Lama Pai Hand Sets


The "Kyuhn Po" or list of hand sets that Chan Tai-San gave his students

Lama Pai hand sets contain all the techniques of the "shooting star fists" and "flying crane hands" divisions and can be divided into several different groups including Sahp Jih (cross pattern), Lo Han (Boddhisattva) and Gam Gong (diamond) sets. The cross pattern sets were created by Master Wong Yan-Lam and Master Wong Lam-Hoi for beginners. The Bodhisattva sets are some of the oldest and most important sets and include beginner, intermediate and advanced hand sets. The diamond sets are also traditional but considered more contemporary and influenced by Chinese martial art traditions.
