Actually, the lineage has more or less passed on to Lam Chun Fai already. Lam Chun Fai recently made a tour of the U.S. as the grandmaster of Hung Gar, leading seminars at various Kung Fu academies such as Calvin Chin's (http://www.calvinchin.com). But although the title has passed on, Lam Cho continues to be active in Hung Gar, practicing the Iron Wire Fist Form daily.

Hung Hei Guen also learned from Fang Yung-chun, who later became his wife. It was by combining his training in Tiger form and Fang's training in Crane form that Hung achieved a balance between hard and soft, and so began Hung Gar.

Hung Gar seems to be the quintessential union, the fierce Tiger's awesome power and direct attack are subtly entwined with the Crane's elegance and fluidity. The harmonious union of hard and soft elements shows itself in the flow and balance of the practitioner, the forming almost seems relaxing. Yet, every movement has hidden meaning, each elegant hand pattern is a strike which can maim or kill the next sucka wanting to steal your pokemon cards.
