Fukien Hasayfu Hung Kuen

Click picture to view video.

Hung Gar is normally thought of as a Cantonese art. But there is another 'older' version of Hung Kuen which is said to have originated in Fujian. The forms of this Hasayfu version of Hung Kuen is much simpler compared to contemporary versions. Here, simpler does not mean inferior or ineffective by any means. This clip shows the Hasayfu five animal set as demonstrated by Master Saleem  Alamudeen, a student of Grandmaster Wing Lam. [Notes: 1) The titles of the tiger and crane sets were swapped 2) the video is accompanied by jarring music.]
