Hung Gar Iron Wire Short Movie

Postby peringaten » Sat Jun 01, 2013 6:15 pm

Hi FLK crew, been working on some short kung films with my teacher & my brother; just done our best one yet I reckon, based around the Iron Wire Fist set - hung gar style's top form & the one that gives the style it's power base... it's a form of iron shirt, so we decided to film in an iron forge...

Lau Kar Leung had Fu Sheng & Gordon show the style at the openings of Disciples of Shaolin & 36th Chamber...
My Sifu Leo Au Yeung learnt it from Lau Kar Leung's student Sin Kwok Lam... Put this on a few forums, but didn't mention the following elsewhere: As a member of the Lau family Sifu was lucky enough to be passed down 4 metal rings originally forged especially for Lau Kar Leung; so in the vid he is using 4 of LKL's original personal rings. They're the darker ones, particularly made to condition better than the bogstandard; also the t-shirt is unique to LKL students, made from LKL's hand inked calligraphy.

Think we've done the lineage justice with this one.

This is a very well produced video ,
I especially like the music ,

is it true that the Iron Wire form can take up too 30minutes to perform including all the intrinsic movements and breathing?

Time spent on the iron wire depends on what you are doing with it; the form is a dictionary of techniques, principles & exercises... putting it into sentences is the fun part. I mostly extrapolate sections to concentrate on rather than just read the whole alphabet start to finish... but even the whole form can take different lengths of time - this doesn\'t mean the method behind the techniques changes, but you can play with the speed of the movements & energy depending on how you\'re trying to focus...

Thanks Peringaten,

That makes sense what you said about Iron Wire,
Actually I like the series of Videos with you and your Sifu on Youtube.

I think one of the Gung Gee Fook Fu Kuen videos
has the music from Dirty Tiger Crazy Frog ;)

How long have you been learning Hung Kuen for?
