    Awesome Eight Trigram Hung Ga Spear Form

    This is a described as a Hung Ga spear form performed at a dinner for Mok Gwai Lan's birthday. Mok Gwai Lan was the last wife of Chinese folk hero Wong Fei Hung, the most famous progenitor of Hung Ga.

    I notice it's the left handed form- does that mean that the right hand forward is the standard grip? That's how it was in choy li fut, then there was a form called the 13 lunges spear form where movements were done on the right side, and also on the left. It felt really weird and it was kinda tricky to get the right wiggle out of the spear since I was so used to doing everything on the right.

    Just recently, I started to learn the Filipino spear. It's a shorter weapon and its movements are more like a bayonet than the extended Chinese style.

    Mok Gwai Lan has such a cute granny look to her, hard to believe but here she is in her 80s doing some agile tiger crane form and some chain whip demo (1:40) for a Hong Kong TV show in the 1960s.

    Yes, Mok Gwai Lan is the original Deadly Chain Whip Grandma.

    Southern CMA's almost exclusively do spear and staff forms with a right hand lead, and the Northern styles with a left hand lead. CLF has some northern material (the "fut" lineage in the name) so you'll see some of that show up in their forms.

    The Chan family CLF lineage has left and right handed as well as a double ended spear.
    It is my understanding the "fut" refers to the Buddha.
    He named it Choy Lee Fut...
    ...and Fut, meaning Buddha, to commemorate the Buddhist origins of the art...

    It's Yang 24 Step Tai Chi. I liked it. He has missed a Parry before Apparent Close Up. Nice Applications and what I've been shown.

    Thanks
