Sifu David Chin Article Tibetan Hop Gar

Printed in April 2006, this article discusses Master Chin's history, Hop Gar, and principles guiding the fighting style of this kung fu.

There are four principles for Hop Gar: cruelty, evasion, penetration and interception. When asked about cruelty, Master Chin quotes the Lama White Crane kung fu classics: "When hunting a tiger, destroy it. Otherwise, a wounded tiger will return to harm you. When weeding a garden, pull up the roots. Otherwise, the weeds will grow back. Whether the lion is hunting an elephant or a rabbit, the lion always uses full force."
