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."
