Classical texts say that to have good gungfu you need 3 things: a right method, a good teacher and a good student.
The training of beginners focuses on the following areas: developing a strong technique (Faat) and skill foundations (Gung); strengthening and bulding of correct structure as well as correct motion patterns (“from the formless to form”).
Students first learns specific gungfu warming up exercises, “basic techniques/drills” (Saan Sik) and their usage (Saan Sau) as well as conditioning and strengthening drills (Gungfu).
After correct mastery of the basic exercises students start to learn the first empty handed set (Kyun Tou), apply the techniques in drills and reality based self-defense scenarios, basic combat sequences, and sparring drills (Saan Da).
The training of intermediate and advanced students concentrates especially on developing skill (Gung) aspects (“from the form to formless”), combat sequences and sparring drills (Saan Sau/Saan Da) and weapon practice (separated techniques, sets, sparring sets, combat sequences, sparring drills and sparring). The emphasis is put on enriching the combat arsenal, combat tactics and strategy, and advance inner aspects of Hung Kyun, namely the cultivation of “Internal Energy” (Noi Gung).
