Memo/ 洪家拳[Hung Gar Kung Fu]

洪家拳 南派少林拳の代表的な一派として有名。

他の南派少林拳と同様に、南少林寺(伝説の寺で、未だ未発見)伝来の五形拳の型があり、5つの動物はそれぞれ五行思想に対応し、龍:土、蛇:水、虎:金、豹:木、鶴:火、を表すそうです。

洪家拳は南少林寺で至善禅師の育てた少林十虎の1人、洪煕官の創始である、という伝承があります。

南少林寺が清朝による焼き討ちを受けた後、洪煕官は広東省へ逃げ延び、この地に南派少林拳を伝え、洪家拳を創始した、というものです。

史実の中に現れる洪家拳の達人として有名なのは、黄飛鴻。『ワンス・アポン・ア・タイム・イン・チャイナ』シリーズの主人公である黄飛鴻は実在の洪家拳の達人です。但し『ワンチャイ』シリーズ作品中のアクションはかなり派手で実際の洪家拳とはちょっと違う…。いや、映画ですから、娯楽作品ですから、その辺は、まあ、ソレとして(どの辺がどう何なんだ)…。

清朝との抗争の中で生まれた、という創始の伝説に従い、洪家拳は反清朝の革命家の使う拳法として有名ですが、むしろその実戦に即した技が、革命闘士たちに必要だったのだと思います。各国に存在するチャイナタウンのボディガード(保[金票])も、この洪家拳の使い手が多いそうです。

ゴードン・リウ(劉家輝/Liu Chia-Hui)は洪家拳の9代目の継承者です。

Hung Gar Kung Fu Hung Gar Kung Fu is well known as one of major style of Southern Chinese Martial Arts.

As in other styles of Southern Chinese Martial Arts, Hung Gar Kung Fu has 5 Animal Forms that passed down from legendary Southen Shaolin Temple. Each 5 forms correspond to 5 Elements. Dragon:Earth, Snake:Water, Tiger:Metal, Leopard:Wood, Crane:Fire.

There is a legend that Hung Gar Kung fu was created by Hung Hei Gun who was trained under Jee Sin Zen master at the Southern Shaolin Temple.

The legend says, after the Southern Shaolin Temple burned away due to the assault from Qing Dynasty, Hung Hei Gun ran away to GuangDong. He spread the Southern Shaolin Kung fu there and created Hung Gar Kung fu.

A famous Hung Gar Kung fu master who appeared in historical fact is Wong Fei Hung, the hero of "Once Upon a Time in China" series. He is real person and real master of Hung Gar Kung fu. But.... on the film "Once Upon a Time in China" series, their actions are very fancy, so it looks different from real Hung Gar Kung fu... yes, I know, it's a movie,an entertainment, so, it's ok, I see.

In accordance with the legend that it was created in the antagonism against Qing Dynasty, Hung Gar Kung fu is famous as a martial arts that used by revolutionists against Qing Dynasty. In fact, the style of Hung Gar Kung fu is suitable to actual fight, that point is most important for them, I think...

I read it on internet, it says most of bodyguards of China-Town around the world use Hung Gar Kung fu. (..I'm not sure...)

Gordon Liu is a “9th Generation Master” of the Hung Gar style of kung fu.
