Fong Ngan means "Phoenix Eye," a duo-reference both to the Phoenix Eye Strike (actually a variation on the Double-Knuckle Strike) and the eyeball-to-eyeball contact that one attempts to make with an opponent. This form depends on crowding the enemy, forcing wrong moves. Simultaneous attacks and intimidation are common, retreating is discouraged.
At the first sign of a fight, the Fong Ngan Master will do a Leap Attack to get as close to the enemy as possible. Then, glaring directly into the enemy's eye, the Fong Ngan Master will strike with a variety of hand and foot attacks, simultaneously attempting to intimidate the opponent.
