Hop Gar has no blocking, evade, penetrate, use space to your advantage.
The Lama System has many distinct differences that makes Hop Gar Kung Fu unique.
1. There is No Blocking - You must develop a new skill set that allows you to intercept and penetrate.
2. Physically unique - literally add inches to your striking reach as you move.
3. Philosophy & Mind Set - Absolutely clarifies purpose and reason
4. Footwork (Kay Men Bo) - Emphasis on stances and stepping, so you can deliver strikes without being in the same place.
5. Body Space Elimination
Tibetan Hop Gar Kung Fu from the Lion's Roar is a Lama style, it is so unique that it is not meant for all students. The physical expectations, the mind set required, and its pure intention requires great work and effort.
Master Chin has a book that goes into greater depth about Tibetan Hop Gar Kung Fu.
As the Daai Si Hing (Eldest Senior Brother) years ago he had asked me to start writing a Fundamentals of Hop Gar book, he gave me a copy of Park Bok Nam's "Fundamentals of Pakua" and told me to use it as an outline for the Hop Gar book. He said that it is well organized. I have started putting all this media together, video, audio, pictures and pages of notes.
Great Grandmaster Ng appointed David Chin the Master of Tibetan Hop Gar Kung Fu in the United States.
