Wing Chun Community:

In his youth, Bruce Lee was a student of the famous Wing Chun master Ip Man. Here’s the true story of how he was taken under Ip Man’s wing.

Ip Man, a grand master of a Kung Fu style known as Wing Chun, is one of the most important figures in the history of martial arts. While living in Hong Kong, Ip Man taught his skills to hundreds of Chinese youngsters. Though Ip Man is well respected for his own accomplishments and expertise, one of the things he’s best known for is being the man who trained Bruce Lee in the 1950s. The true story behind how Bruce Lee came to be a pupil of Ip Man has been documented in multiple works and in interviews with those who knew them.

Lee, determined to become a good fighter, worked hard and experienced tremendous progress under Wong’s tutelage. The promise he showed wasn’t lost on Ip Man, who trained with him too and helped Lee develop a deep meaningful understanding of the philosophical side of Kung Fu. His influence is evidenced by Lee’s “Be Water” quote and other martial arts related ideas. The time Lee spent learning all he could from Ip Man and Wong Shun Leung was complicated by his relationships with his fellow students who shared an extreme dislike for him. The reason they used was based on Lee’s heritage.

Wing Chun Community:

Since his mother was Eurasian, they argued Ip Man shouldn’t teach Chinese martial arts to someone who was of mixed race. During these days, it’s true that it wasn’t acceptable for non-Chinese to learn Kung Fu but Ip Man didn’t see it that way and kept Lee around. As Bruce Lee himself has admitted, he didn’t necessarily join Ip Man for the right reasons but the training and enlightenment he received paid off in a big way. His training with Ip Man ended but a new era began for him there, with the actor eventually opening his own Kung Fu schools and using his skills to become a martial arts movie star.
