Chu Gar History Abridged

Chu Gar Southern Praying Mantis History

The late Cheng Wan Sifu was the successor of Chu Kwong Hua who was the successor of Lao Sui. When interviewed in 2002, Cheng Sifu highlighted a few points on history by saying: 

Lao Sui had a school at Yao Ma Tei. Chu Kwong Hua taught at Sek Hong Gun Hui, a Quarry Association.

I (Cheng Wan) still teach twice a week, 3 batches of students, each batch about 6 people, a two hour class.

The training consists of:

Horse Stance
Tsai kiu - Dui jong,
Fic shu - Dew sao
Som Bo Gin
Som Gin Yu sao
Say Mun Ging Ding
Tong Long Fook Fu Kuen
Say Mun Tao Da

Yip Sui's sister was the daughter-in-law of Lao Sui, and was married to Lao Sui's son, Lao Chun Hung.

Lao Sui was first buried at Ho Mun Tin.

The son of Lao Sui, Lao Chun Hung, (and a student of Lum Wan who was a Quarry Tycoon) gave the money to relocate Lao Sui's bones to Fu Shan Do.

Yip Sui put "Chow" instead of "Chu" on Lao Sui's second grave without consent. In Hakka dialect, Chu and Chow are pronounced the same but written differently.

Long since, a new a new gravestone has replaced the one which was written with "Chow Gar."


Chu Gar's succession was
Wong Leng
Chu An Nam
Chu Chun Gu
Wong Fook Hong
Wong Fook Go
Lao Sui
Chu Kwei - Chu Kwong Hua - Yip Sui
Lum Hua
Zhao Munji
Chung Hua
Lee Wei Yi
Sun Yu Hing
Lam Wan

Wong Fook Go also taught Yang Sao and Ye Xi at the same time he taught Lao Sui, in Hui Yang, (near Pingshan Town) in China, at the Kuan Yin Pavillion.

The emphasis, he said, was "Chu Gar Tanglang You Cha Qiao Dui Qiao" - Chu Gar Mantis differs in Bridge and Counter.
