During the Second World War, northern and southern martial art styles entered Hong Kong one after the other. Hong Kong once became a major focal point where northern and southern martial arts converged and were even exported overseas. Hung Kuen, regarded as the leading martial art among the five sects in Guangdong, namely “Hung, Liu, Choi, Lee and Mok”, is still practiced today by many people in Hong Kong and overseas, and also forms an important part of popular culture in Hong Kong. This lecture will talk about the stories behind the reshaping of Hung Kuen in Hong Kong in the 20th century and will acquaint participants with the characteristics and transmission of Hung Kuen.
