Josh Smith Australian Jow ga Kung Fu Academy mini clip - Chung Oi Chau Biu Kwoon visit Hong Hong
The Chinese and Foreign Chau Ka Martial Arts association of Hong Kong, led by Grandmaster Chan Man Cheung and Master Tsui Mai Lam, joined forces with Master Jow Bai Rong and China's historic Jow Ga schools in creating a series of events for the Australian Jow Ga Kung Fu Academy and Hung Tao Choy Mei of the USA. We travelled overland into Guangdong province, attended original schools of Jow Lung and Jow Biu, we paid our respects to our founders at the beautiful Memorial to Jow Ga's 5 Tigers, we spent time with Jow Tin's son and grandson, visiting their kwoon and finally we participated in an incredible Jow Ga International Tournament at Jiujiang Hero's Assembly in Sheng Tang Village. The tournament was preceded by a banquet for hundreds of Jow Ga disciples who came together from China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, USA and our Australian team. Events proceeded in the traditional outdoor Kung Fu training yard with lion dance. Commemorative plaques and flags were presented to the eminent Jow Ga Masters who had come together. Despite a typhoon which brought wind and rain on and off throughout the evening nothing could dampen our spirits or stop Jow Ga disciples displaying their kung fu skills. The events were followed by auspicious late night supper. We wrapped the evening with our bodies tired and wet, our bellies full and our spirits soaring!
Over the next few days we were received by Hong Kong's eminent Kung Fu body - the Hong Kong Chinese Martial Arts Dragon and Lion Dance Association, we visited and practised at the Ho Sifus' Chung Oi Chau Biu Martial Arts Sports Association(this video), paid tribute to our founding father Jow Biu at his gravesite overlooking the bay of Aberdeen and visited Master William Tsui's Chau Biu Chinese Boxing Assoc . To complete the tour we hosted a banquet for Jow Ga's leaders in Hong Kong, along with dignatories from HKCKA and held another display of Jow Ga Kung Fu.
