Grandmaster John Leong (梁崇)



This is Hung Gar Grandmaster John Leong from the oldest Kung Fu Club in the United States, the Seattle Kung Fu club. Leong is my old Kung Fu teacher's (Sifu John Vihillidal) teacher. He wrote the first comprehensive book on Hung Gar, a southern five animal style, characterized by low stances and kicks, for the western world. Here he is performing the Tiger Crane form or suk em chuk.

I am told that Sifu Leong was never flashy but that he was hard as nails and brilliant. I miss kung fu very much.
