YEE’S HUNG GA LINEAGE - PAST

Gee Sim Sim Si was an Abbot in the Shaolin Temple who passed his teachings on to his student
Hung Hei Guen, who formally founded the Hung Ga style in the early 1700s.

Luk Ah Choi was the son of a Manchu stationed in Gwondung. He became the apprentice of a
Monk named Lei Baak Fu who was a Master in the Southern Fa Kuen Style known as the Flower
Style. and after seven years of intense training, he was sent to the Southern Siu Lum Temple in
the Fukien Province. He became a student of the famous Abbot Gee Sim Sim Si. After the Sil Lum
Temple was destroyed, Luk Ah Choi traveled back to his home in Gwondung, where he devoted his
life to Chinese Martial Arts and Chinese Medicine.

Wong Kei Ying was born in Sai Chiu village in the county of Naam hoi in Guangdung Province,
in the early 19th century. As a young boy he earned a living as a street performer. One day he
was noticed by Southern Siu lam kung fu master Luk Ah Choy, and became his disciple. However,
another story tells that Wong Kei Ying learned from his father Wong Taai, who was a student of
Luk Ah Choy. Wong Kei Ying later became the martial arts instructor of the general of Guangdong's
infantry regiment. and was one of Southern China's famous "Ten Tigers of Guangdung" (Guangdung
Sup Fu). Wong Kei Ying also exchanged a lot of knowledge with other kung fu masters, such as
Wong Yan lum, a "Lion's Roar" Kung Fu master and also a member of the Ten Tigers. Wong Kei
Ying died in 1886.

Wong Fei Hung -The life of this most charismatic figure has been portrayed in over one hundred
movies, starring such greats as Kwan Tak Hing, who just recently passed away at the age of 92
(1 year has been officially added due to his many humanitarian accomplishments), and most recently
Jet Li. The real Wong Fei Hung was born in 1850 in Guangdung, Lam Hoi Province, Sai Chu County,
Luk Huern Yan villiage, China. His father was Wong Kay Ying, a student and disciple of South Sil
Lum Master Luk Ah Choy, and also one of the earlier 10 Canton Tigers of the late Ching Dynasty,
while Wong Fei Hung was one of the later Tigers. Both Wong Kay Ying and Wong Fei Hung were
inducted into the "Ten Tigers" while still in their early twenties, bestowing honor upon them for their
great skills. The other members were already at an advanced age and of a higher kung fu rank.

TIET KIU SAAM was the nickname of Leung Kwan. He was born in Gwan Dong Lam Hoi in
1813. He began studying at a very young age, learning from the Abbot Gwok Yan of the Fu
Kien Po Tim Siu Lum Temple practicing intensively in Siu Lum Hung Ga. He left the after the
death of the Abbot. During his wanderings he happened upon a place known as "long bridge",
where he earned his nick name here for having an iron fore arm. Tiet Kiu Saam was well
known for helping people in the Mo Lum (martial arts forest) and was very respected Master
of the late Ching Dynasty. He was also one of the 10 Tigers from Canton. Grandmaster Tiet
Kiu Saam is credited with creating the Hung Systems' most advanced internal training set;
the Tiet Sing Kuen (Iron Wire Form). He died at 73 in 1886.

Lam Fook Sing was a famous student of Tiet Kiu Saam who taught the Iron Wire form to
Wong Fei Hung.

Tang Fong was born in Sam Soy village, Gwan Dong province in 1874. During his youth he
learned Hung Ga from Sifu Wong Yau and Sifu Yuen Yin, and also studied Mau Shan, a form
of folk sorcery. He later learned from Wong Fei Hung, completing the orthodox version of
Hung Ga and becoming Wong’s close disciple. Tang Fong was also a participant in the Luk
Sin theater incident. In this famous incident Lam Sai Wing, Tang Fong, Tang Yee, Gwan
Kwan, and a few of Lam's disciples became trapped by a rival instructor at the theater who
led an attack with about 80 men, while Lam, Tang and his colleagues had fewer than 10.
They sustained a few minor injuries. The rival side however, had a count of 80 people sent
to the hospital. Tang, his brother Tang Yee and Lam Sai Wing left town to avoid further
trouble. Lam went to the Gwang Dong/Gwong Sai border and Tang Fong went to Singapore
to work as a miner. After Wong Fei Hung was quite old, Tang Fong returned to Gwang Dong
and he and his brother Tang Yee opened a school called “Yee Yung Tong” (Chivalrous Brave
Hall), After Wong's Death, Madame Mok Gwai Lan, who was Wong's Wife, taught an all
women's class at Tang's school.

Yuen Ling was born in 1921 in Guangdong, Sun Wui to a large family. While he was still
young, his family lost their fortune due to the depression. He went with his older brother to
Fatsan where they made a living peddling food from a pushcart at the railroad station.
There were plenty of other food vendors at the station, and disputes were usually settled
with the use of force. Deaths were not uncommon. Grandmaster Yuen was known for his
kung fu fighting skills and was able to establish an important position for himself within the
Fatsan railroad station vending community. Grandmaster Yuen studied Old Style Hung Ga
Kung Fu under a sifu who was nicknamed Sau Gau (Thin Dog). Old Style Hung Ga is a
branch of the art not through Wong Fei Hung. During the 1940’s, with China engulfed in
World War II, Grandmaster Yuen escaped to Hong Kong and settled in at the Shau Kai Wan
Fish Market to make a living. Like the Fatsan railroad station, only the strongest survived the
vending competition. It was here that he met Grandmaster Tang Fong. Grandmaster Yuen
Ling became Tang Fong’s last disciple.
