Wing Chun is the name of a system of martial arts developed in southern China approximately
300 years ago. Its originator, Ng Mui, was a master of Shaolin Kung Fu and used this
knowledge to invent a way to take advantage of the weaknesses inherent in the other
Shaolin systems. This new system was well guarded and passed on to just a few dedicated
students. Later, the style became known as Wing Chun, after Ng Mui's first student,
a woman named Yim Wing Chun.
In 1949, Yip Man, who was considered to be the grandmaster of modern Wing Chun, brought
the style out of China into Hong Kong and eventually to the rest of the world. One
of Yip Man’s most famous students was martial arts film star Bruce Lee.
