The Hung Ga style is well-known for the famous Tiger and Crane Form, 12 bridges, 5 Animals, and 10 Killing Hands.  Underlying all of this, however, is Hung Ga’s strict attention to stance training and its incredible power.  The expression of explosive power is a crucial part of the Hung Ga legacy, and the famous masters of this style were always known for this ability.  Hung Ga uses the combination of the stance, bridge, body connection and sound to produce its fearsome power. 

Many systems train techniques and utilize supplemental exercises for internal power development.  In Hung Ga the internal power training has been seamlessly integrated into the technique training- so much so that one might say that, in Hung Ga, the technique and internal power training are one and the same.  The external aspects of hand, eye, trunk/body, waist, and stance are combined with the internal aspects of heart, spirit, mind, energy, and strength.  This allows the Hung Ga practitioner to easily and quickly translate the power gained from his training into the techniques and the application of them.
