白鶴拳創於明代,初祖為喇嘛阿達陀尊者,於山中習靜,偶覩猿鶴相鬥,

頓悟猿行鶴步拳理,以八數為原則,創八拳,八步,八指,八拍,八拿,

八踢,羅漢廿四解等技,所謂獅子吼拳技也。

遞傳至昌祖多羅吉坦尊者。

迨清咸同間,傳至昇隆長老。

後傳至五君子之一,黃林開祖先,統流星手,綜五手法,號白鶴派。

黃林開祖先後納吳肇鐘為徒,以祖先聯語為訓,曰:「唯德永耀,守道

超玄。」

吳肇鐘宗師乃白鶴派第三代掌門人

吳肇鐘後傳鄺本夫,鄺本夫宗師乃白鶴派第四代掌門人

鄺本夫後傳江靖邦師傅

江靖邦師傅後傳梁百鴻師傅

White Crane Kung Fu is said to have originated in Ming Dynasty from a Tibetan Lama called ‘O Dad To’.

One day as Lama O Dad To walked through a forest, he spotted a fight between a white crane and a gorilla. Despite the firm footwork and aggressive, powerful punches of the gorilla, the white crane managed to deliver sufficient injuries to the gorilla to cause it to retreat back to the forest. Lama O Dad To was inspired by the swift, evasive and coordinated movements of the white crane. Hence, by imitating these defensive and attacking movements of the white crane Lama O Dad To developed these fighting skills and initially called this martial art “the Fist of the Lion’s Roar.”

Lama O Dad To later taught these skills to Lama Dor Law Gut Tan, then Lama Dor Law Gut Tan taught Sing Long Chong Lo. Since then, Sing Long Chong Lo developed more advanced fighting techniques and called this martial art “White Crane Kung Fu”.

Sing Long Chong Lo later taught Wong Lam Hai, then Wong Lam Hai taughtNg Siu Chung. Ng Siu Chung taught Kwong Poon Fu.  Great Grandmaster Kwong Poon Fu was the fourth generation leader of White Crane Kung Fu.

Great Grandmaster Kwong Poon Fu taught Grandmaster George Kong. Grandmaster George Kong taught Master Christopher Leong, the founder of White Crane Kung Fu Australia.
