Welcome to the Southern Chinese martial arts portal – NaamKyun.com!
My name is Pavel Macek, and I am Hung Gar Kuen (Hung Ga Kyun) practitioner, teacher and researcher. Couple of years ago, i have co-founded a succeful and popular discussion forum HungKyun.com, dedicated to the art of Hung Gar Kuen, with the motto: “All Hung Kuen Branches Are One Family”.
During the last dozen of years i have been conducting an intensive research of Hung Kuen and southern Chinese martial arts generally. Together with my good friend Ivan Rzounek (Wing Chun Kuen sifu) we have interviewing many old masters of various systems, collected many rare photos, articles and videos, not only Hung Kuen and Wing Chun. Together with another good friend of mine, my daai sihing Michael Goodwin sifu (San Francisco) we are working on various interesting projects concerning southern Chinese martial arts, especially translation of old and rare kung-fu manuals.
The southern Chinese martial arts archives are expanding – time has come to move to the next phase. After a good though i have decided to close the original Hung Kuen forum and transform it into brand new portal, dedicated to all Southern Chinese martial arts in general. Here is the result: NaamKyun.com – All About Southern Chinese Martial Arts !
What to Await?
- Translations of old texts
- Book and DVD reviews
- Rare photos and old articles
- Interesting videos, both old and recent

manchutiger, lei hou, lei hou! thank you very much for your encouraging words! i hope you will share with us your experience and knowledge.
LAY HO TONG MUN PAUL MACEK SIFU,I’m glad that someone (particularly speaking of you) decided to dedicate a website to the southern styles of the Chinese martial arts. This will be an asset as well as educational to a lot of practitioner’s that aren’t too familier with other styles outside of their own. Keep improving the site and I hope to see a lot of info. on other southern fighting system’s. I have been in the Chinese martial art’s for almost 45 years. I had the pleasure of studying a few popular styles, but favored the Hung Ga Kuen system. 35 dedicated years in this formidable style. Also looking foward to communicating with other practioner’s. “HUNG KUEN YAT GA”.
thank you for your kind words! a lot of (and i mean A LOT OF) interesting stuff and info coming soon!
Site looks really nice! Glad to see it back up in a more expansive forum, too. Thanks for all the hard work that has obviously gone into its transformation.
