Simple, direct, and deadly - it's the art of ngo cho kun, or fists of the five ancestors. In its approach to iron body training, its reliance on the sam chien stance, and its special emphasis on hard and soft techniques, this Fukien style of kung-fu is believed to be the root of the Goju-ryu and Uechi-ryu Okinawan karate systems. During the declining years of the Ching dynasty, Sijo Chua Giok Beng combined the salient features of five styles from five masters into the formation of ngo cho kun, a distinct blend of both external and internal Chinese martial arts. Aside from being an effective form of self-defense, diligent practice of ngo cho kun can balance the body's metabolism, strengthen internal organs, and improve general well-being. Ngo cho kun is at once historically significant and practical for modern-day self-defense needs. "Five Ancestor Fist Kung-Fu" is a must for those who are interested in the historical connection between kung-fu and karate, or who wish to expand their self-defense repertoire.
