Kung Fu San Soo is a five-family system representing the different fighting aspects of the art.
The five families are:
Tsoi Ga- the family of punches and kicks
Li Ga - the family of leverages and throws.
Hoi Ga - the family of pressure points.
Fut Ga- the representative of mind over body.
Hung Ga - the family of power.
Based on these five families the student learns to use a combination of punches, kicks, blocks, leverages, throws and sweeps directed to vital points of the human body. Any technique that the student learns does not follow a set pattern. Any of these techniques can change in an instant to fit any situation. By training mind and body to work in synchronous unison, the student learns to control his or her breathing, develop their concentration and then use what is referred to in the art of Kung Fu San Soo as “total body movement”, enabling the execution of any technique with the full weight and power of their body.
