Restored Edition of the Legendary 1936 Manual – New Translation with Commentary!
“Taming of the Tiger” is the fundamental set of today’s Hung Kyun, one of the “Three Treasures” of Hung Ga. Chinese Hung Kyun Masters say: “When you enter the gate, you must first Tame the Tiger!”
Gung Ji Fuk Fu Kyun contains all the basic techniques and principles of Hung Kyun – stances, blocks, punches and kicks. Mastering of “Taming of the Tiger” is a prerequisite for further training in the style. Students in traditional schools spent their first few years practicing this set and mastering its skills and combat applications.
Luckily for us, Gung Ji Fuk Fu Kyun was well documented for the posterior generation in a series of photographs and accompanying notes, compiled to conceise manual, written by disciples of Grand Master Lam Sai Wing under his supervision.
Since then, the rare manual was republished many times, however with drawings and without the additional texts. Many Western practioners knew that it is indeed a crucial text for understanding the art of Hung Ga Kyun and have attempted to translate it into English with various success.
Our Man Mou Publishing proudly presents the first complete translation of the original 1936 edition with commentary!
The new edition contains:
- 93 photos of Grand Master Lam Sai Wing
- Restored Chinese text (traditional Chinese characters)
- Names of the techniques in English, Cantonese and Mandarin
- Standard romanization of Chinese names – both Cantonese (Yale) and Mandarin (Pinyin)
- Translation of the main text, ie. 93 plates containing explanation of the execution of the techniques, concepts, combat strategies, application drills and combat usage
- Additional texts from the 1936 photo edition – foreword by Grand Master Lam Sai Wing, brief history of Gung Ji Fuk Fu Kyun, biography of Grand Master Lam Sai Wing and detailed text on “Eight Diagram Long Pole” (Baat Gwa Gwan) set.
A Brief Introduction of the Translator
My name is Viktor Nordgren, I was born in Umeå, located in the north of Sweden. This year I will be 24 years old.
My interest in Martial Arts started in my early teens. I began training under master Mattias Lindh, in my hometown, Umeå. I have also been training under master Raymond Wong, Chung Man in Hong Kong, for the past two years. I have a great interest in Martial Arts and I take my practice under these two masters very seriously. It was the Martial Arts who brought me to China in the first place.
In the year of 2009 I travelled to China to study Mandarin. I studied hard since I saw a great potential in using my knowledge in the Chinese language in my Martial Arts training as well.
A goal was to be able to understand the Martial Arts on a deeper level. When I first read this handbook I got an idea. I wanted to translate it into English and by doing so help spreading the contents of the original book to a wider audience.

Excerpt from the Foreword of Grand Master Lam Sai Wing
It is said that if you are skilled with a pen, you must also be skilled with weapons.
I have been learning from masters for over fifty years, from a young age until the moment of
writing. Fortunately, I got the respect of my teachers who taught me the skills of Shaolin.
However, my skills are far from perfect. As a sign of gratitude to my teachers, I have taught
disciples for a few decades now. I would not call myself the most patient and systematical
teacher because every student has his story to tell.
Learning Martial Arts is easy, however to become an expert is difficult. First you need
to understand the rules then practise the standards of Martial Arts. Then you can try to
understand how to add power in order to become better and increase your understanding
of the techniques.
