    The Wong People Kung Fu Association is a group dedicated to the practice and maintaining the integrity of Kung Fu. The Wong People are a succession of a Kung Fu lineage based on the Jow Ga Kung Fu style. The head teacher for this group is Raymond Wong. Raymond Wong has been studying Jow Ga Kung Fu since he was a young teen and is still studying the same style in hopes to achieve mastery one day. The Wong People are a widely known entity in the US Kung Fu community. The Wong People are advocators of keeping government and commercialization away from Kung Fu. The Wong People's position on Kung Fu is not based entertainment or sports, but education. Kung Fu education is a lifetime study as well as a life style. Experimenting with Kung Fu on the Internet and video can be entertaining, but to seriously learn seek a qualified Kung Fu teacher.

    The next thing hell do is, will focus on moving while blocking. He will do half step. He will block from the side to the left and out to the right. Left and right.

    Again, you want to do this for at least 60 seconds.

    Left and right hand comes out because the opposite person comes from the side to strike, again pushing to person forces away from the intended target and left again and right again on the horse stance in this position.

    What we are going to do now is, put it combine the punches and also the blocks together so you see exactly how it supposed to be performed. As soon as we go down to a horse stance, starting from Sei Ping Ma. one two three and a half horse stance.

    First thing the person will do is strike, half step, strike and from there, he blocks up, blocks down, grab around and strike.

    Other side, half step up, strike, punches, block, block up, block down, grab around and strike.

    Again, this drill should be done at least from 30-60 seconds.

    Again, he turns the other side, blocks down, blocks up, grab around, half step, strike.

    Then lastly for the other side, strike, block down, block up, grab around, half step and strike and up.

    Again, we do not recommend that you learn kung-fu from a video to prevent injuries; we highly recommend that you learn kung-fu from a qualified instructor.
