Wing Chun Martial

Arts School

Mr. Ip

Master Chan

Please come in


Finish the lesson

for me

Yes, Master

How are you, Mr. Ip?

Girl's stuff, no substance

Watch your mouth, Man!

Master Ng Mui created this

Wing Chun fist style,

the secret is the control of

power with flexibility

It's my honour and pleasure to see this fine class

of disciples you have, Master Chan

Mr. Ip, I've heard that you're travelling

between Hong Kong and Foshan

Business must be doing well,

then. Oh, before I forget,

I must pay you the rent

No hurry, no hurry.

We're good friends!

You rent Mulberry Garden

to me at such a low rent;

I have not yet found an opportunity

to express my thanks to you

Seriously, it won't be hard to

pay back the favor, if you wish


Yes, Dad!

This is my youngest son,

Ip Man, my own flesh

and blood

Tin Chi!


This is my adopted son who has been

with us for a year now,

Tin Chi

The purpose of my trip here today

is to get them a superb master

A master?

Yes! They both have

a passion for Kung Fu

Please accept this tea to show

my commitment, Master

Please accept the tea, Master

As members of our school, you two must

observe the guiding principles

Martial arts learning - genuine

and authentic;

behavior- proper and discrete;

judgement - objective and rational

Understood, Master

Didn't you say that you

love Kung Fu, Man?

Many other disciples

will keep you company.

I have to go to Hong Kong

on business

Dad, take good care of yourself!

Make sure you look after

your little brother, Tin Chi

Dad, I will, I promise


Time to take the medicine, Master

Leave it there!


All hand movements are clearly

directed by the intention in mind;

if your intention is justified,

you're on the right track

Master, the medicine

is getting cold

You have shown improvement


The noble mind commands

authentic style- movements,

which allow stability when you defend,

and invincibility when you attack

The essence of Wing Chun is to follow

one's shadow, not his hand.

Focus on what you feel rather than

what you see. Understand?

Yes, Master

Maintain world peace;

establish the Greater East Asia

Co-prosperity Sphere

You are the hope of

our Empire,

Japan's future rests

with you


Tin Chi, wake up!

Are you having a bad dream?

What... were... you saying?

Are you hungry?

In fact, I'm hungry, too

There's nothing to eat at all

Look! Two huge rats coming out

to find something to eat!

You'll be dead if the

master finds out

Not him, it's me

It's... me... not him

Hush! Since you gave me

a toffee,

I'll help you out!

This is for you

Why do fried double-sticks

only come in pairs?

How nice if there

were three pieces

Drink this one, Master

This bowl is freshly made

You're so busy.

The medicine won't be

as effective if it's reheated

Chung So, you are dedicated

and dutiful,

I'll be happy to see you

inherit this school

Man is gifted in martial arts.

Give him the best

after I'm gone.


Go watch them!



Stay away, stay clear.

Have a smooth voyage,

Master! Give us

your blessing

Our beloved Master... Strolled slowly

and smoothly to the under world...

The sun is setting,

clear of obstruction and ill luck

Lower the casket... raise

the casket

Lower the casket

This is my promise and my oath to Master

Wah Shun:
I, Chung So,

will exert all energy,

with all my might,

to make authentic Wing Chun

prosper for as long as I live

withdraw, reach out, strike
