One of the things that drew me many years ago to Hung Ga was the use of Iron Rings.
Because of my attraction to the idea of training with the Ring, I searched for posts and literature on them. I have read many documents and posts about why people think they are a valuable training tool and also why many people think that they are pointless or have been superseded by modern tools.

“Fu Hok Seung Ying Kyun is one of the methods of our martial arts style. This set was created by the late Grand Master Wong Fei Hung. When he was a child, he made an itinerant living as a street performer together with his father, Great Grand Master [Wong Kei Ying].
