A true grandmaster of Hung Gar/Hung Kuen and one of Wong Fei Hung’s original students, Lam Sai Wing.
After moving to Hong Kong, Lam began teaching Hung Gar and writing books on the three principle forms of the style.
One of those students would end up being Lau Cham, the father of famed Shaw Brothers director, actor and choreographer, Lau Kar Leung.
Lam Sai Wing’s primary occupation was a butcher. Sound familiar? Yep, Sammo Hung portrayed him (albeit a very exaggerated version) in what many consider one of the greatest kung fu films of all time, “The Magnificent Butcher.”
The Tiger style is one of simplicity and directness and power. Dominating, controlling, powerful, and frontal, it has no need for evasion, blocking or defense. In any confrontation it leaps into attack going for a quick and direct resolution to the conflict.
