The Foundation of the system (1836) is due to the work of Chan Heung (陳 享), who called the result of his martial training and then his style “Choy” “Lay” “Fut” in honor of his three masters:
Uncle Chan Yuen Wu (陳遠 護), the master, Li Yau-San (李 友 山) and the Buddhist monk Choy Fook (蔡 褔). However, it is worth remembering that there are different versions of the Foundation of the system and of Chan Heung himself. One of them talks about unification by Chan Heung of three different styles “Choy Gar” “Li Gar” and “Fut Gar”. Chan Heung had many students, including his sons Chan Koon Pak and Chan On Pak, which helped to spread the style in several areas of Guangzhou, and the famous and controversial disciple Jeung Yim “Jeung Hung Sing”. Jeung Hung Sing is acknowledged as the leader of Futshan Hung Sing Kwoon in China, and he is also known to have had a significant influence on our style. The GM Lee Koon Hung (1942-1996) was one of the leading exponents of the Choy Lay Fut system and widely considered the best practitioner of his generation. He studied and perfected the CLF system for life and with different Masters: Yim Yam Chou, Poon Dik, Chow Bin, So Kam Fook, Leung Siu Kuen.
Our style “Hung Sing Choy Lay Fut” therefore includes the system Chan Heung from King Mui and the system Jeung Hung Sing from Futshan.
