Yip Man

Yip Man is the most famous Wing Chun master in history. He is credited to bringing the system to Hong Kong from Foshan and therefore to the West. His most famous student was Bruce Lee.

For the information of the reader who has seen the Ip Man movies, they are not factual accounts of his life. 

Yip Man taught Chu Shong Tin, and lived with him for many years. In that time, Yip Man passed the full system on to Chu, and encouraged him to teach Wing Chun. Yip Man advised Chu to focus on his Sil Lim Tao training to understand its essence after continual questioning by Chu.
