New York City , New York - New York Hung Ga
A Traditional Southern Kung Fu school with attention to: Self Defense, Sport Fighting (Lei Tai, San Shou, MMA and No-gi Grappling), Forms, Qi Gong and Lion Dance.
We trace lineage from Wong Fei Hung through Tang Fung, and Master Frank Yee.
Hung Ga has an emphasis on strong stancework, bridging, and conditioning (especially arm conditioning.) Both external and internal kung fu is developed through forms, partner work, sparring and qi gong training. Weapons training includes, Dan Do (Broadsword), Pole, Spear, Ji Mo (butterfly swords), Kwon Do, and Tiger Fork. Elective forms include; double-ended pole, double daggers and fan.
We offer a very comprehensive class schedule, offering more classes than most New York schools. We also offer a broad variety of classes for whatever elements of the style you want to pursue.
Sparring is done in 3 ranges (standup, clinch and ground) and alive drills with resistance are worked into the sparring class curriculum.
On the ground, basics are emphasised, and there is the opportunity to compete in no-gi grappling tournaments for interested students.

I was checking out the web site and saw there is a couple classes for chinese wrestling. Do you guys train it with primarily throws/takedows, or is it adapted to be used it no-gi tournaments? I'm moving to NYC this summer and I'm just trying to get a sense of what's out there. Thanks
I realize you mention opportunites for no-go grappling, I was just curious how/when your students train for the tournaments.

there are 2 classes that focus on chinese wrestling, on sundays there is a shuai jiao class that covers traditional shuai jiao (with jackets) on thursdays there is a throwing class that focuses primarily on sport sanda style throws (no jacket and often with boxing gloves.)
we sometimes cover submission grappling basics in our sanda classes, and there is an unofficial group that meets with a couple of students who cross-train in submission grappling elsewhere to work on that part of the game."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.
