Your pupil is on TV, Dad.

Really?

Did he contact you?

We had tea and he walked me home.

Ip Man was my Dad.

Judging from his scholarly appearance.

Few could tell that

he's a martial arts expert

and Master to a world

renowned action star.

My parents both hailed

from wealthy Foshan families.

Nothing was lacking in our family

until the Japanese came

and seized everything we had.

My two young sisters

were starved to death.

Dad believed a man should see the world,

and he's a man-of-his-own-word.

Despite his chronic stomach illness,

he came alone to Hong Kong in 1949.

Where is this place?

Over there!

Thank you!

You're welcome!

Coming.

Who is it?

I'm looking for Lee Man, my name is lp.

Master lp

Lee's out but he told me to expect you.

Come in.

My name is Leung Sheung.

They say you're famous in Foshan.

Perhaps I can see for myself?

You will, someday.

Why not today?

Please?

Not on an empty stomach!

Hungry? Be right back!

I'm a martial artist myself,

but I've never come across Wing Chun.

I'd love to see it!

I hear it was invented by a woman

and that it's awesome.

I'm ready...

when you are, Master lp!

Let me clear the room...

Don't bother!

You win if you knock me off

this newspaper.

Are you alright?

I'm fine!

Please take me as your pupil, Master lp.

Let's talk after lunch.

Try our local specialty,

meal-on-a-plate.

Indeed, all-in-one!

Fewer dishes to wash, too.

No more four-course meals these days.

That was a lifetime ago for me.

The recent influx of immigrants

made it hard to make a living.

You won't get a job without a sponsor.

But you must have good connections,

so that shouldn't be a problem.

You don't really need a job,

just open a martial arts school.

Not unless it's absolutely necessary.

Don't you want to teach?

Yes, but I don't want to run a school.

Come this way...

This is Master lp.

Hello, Master lp.

Master lp is from Foshan.

His Wing Chun is awesome!

He'll give lessons on our rooftop

from now on.

Please help tidy up

the place and make room.

King! Sei Mui! Give us a hand!

This way, Master!

With capability comes strong personalities,

making it hard to find a sponsor,

and hence a job.

But such is fate.

If Master had a cushy desk job,

he may not have

become the Grandmaster that he is.

If I wasn't heading the Restaurant

Workers' Union

and had a say in most things,

he may never have taught on our rooftop,

and I couldn't have

introduced Wing Chun to others.

Barbecued pork buns!

Chan Sei Mui is a dim sum girl.

She's a huge fan of martial arts novels,

dreams of upholding justice

like her fictional heroines.

Tang Sing is a cop

who doesn't say much

to anyone but Master

and keeps everything to himself.

Lee King is the darling of her factory.

She's tough with a strong sense of justice,

often speaking out for fellow workers.

You should make hay instead!

Wong Tung is a prison warden

who's a quick learner.

Master says he has a temper like a bull.

Ng Chan is a tram driver

and Wong Tung's best friend.

People come from all walks of life.

Yet Master has three "unteachables"

Halfwits,

wise guys,

and those who can't make ends meet

have no business learning kung-fu.

I think what made him the Grandmaster

was his no-nonsense teaching approach.

He's flexible and never rigid,

so all pupils can learn quickly.

Some are always itching to pick a fight.

That move doesn't count!

What are you doing?

Hey...

Enough bullshit! What do you want?

Bullshit? What about you?

You're a lousy player, spare me the crap!

I dare you to repeat that!

With pleasure!
