These rules were set up directly by the monks of Shaolin and Wu Dang monastary or from the leading masters of the various kung fu systems. According to these rules the students has been selected, weather they are worthy to learn the kung fu style. The new students were first instructed by an advanced student, while the master watching their behavior. Only when the new student pass this "examination", he was accepted and personaly instructed by the master.

This rules are known as Mo Duk 武德 (= kanton Dialect "Marial Arts moral virtue"; mandarin Dialect "Wu De").

Respect the founder, your teacher and his teachings


First learn humanity and justice, then learn kung fu


After you learned kung fu use it only for self defense


A true hero never oppress other people


If you meet a man who has no honor, don't teach him your art, even if he offer you 10.000 gold pieces


Even if he is related to you, don't teach him


If this man not related to you, but he is a man of honor and justice, so you can teach him


After you have completed the Hung Gar style even a useless stone will be a peace of gold for you
