Fu Hok Seung Ying Kyun, the Tiger-Crane Set, is one of the fist methods of our Kung Fu style. This set was created by my sijou, Wong Fei Hung. He used to be an instructor of the Lau and the Ng army troops. He became famous and has met many other good Kung Fu teachers. He picked the good points of different Kung Fu styles and then created the set Fu Hok Seung Ying Kyun.
Tiger and Crane Style of Fu Hok Seung Ying Kyun
The tiger style trains the breathing and power. The actions are slow, sounding like anger and looking like a mountain being pushed over, the sea being turned over, a dragon running and a tiger jumping. The crane style, on the other hand, trains the spirit. The actions are fast, just like a hare that is running.

Fu Hok Seung Ying Kyun also uses the strong points of the Kung Fu styles Hung, Mok, Hap and Fat as a reference. The set contains hard and soft techniques, as well as long and short ranged techniques. In addition, the set contains attacks and defenses.
To put it briefly, it is the most representative fist method of our style. This set is very unique in the Kung Fu world. If the student practices the techniques of this set very hard and understands them well, then he will find the techniques to be very useful in the future.
