A friend tells me that when he was studying Lam Sang Southern Praying Mantis (as a young man in NY back in the 60's), he became acquainted with a Hung Ga Kyun
practitioner by the name of Sammy Wong, brother of his Sifu
, who so happened to be a classmate of Wai Hong under US Hung Kyun
pioneer Wong Moon Toy...
My friend then proceeded to show me a perfect Saam Sing Kau Taan Geuk
/"Three-Star Hook Reaping leg". That, blended in right with his Southern Mantis Bridging, looked like textbook LGHK to me!
Wai Hong likewise deserves his recognition as a pioneer, IMHO. A vital and a martial branch, through Fu Jow Pai
he brought his Sifu
's Hung Kyun
to the multitudes...
What happened to that video clip of the Wai Hong student branch somewhere, on stage performing FHSYK?
I thought those guys looked pretty strong!
