Jow Ga is widely practiced all over the world with its origins in the legendary Shaolin temples of Ancient China. Its main founder, Jow Lung, intensively studied both Northern and Southern Shaolin systems of Kung Fu in his youth, and combined the skills and practical techniques of the two systems to create a balanced hard and soft style of Kung Fu. Strong, low stances, a distinct dexterity in footwork, ground and aerial techniques, as well as a wide range of kicking and hand techniques all point to an influence of the Hung Gar and Choy Gar styles of Kung Fu. Jow Ga is also renowned for its animal forms such as tiger, crane, leopard, cougar, eagle, dragon, and phoenix.
