    two questions:

    1) do you honestly believe that tiger techniques are somehow more important in hung kuen than the other four animals?

    2) do you think that one can't use tiger techniques with a closed fist?

    you seem to have a strange take on hung kuen, even for a LSW guy.

    1. I said tiger is the heart of the system and it is true. The first form compiled by Hung Hei Goon (or Koon) consisted of the black tiger system he had learned in the temple from the Abbot Chi Sin Sim See. The Crane was added latter, by most accounts learned from his wife and is included in the second form. The Tiger and Crane are the two most used animals in the system still today, but No, I take nothing away from the other 3. (4 if we count the mantus latter added to the system.)


    2. Tiger has many closed fist techniques, but we have to acknowledge that the use of the gloves (with no finger holes) restrict 90% of the grappling techniques from the tiger and all of the claws.

    As for the LWS jab the Lam family has added as much to the system and been as respected custodians as the Wongs were, and, I might add is now in the third generation of gardianship of the Hung system so I fail to see why my respect of Lam Sai Wing would be anything strange?

    Anyhow, off to work with me, and Rabbit, I did not intend to hijack your thread. We just done things differently and I intend to train just as I have in the past but have to get up off my lazy @$$ to do it, so, have a good day.

    I don't think Ming meant anything by the lineage zinger, it was a good rub. I thought it was the best Hung ga joke I'd heard in weeks...

    As far as fu jow, my gloves have finger holes....problem solved.

    Ya Rabbit, I guess that was funny now that I think about it.

    ChenPengFi, I was referring to Bong Bou, a Northern mantis form practiced in Lam Family. I Think it was brought in by Lam Jo.

    Anyhow, I REALLY have to drop the conversation for a while and get back to work, wasted half a day already.

    Yes, it's also known as Fo Chin Kuen.

    My "What?" still stands.

    Are you unfamiliar with the 5 animals of Hung Kuen?

    So here's a question, particularly for the no-gloves fu jow guy: do you use leopard fists when you spar? What do you do with them?
