History & Lineage

Wing Chun Gung Fu is a martial art that was started approximately 300 years ago. According to Wing Chun legend, the Wing Chun style was founded by a Buddhist nun named Ng Mui. Ng Mui was a master in Shoalin Kung Fu and used her knowledge to create a new system. This system was named after Ng Mui’s first student, a woman named Yim Wing Chun.

This martial art was passed down many generations to Yip Man, who brought Wing Chun from China to Hong Kong and is considered the grandmaster of modern Wing Chun.
