Hop Gar has no blocking, evade, penetrate, use space to your advantage.
The Lama System makes Hop Gar Kung Fu unique. A few distinctions in this fighting art:
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.

(Harry Ng) brought Tibetan Hop Gar to the U.S. and appointed Sifu David Chin to carry it. Sifu Chin Certified Daai Sihing TW. Smith as a carrier of Hop Gar in 1997.
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 Pai 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 Hop Gar 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. Sifu 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.
