Buddha Hand (Fut Sao)
Wing Chun Kung Fu
What is Buddha Hand Wing Chun?
This Cantonese family of Wing Chun Kung Fu was brought to the U.S. by Grandmaster Henry Leung in the early 1960’s. It is named after Grandmaster Leung’s late teacher, Shaolin Buddhist Abbot Hsu Yun (whose temple name was Gao Ghi Fut Sao). Wing Chun is a practical, no-nonsense fighting art that was made famous by Bruce Lee in the 1970’s.
Buddha Hand Wing Chun has the linear movement and aggressive, springy power for which all Wing Chun is known. It also has the softer, internal components that are often associated with martial arts such as Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing I and Ba Gua.
Why should you learn Buddha Hand Wing Chun?
It is a very effective method of fighting that includes:
• Empty-hand and weapon fighting forms
• Drills for striking, grappling and pressure point attacks
• Science that allows you to defeat a stronger opponent.
But it offers so much more than only fighting skills:
• Chi (internal energy) circulation exercises
• Correct breathing and posture
• Greater strength and flexibility
• Meditation and relaxation techniques
• Increased confidence and improved concentration
