Over time, exponents of the Wu family brought more elements of fist, animal, and weapon styles into the Wu Family Kungfu, all in uniquely balanced forms. In addition, other southern Chinese Kungfu styles, especially the Choy-Lee Fut 蔡李佛 (Cai-Li-Fo) Kungfu, found their way into the Wu family Kungfu.
Sifu Wu Mei Ling developed the fist form "Yap Mun Kuen" (or Jap Mun Kyun) in the mid-eighties. She had gone to Constance and introduced her first students to the Hung Kuen form Fok Fu Kuen 伏虎拳. However, this form was too long for the upcoming training trips with her student groups to China. Wu Mei Ling founded the "Yap Mun Kuen" fist form based on Hung Kuen, Choy Lee Fut, Tiger and Dragon Kungfu based on the background of her family's deep knowledge. All variants of this form known worldwide clearly go back to Wu Mei Ling. First, Yap Mun Kuen was taught while training in a park in Guangzhou and on the beach on Hainan Island. Since then, it has become a tradition for every student in the academy to begin with our introductory fist form, "Yap Mun Kuen".
