About Me: The reason why I started taking Wing Chun is because I was inspired by movies of GrandMaster Ip Man. Seeing how Donnie Yen Portrayed him got me thinking that, I wanted to know how to fight just like him and so I found a school that taught Wing Chun and that the Grandmaster of this school was a student of Ip Man and a close friend of Bruce Lee.
