96-Year-Old Kung Fu Master Carries on Ip Man’s Legacy

On a weekday evening, Ip Chun is exchanging Wing Chun moves with his students, who are often a fraction of his age. The 96-year-old is the eldest son of Chinese martial arts legend Ip Man, the teacher of Bruce Lee.

Ip Chun said the philosophy of Wing Chun is to use gentleness to subdue strong power. He says his martial arts form helps him navigate the society and the way he lives.

Still traveling around China for martial arts seminars and having a regular teaching schedule, Ip has no thoughts of retiring. “I will keep teaching until I can’t,” Ip said. He vows to spend the rest of his life to keep his father’s Wing Chun legacy alive.
