 Hung gar vs. Choy li fut - MartialTalk.Com
I was just reading about Choy li fut kung fu and I like the sound of it, and there is a school for that right down the street from where I live.
CLF uses more whipping energy for many of its strikes and prefers a faster, lighter style of footwork to Hung Ga. In CLF we tend to "carpet bomb" with strikes over running the opponent with strikes, while (again from my experience) Hung Ga tends look for the "one shot one kill".
So, it is my understanding that choy li fut incorporates the five animals into their curriculum, and it seems like hung gar does the same.
