Yip Man

Yip Man (葉問) - The Grand Master of Wing Chun  

In addition to being Bruce Lee's teacher, Yip Man (also known as Ip Man) is recognized as being the first person to teach Wing Chun publicly. Prior to this, Wing Chun was believed to be taught only as a closed-door system passed down from father to son and a few close family friends.

Yip Man was born in 1893 in Foshan - a city in central Guangdong Province of southeastern China known for its history of Kung Fu. He began learning Wing Chun at the age of seven from Chan Wah Shun.
