Bruce Lee with his master Ip Man, 1960s.
If you thought Bruce Lee had all the right moves, you should see his teacher! The famed Chinese martial artist and master teacher of Wing Chun, Ip Man was the most celebrated martial arts master of his day. Born in 1893 in Guangdong, Ip Man devoted his life to the study and mastery of the Wing Chun style of Chinese Kung Fu which focused on close range combat. Ip Man trained many others in the ways of Kung Fu, many of who became masters themselves. Perhaps his most famous student and protégé was Bruce Lee, the American actor of Hong Kong descent who used his impressive Kung Fu moves in numerous Hollywood films, including “Fists of Fury” and “Enter the Dragon.”
