What is Hung Ga?

 

Hung Ga is a style of Kung Fu. Kung Fu means ''skill gained through hard work'', a concept which applies widely in life.

 

The roots of our style go back to the Southern Shaolin Temple. Today we are an international association with headquarters in Guangdong, China, and branches in UK, mainland Europe, USA, and South America.

Please check Yee's Hung Ga Edinburgh's branch website for information about our school.

What will I learn?

 

Hung Ga is an effective and efficient fighting style, renowned for power. Power is generated through a strong foundation, using body mechanics to your advantage, and through combining the external and internal – using both muscles and breath together. Total body connection is the goal.

 

As a student, you will learn ''forms'' which are basically sequences of movements. A full list of the forms is given here. You will learn unarmed fighting techniques, including striking, kicking, locks, parries, evasion, and sweeps. Armed fighting techniques include long weapons (e.g. poles), short weapons (e.g. sword) and double weapons (e.g. two knives). You will practice partner drills and free sparring. Body conditioning will make your muscles, tendons and bones stronger.

 

All the exercises are rooted in Qi Gong, which means that they will also be good for your health and boost your energy levels.
