Ho Lap Tin. The Shooting Star Boxing of the Shaolin Hung's Pugilism

 <See Full Article

Ho Lap Tin was born on December 2, 1916 in Cao Zhou, Guangdong. He greatly admired those with a military spirit and the idea of a "noble warrior" in his youth. He first learned Chinese boxing in his home village. His dignified bearing marked him as a man of strength. Later on, under the teaching and guidance of Master Cui Yan Kai whose father was the chief armed escort of the Anhui Professional Establishment of Armed Escorts, Ho Lap Tin not only learned martial arts but also learned Chinese medicine and studied "tit da"- the healing arts for bruises and sprains. This organization belonged to the Northern sect of Chinese boxing. Ho Lap Tin studied zealously and was highly successful as a student in both Chinese boxing and Chinese medicine.

Ho Lap Tin greatly admired Chinese martial artist Dong Fong. Dong Fong had a good reputation and his martial arts originated from the Siu Lum (Southern Shaolin) Temple. In an effort to bring Siu Lum martial arts and its philosophy to a broader population in China with an eye to building the country, masters such as Hung Hei Gune and Luk Ah Choi had handed down the essential teachings (in the South of Five Ridges). Wong Kay Ying carried forward Luk Ah Chois's skills which had been handed down and guarded secretly. Wong Kay Ying worked to further develop expertise in Chinese martial arts and to promote martial moralities. He enjoyed great fame and was nicknamed "One of the Ten Tigers of Guangdong." His son, Wong Fei Hung not only followed in the footsteps of his father but further developed the form. His students spread the form throughout the world. Master Tang Fong was Wong Fei Hung's favorite disciple. He established a martial arts school at Dai He Ji in Guangzhou and opened a "Yee Yong Tong" (Hall of Righteousness and Courage) to coach selected students. Ho Lap Tin formally became a pupil of Dong Fong at this time to learn martial arts. When the war to oppose the Japanese Invasion of China broke out, Ho Lap Tin joined the Chinese Army as a military martial arts officer to train the Broadsword Brigade and to also train soldiers in hand-to-hand combat. He suffered untold hardships, yet was unswervingly devoted to serving China...

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Shooting Star set was developed in the middle of XX century by master Ho Lap Tin on the base of traditional forms and techniques of the Southern Shaolin Hung Gar Kung Fu: Tiger and Crane, Five Elements, Ten Animals, Twelve Bridges, Ten Killing Hands etc. Unlike other sets in Hung Gar Kung Fu which emphasizes the "Tiger Claw" technique, this set includes many methods of "Leopard Fist".
Ho Lap Tin Sifu began his martial arts training at an early age under Cui Yan Kai. Later in Canton he was accepted as a student and started his training in Hung Gar under well-known master Dong Fong. Dong Fong is one of the disciples of legendary Wong Fei Hung and class mate of famous Lam Sai Wing.
The illustrations in this text are of Sifu Ho himself performing all postures for the "Shooting Star Fist".
