He had several students who later became wing chun books pdf free download arts masters in their own right. Ip Man was born to Yip Oi-dor and Wu Shui.
His elder brother was Yip Kai-gak, his elder sister was Yip Wan-mei and his younger sister was Yip Wan-hum. Chan was 64 at the time, and Ip became Chan’s last student. Chan lived three years after Ip’s training started and one of his dying wishes was to have Wu continue teaching Ip. During Ip’s time at St. Stephen’s he saw a foreign police officer beating a woman and intervened.
The officer attempted to attack Ip, but Ip struck him down and ran to school with his classmate. Ip’s classmate later told an older man who lived in his apartment block. The man met with Ip and asked what martial art Ip practised. The man told Ip that his forms were “not too great”. Ip saw this as an opportunity to prove that his abilities were good, but was defeated by the man after a few strikes.
After that encounter, Ip continued learning from Leung Bik. Ip returned to Foshan when he was 24 and became a policeman. He taught Wing Chun to several of his subordinates, friends and relatives, but did not officially run a martial arts school. Among them, Chow Kwong-yue was said to be the best, but he eventually went into commerce and stopped practising martial arts. Kwok Fu and Lun Kah went on to teach students of their own and they passed down the art of Wing Chun in the Foshan and Guangdong region. Chan Chi-sun and Lui Ying went to Hong Kong later but neither of them accepted any students.
