Hung Ga’s “Iron Thread Set” (Tit Sin Kyun) Combat Applications [VIDEO]

Hung Ga's "Iron Thread Set" (Tit Sin Kyun) Combat Applications

Tit Kiu Saam (“Iron Bridge” Three) was one of the best fighters of 19th century Southern China – one of the legendary “Ten Tigers of Gwong Dung”. He was famous for her “Bridges” (Kiu), firm stances (Ma)  and incredible strength, developed thanks to his “Iron Thread Set” (Tit Sin Kyun).

We don’t have much information about his other techniques, but if:

  • …he practiced (mainly) Tit Sin Kyun
  • …was a super-strong thanks to Tit Sin Kyun
  • …and was a great fighter 

…where did his combat prowess come from?

The conclusion is – Tit Sin Kyun, of course.

Not many Masters today teach and practice the “Iron Thread Set” for combat – but that could be said about all other sets as well, because the general focus in Chinese martial arts training became health, strength, and fitness.

Lot of (practical) combat applications have been lost – our goal is to come back to the roots and bring them back. We are PRACTICAL Hung Kyun.

Please check out some examples, explained and demonstrated by Michael Goodwin Sifu, foremost Hung Kyun expert, my teacher, colleague, and great friend.

The question is not “traditional” or “recently made up” – the question is functional or not.
