Tsay Lii For (in Cantonese, Choi Lei Fat) was founded in 1836 by Chan Heung, who came from Canton. This style takes its name from the fact that Chan Heung wanted to dedicate it to his two teachers Choi Fook and Lei Yau Shan, both descendants of Shaolin. The word “Fat” means Buddha and as the temple of Shaolin was of buddhist religion, Choi Lei Fat shows that Masters Choi and Lei were descendents of Shaolin. Choi Lei Fat is a style characterized by very quick and repeated attacks, which end only when the opponent has been beaten.
