Lam Cho, also known as Lam Kwoon Kau was born in 1910 in Ping Chow, a small village in Namhoi district of Kwangtung province. His parents passed away when he was still a young boy. He was adopted and raised by the famous Hung Gar Master Lam Sai Wing who was the top student of the legendary folk hero Wong Fei Hung.

After the fall of Ching’s dynasty and in the early days of the Republic, Lam Sai Wing was invited to live and teach in Hong Kong.
