History
Mok Gar (莫家)
Is one of the five major family styles of Southern Chinese martial arts. It was developed by a Shaolin monk named Monk Mok Ta Shi as an inheritance of the Southern Shaolin Fist in Guangdong province in China.
It gained fame three generations later, in the Qing Dynasty, with Mok Gin Kiu/Mo Qing Chiu (莫清矯; also known as Mok Sau Cheung/ Mo Ta Chang) who learned supposedly from a famous kicker, Choy Kao Yee. Mok's reputation was so high after defeating many other boxers that the style, formerly known as Southern Shaolin Quan, was renamed for the Mok family (Mok Gar). Different generations through Guangdong boasted masters such as Mo Lin Ying, Mo Fifth Brother and Mo Ta Fen.
