What is Jow Ga?
Jow Ga is a Chinese martial art founded by Jow Lung (1891-1919).
This style of kung fu was labeled as having "the head of Hung, the tail of Choy (and Northern Shaolin)" and the patterns of the tiger and leopard, so it is often called "Hung Tao Choy Mei". It is sometimes referred to by a series of alternate names such Chow Gar, Chow Ka, Chau Ka, Zhou Jia, Chou Gar, and Jow Gar. It was labeled these having the principles of "the head of Hung, the tail of Choy (and Northern Shaolin)" because the essential techniques incorporated the muscular and mighty movements of Hung Gar and the swift footwork and complex kicking of Choy Gar Kung Fu, making it a very effective form of self defense with emphasis on simultaneous attack and defense.
Jow Ga has many empty hand and weapon forms and takes many years to master.
