The long fist system of the south, Emperors Long Fist, was founded by Emperor Sung Tai Jow. It quickly became very popular but only after being kept secret for three hundred years.
The Sung Dynasty, (960–1279) was a Chinese dynasty that ruled the country during one of its most brilliant cultural epochs. It is commonly divided into Bei (Northern) and Nan (Southern) Song (also Sung) periods, as the dynasty ruled only in South China after 1127.
Derived from Shaolin’s offensive techniques, the style gained much respect as the first long range offensive system, a departure from the short range defensive styles of the time.
During the Sung Dynasty the style was taught only to the Royal Family and the Imperial Guard. Due to it’s superiority, the long fist quickly became the predominate offensive warfare system of the time.
Masters referred to it as “the brave father of the Chinese Martial Art” as it was the first “organized style”.
Late in the Sung Dynasty, General Yeuh Fei, an accomplished lance fighter and National hero made further improvements on the style based on weapon techniques.
There are 16 main weapons in the Chueng Kune system. General Yeuh Fei is also credited with creating the principles of Hsing Yee and Ying Jow Chin Na or Eagle Claw style; Southern Sung Dynasty (1103-1279).
This offensive style will enrich your skill set with effective long range techniques, low powerful stances and strong emphasis on punches. While training your awareness, sensitivity and confidence, you will develop an important component for a victorious fighting technique, assertiveness.
