    Yes - Chan Heung had three teachers, respectively teaching him the southern styles Choy Gar and Lee Gar, and an expat northern monk who taught him a Northern Shaolin style, thus the "fut" for "Buddha", which is why the style has some sets for typically northern weapons like the double sabres and monk's spade

    His three main teachers were his uncle Chan Yuen Wu, Choy Ah Fook, and Lee Yau Shan, allegedly a student of Gee Sin.
    Fut is to pay homage to the Buddhist lineage of all three, imu.
