Hop Gar (Lama, Tibetan White Crane) Boxing

Often considered a Tibetan style, Hop Gar is a dynamic long fist style with a fierce history. In its lineage, it counts one of the Ten Tigers of Canton: Wong Yan Lum. This rarely seen style is proud of its strong fighting heritage. Developed around a specific set of principles such as angled evasion, no blocking and striking the pulse point, Hop Gar has an almost underground reputation as a powerful and no-nonsense approach to combat. Yet it's wide open movement have led some to discribe it as White Crane, but TIBETAN White Crane unrelated to the Fukian branch. Lin Xin's teacher was a famous Hop Gar inspiration, Deng Jing Tao.
NOTE: This collection is not subtitled in Chinese and Xin Lin speaks Cantonese, not Mandarin.
