gung Gee Fook Fu Kuen
One of the oldest forms of the Hung Gar style, Gung Gi Fook Fu traces its origins to the Siu Lum temple. Originally choreographed by Luk Ah Choi, the lengthy set emphasizes strong stances—particularly the horse stance—and powerful arm blocks and punches. The form is sometimes translated as "taming the tiger" or "tempting the tiger." Together with Fu Hok Sheung Yin, Sup Yin, and Tid Sin, Gung Gi Fook Fu forms one of the four pillars of the Hung Gar style.
• Fu Hok Seung Ying Kuen
One of the cornerstones of the Hung Gar style, Fu Hok was originally choreographed by the famous martial artist and folk hero Wong Fei Hung. The set combines the powerful, straightforward movements of the tiger with the elusive, flowing motions of the crane. To perform this set correctly, the practitioner must draw upon both the hard and soft natures of the style.
• Sup Ying Kuen
The Sup Yin Kuen can be translated as the "ten forms fist." The set was originally choreographed by Wong Fei Hung. Almost a style in itself, the Sup Yin Kuen combines the movements of the five basic kung fu animals—the dragon, snake, tiger, leopard, and crane—with the five elements in Chinese philosophy—gold, wood, water, fire, and earth. The Sup Yin Kuen combines chi-gung and breathing exercises with Hung Gar's characteristic stance work and tight hand techniques.
• Tid Sin Kuen
Originally developed by Tid Kiu Sam, the Tid Sin Kuen is considered an advanced internal form, designed to develop the pratitioner's chi, or vital energy. The set combines breathing techniques and chi gung movements with stance and hand techniques. Tid Sin can be translated as "steel thread." Some interpret this to mean that the practitioner must be simultaneously strong as steel and flexible as thread, while others view "plucking the steel threads" as a metaphor for creating and maintaining a harmony of chi. Together with Gung Gi Fook Fu, Fu Hok Sheung Yin, and Sup Yin the Tid Sin forms one of the four pillars of the Hung Gar style.
• Chin Cheung
The Chin Cheung or "War Palm" fist was originally choregraphed by Lam Sai Wing. It complements the other main forms of the Hung Gar style, Gung Gi Fook Fu, Sup Yin, Tid Sin, and Fu Hok Sheung Yin.
• Ng Ying Kuen
• Lau Gar Kuen
• Ban Bo Kuen
As a traditional style, Hung Gar also makes extensive use of weapons. Our weapon sets include:

Note this is the curriculm from Lam Gar Hung Kuen and what it shares with OTHER systems of Hung kuen is the core forms and GM Lam made no "hidden secret" as to what HE developed for his OWN Family style of Hung Kuen.
Praise be my Lord my Rock,
He trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle !
