History of Our Association

GrandMaster Ho Kung Wah Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long

Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long Pai was founded by Choy Dit Ngau during the late Ching Dynasty in Heyuen, Guandong county. Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long has been promoted within the Hakka minority in mainland China for the last 150 years.
The late Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah was a Hakka native he was responsible for introducing the art of Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long to Hong Kong in the 1940's, Panama in 1950's and the United Kingdom in the late 1960's.
Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah taught Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long in the UK since the 1960's until 1997. During his time Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah taugh many Chinese, Hakka, and a few none-Chinese. During 1985 to 1987 Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah held an open class taking in a few Chinese and none-Chinese students during this time Mr Sean Whitaker showed a good accomplishment.
Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah retired from teaching after 1987. In 1991 Mr Eduardo Barrios met Grandmaster Ho Kung Wah during a Chinese New Year, Master Ho invited Mr Barrios to his House and Mr Barrios became his disciple by ceremony.
Mr Barrios followed his Master from 1991 until 1997 when his master passed away. Mr Barrios was allowed to teach Dit Ngau Tong Long in 1994. Mr Barrios has taught traditional Dit Ngau to many students in the Uk mostly Chinese, but he has also taugh a hand full of personal students, which today will form the fundation for tomorrow.
Only the following students under Mr Barrios are acredited with having achieved or obtained some standing in Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long Pai. List is as follows:
Note: As the British Representative of Dit Ngau Hakka Tong Long Pai under the authorisation of the Ho family Mr Barrios issued Mr Sean Whitaker with his full Instructor's teaching Certificate in 2003.
