This next episode of Way of the Warrior is on the topic of Kung Fu. Specifically, it covers Hung Gar with additional segments on Wing Chun and its derivative, Jeet Kune Do.

The Hung Gar segment features Sifu Chan Hon Chung (1909-1991), a 2nd generation disciple of Wong Fei Hung. For his contribution to Chinese Martial Arts, Sifu Chan was awarded a medal by Queen Elizabeth II in 1973.

[Viewer's Note: Don't get turned away by the movie cuts at the start, the episode starts in earnest from 2:08.]

This is very interesting, thanks for sharing! A friend and I have always been interested in Kung Fu so we did some research on what would be the best way to do so. Then we though about the option to learn Kung Fu in China since we wanted to only get trained by the best of the best. During our one month term, we learned so much in such little time than we ever thought going in.

My father has been to China for business twice now, and while he was showing me some pictures, he told me that they don't do the country justice for just how nice it is. That is why this summer, a friend and I will be going to learn Shaolin Kung Fu in China since it is something that we have always been interested in but now we finally want to learn more about it.
