About the DVD
Hakka Kei Lun kung-fu (Unicorn Boxing) has had a profound influence on many Chinese and Southeast Asian martial arts. During the 1950s Hakka Kei Lun was taught in Hawaii by the Late Sifu Wong Kook Fot. So effective are its methods that the founders of modern Kenpo karate, Ed Parker and K.C. Chow, used the art to form part of Kenpo’s core training. In this unique DVD, Tyler R. Rea teaches the fundamental details and training of the Kei Lun art. This video teaches 7 unique areas of Unicorn Boxing:
Lesson 1 – Kei Lun Unicorn – Basic Training
This video teaches Unicorn Boxing’s signature striking fists, first form Hei Gong (Qigong) tendon strengthening exercises, and training details of the Sei Moon Choi fist form.
Lesson 2 – Kei Lun Unicorn – Footwork & Stepping Methods
This video teaches the 5 basic footwork and stepping methods of Unicorn Boxing, including: Sei Gok Chuen Bo (4 corner turning step), Yee Moon Chuen Bo (double gate turning step), Hao Cheong Gwat Bo (backward bracig sweep step), Bik Cheong Ma Jik Bo (jamming braced forward step), Jik Cheong Bo (forward braced step).

Lesson 4 – Hakka Kei Lun – Sei Moon Choi

This core form cultivates in the practitioner several essential skills: 1) the basic close quarter attacks deployed to high and low targets, 2) the 3 thorn elbows, and 3) the lead bridge arm deflections. These techniques derived from the first form are at the core of Hakka Kei Lun Kung fu entering techniques.

Entry methods for the Gim Jee Sao, elbow strikes, palm methods, and compound deflection parries are demonstrated.
