Tith Ngaw Pai is a traditional Chinese martial art institute promoting the Hakka martial art of its founder Lee Tith Ngaw. This martial art originated in the area of Mui Chauw (Meizhou) of East Guangdong province in China. Lee Tith Ngaw (1778-1874) from the village Shuichai Tsuen created it around 220 years ago. During a trading trip, Lee family members met a Siu Lam (Shaolin) monk from whom they learned combat techniques. Lee Tith Ngaw learned those skills from the returned family members before apprenticing with the monk. Afterwards, Lee Tith Ngaw combined the revised knowledge with his own input and created his own specific martial art: a no-nonsense fighting art with explosive movements. Both Lee Tith Ngaw and his brother Lee Kam Kong were well-known in their region. Lee Tith Ngaw excelled in hand skills and Lee Kam Kong excelled in staff skills. The art was transmitted to the Chung family when Chung A Yan went to learn from the brothers. Upon returning home he taught everything to his son Chung Tjong Wah. He subsequently migrated to Hong Kong and taught Chung Kang Yau. In 1957 Chung Kang Yau moved to England. Finally Chung Kang Yau taught Kong Han Lei/ Galland R. from Antwerp, Belgium. Kong Han Lei/ Galland R. has also studied Lee Gar gao with Cheng Wai Chung Sifu from Hong Kong. This martial art and the Tith Ngaw art stem from the same root, Lee Tith Ngaw. Both arts belong to the same martial heritage, and are taught in our school. Find us on FB: Tith Ngaw Pai Kung Fu. In the section “Our story”, you will find a more detailed version of our history.
