Secret „internal“ set of Siu Lam/Old Hung Ga, last of the „Three Treasures of Hung Kyun“, passed to the current generation by Tit Kiu Saam’s disciple Lam Fuk Sing to Wong Fei Hung – legendary “Iron Thread Set”. Tit Sin Kyun finishes what Gung Ji Fuk Fu has started – it completes the circle.

It is a harsh and unspoken truth that even many very famous Grand Masters a well as current Masters have never formaly learned Tit Sin Kyun from their Sifu – the either learned it from (watching) their Si Hing, from Jyu Yu Jai’s book, or a video, usually using the Dragon Form part of „Five Animal Set“/“Ten Forms Set“ as the basis for re-construction of Tit Sin Kyun.
