Ling Nam Siu Lum Kung Fu Academy was established in 1984 by Sifu Michael Manganiello. It was the first kung fu school on Long Island that was to open to the public. Prior to that, only private instruction was available.
Hung Ga Kung Fu is a southern Chinese martial arts system that originated in the Fukien Shaolin Temple in Southern China. The founder, Hung Hei Gune, was a student of the Shaolin abbott, Gee Shim Sien See, a master of the Fu Jow (Tiger Claw) system. By combining the Tiger Claw technique with his wife's Crane technique, Hung Hei Gune created the "Tiger Crane System". In actuality, Hung Ga incorporated all of the Shaolin's Five Animals (Tiger, Crane, Leopard, Snake and Dragon) as well as abstract concepts of the Chinese cosmology's Five Elements (Metal, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Water) Theory which can both give rise to, and destroy each other.
Hung Ga stylists are know for their low, wide stances, and powerful forearm development, which, when combined with the unusual duration of their training sets, produces prodigious strength and stamina. Although the Hung Ga stylist is less mobile than other Kung Fu styles, due to the lower, more stable stances, the power generated from torquing the hips produces a punishing impact on the opponent. A Hung Ga practitioner need only strike his opponent once, for whatever he touches, he destroys.
