Tibetan Lama Hop Gar
When I was a young boy I used to go to Chinese full contact boxing matches put on my the Priests and Monks of the "inner Golden Circle Society" and I used to see this style represented here and there. I used to get so frustrated with Tibetan kungfu, throwing there arms all about, it looked so different than the Taoist styles I practiced that I thought they looked like girls, literally calling it "Lama Girl Kungfu".
Fast forward five years and I found myself fighting one of these dudes in one of the "inner Golden Circle Society" matches. As much fun as I made of these fighters, once I got hit I changed my opinion and fast. These guys can hit and hit hard, later finding out that they train in iron skills all day and truly it shows. I won the fight but not without diggin deep to do so and walking away pretty bruised up to say the least. Good Stuff...
