In our curriculum, we teach the Gung Ji Fook Fu Kuen in two parts, Gung Ji and Boc (Fook) Fu.  The Four main sets of Hung Ga are; Gung Ji Fook Fu Kuen, Fu Hok Seung Ying Kuen, Ng Ying Kuen and Tid Sin Kuen.  The additional sets are not common among the many different branches of Hung Ga.  The Gau Ji Lin Wan Kuen was formally known as the Gau Duk Lin Wan Kuen.  The name being translated as Nine Poison Continues Boxing, was considered to be violent, therefore the name was changed to Gau Ji Lin Wan Kuen.  Within the four sets of Hung Ga, you can find the 12 principles of Hung Ga (十二橋手).  These 12 principles are; 1) Gung (hard)  2) Yau (soft) 3) Bik (close) 4) Jik (straight) 5) Fun (separate) 6) Ding immobilize)  7) Chuen (inch)  8) Tai (lift)  9) Lau (stay)  10) Wan (circle)  11) Jai (stop)  12) Ding (test).
