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.
