Hung Fut is considered to be a hybrid system. Its philosophies are a mixture of two martial art systems: the powerful, hard style of Hung Gar with the flowing soft style of Buddha's
palm (Fut Gar). The system is based on various fighting forms that develop body co-ordination. Hung Fut is a combat method that uses economy of movement in order to achieve
efficiency. Its strategies are to try to throw the opponent into an awkward position that makes defense difficult and counter attack unlikely. There is no need to keep contact with an
opponent, as the system uses interchangeable and flexible movements.
