The tradition of lion dancing dates back over a millennia in China. The original reason for the lion dance was to scare away evil spirits; this has since evolved to include bringing good luck to those whom the lion dance honors and to help celebrate special events
Within the Hung Ga community, the lion dance is an integral part of its kung fu system; building strength, precision, solid footwork, ging, and cardiovascular training.
In Hung Ga, the lion dance shows the school's skill and character. The lion head represents the school's honor and integrity and should be treated with respect whenever it is touch or used. At New York Hung Ga, we maintain these time-honored traditions and show our skills when called upon to help celebrate an auspicious occasion.
New York Hung Ga has done lion dances for a number of corporations, schools, weddings, and community affairs (see partial list below), and can help you celebrate your next special occasion in unique fashion.
