ten) Applications and sparring SiFu Duncan Leung is a former classmate of Bruce Lee and a disciple of Wing Chun Grand Master Yip Man.
He has been teaching Wing Chun for almost twenty years in the United States.
This includes instructing the FBI, Navy Seals, and different police agencies in the United States.
His one-of-a-kind training techniques provide pupils a thorough grasp and teaching in the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu.
His teaching techniques also help his students to improve their fighting skills by using Wing Chun in real-life combat scenarios.
This is known as Applied Wing Chun.
SiFu has created 6 videos in the same spirit of instruction.
The videos are intended to teach the fundamentals of the first and second forms, Chi Sau, Trapping Hands and Training Drills, and Wooden Man and Kicks.
SiFu himself narrates them.
They also provide his observations on various combat tactics.
As one of just a few pupils directly trained by the late Grandmaster Yip (Ip) Man, Sifu Duncan Leung has forged his own strong reputation in the vast world of Wing Chun kung fu.
It was a reputation earned not only through teaching hand-to-hand combat strategies to US police SWAT teams and other elite units, but also through the many challenge fights that led Leung to apply the lessons learned in developing his own take on the Chinese kung fu system, which he calls Applied Wing Chun.
WHERE CAN I FIND KICKS IN WING CHUN?
A widespread misconception is that wing chun consists almost entirely of hand skills.
Wing chun offers excellent kicking techniques.
Some claim there are eight kicks.
There are eight different sources of kicks.
They are given by many sources of electricity and may be utilized in various ways in various conditions.
Many kicks can originate from a same source.
They are somewhat complicated and difficult to learn.
They only require practice and comprehension.
As a result, the majority of kicks are not taught until the learner has mastered the hands, posture, and movement.
So, if you discontinue training after the first year, you will lose out on the finest kicks in martial arts!

During the early 1950s, Chinese martial arts were immensely popular among Hong Kong’s youth and working class.
There were several styles available, including Hung Gar, White Crane, Dragon type, and Choy Lai Fut, but no one had heard of Wing Chun.
Yip Guy, a young man from Foshan, China, was there at the time.
He learnt the art in China and then had additional instruction from Leung Bik.
He started his teaching career with the Restaurant Association.
Later, he established his own little school in his house in the resettlement area, with 100-150 square feet of space.
Years passed, and he had taught quite a few talented students; thus, the technique became recognized to the general public.
At the period, different styles often and privately challenged each other.
Early Yip Man disciples like Lok Yiu and Wong Sheung Leung were the most active and performed well in all of the contests.
The main servicing station of the Kowloon Motor Bus Company was only a few streets away from Yip Man’s school, and the workers were the first to enroll in the school after the restaurant workers.
Then students from adjacent St. Frances Xavier, including Bruce Lee and Hawkins Cheung, began to join.
At the time, the economy was in shambles.
Every day, hundreds of Chinese refugees arrived in Hong Kong, and finding work for everyone proved difficult.
The pay was modest, and the hours were long.
This made it extremely difficult for kids to train.
Early pupils such as Leung Sheung, Lok Yiu, and Wong Sheung Leung established their own schools, and others such as Tsui Sheung Tin began to teach privately.
Yip Man had stopped teaching before his death in 1972, yet he was still consulted regarding Wing Chun.
He lived a difficult existence in Hong Kong in his early years, but in his old age, some wealthy pupils, including Dung Sing and Chan Jee Chu, Hong Kong Royal Police investigators, came to help him.
He was considered the family’s leader and enjoyed a few excellent years before his death.
Unfortunately, he did not pick a successor to continue Wing Chun’s leadership.
It is likely that he had not met anybody he loved, that he had never found anyone worthy, or that he was just unconcerned with the problem at that late point of his life.
Whatever the circumstances, Grand Master Yip Man was the style’s final Grand Master.
After his death, family members gradually realized that they were on their own.
Wing Chun is now a worldwide family with schools all over the world.
Any effective organization requires a leader to unify everyone and help everyone work together, yet for a number of reasons, Yip Man’s successors and pupils who would be most suited to unite and lead us have either been unwilling or unable to do so.
Now, 27 years after Yip Man’s death, the Wing Chun family is becoming increasingly estranged.
Without leadership, some people begin to educate in their own style and criticize those who do not agree with them.
Some even come up with notions that Yip Man never taught them.
There are also others who claim to be the sole “genuine” Wing Chun teachers.
They claim that the only real Wing Chun instructors are those who have been tested and proven to be certified.
Unfortunately, such allegations undermine the movement’s legitimacy and will only serve to split the Wing Chun family.
We’re talking about Wing Chun, a combat form of martial arts.
It takes a long time to learn and practice with it.
To obtain combat experience, one must spend it in combat.
This is quite important; it can be the difference between life and death.
It is not something for which you pay me and I xerox a copy for you.
That is not the case.
Anyone who has studied, trained, and struggled with it for a long time should have grasped certain fundamental principles.
How can somebody dismiss everyone else’s experiences while proclaiming themselves the sole “real” artist in the world and attempting to guide others with such an attitude? The fundamentals of Wing Chun are demonstrated in the forms Yip Man left us, but he orally schooled us on concepts and philosophies.
Each person may understand the ideas differently.
I’m sure Yip Man would be pleased if we who learnt from him continued to reap the blessings he provided.
Wing Chun might develop if we had solid leadership to bring everyone together, trade and embrace each other’s experience and ideas with open minds.
Everyone would profit from the information.
Without this strong camaraderie and support among Wing Chun members, the principles and theories Yip Man bequeathed us would be weakened from generation to generation, and the style will one day be forgotten.
Wing Chun will thereafter be merely a moniker in Martial Arts history.

THE IP MAN I KNEW was soft-spoken, kind, enjoyed jokes, walked firmly, never grumbled, at least not in front of me, never spoke behind anyone’s back, and seldom talked about himself.
He was extremely polished, never saying anything that would anger people.
When I was in ordinary school, anytime a student asked him a question, he would always ask the student to think about it and then tell him the solution, and he would always commend the individual and tell him he was correct, right or wrong.
He was very different when I started taking private sessions with him.
He showed more attention and provided more facts, and when I asked a question, he replied without hesitation and was always clear and to the point.
Even though he was not a scientist or a doctor, the beautiful thing about him was that anytime he taught theories and methodologies, he would always come up with some type of life example that made it fully apparent, and these things always stayed with you.
He smoked heavily.
He only had a few close buddies that I was aware of.
They were essentially from the same area as he was.
I performed Chi Sau with him every time we met throughout the years, and he only taught me for 15 minutes due of his age.
When we met, it was around once or twice a week; the rest of the time, I worked out on my own; the sessions were one hour; occasionally he remained two hours to see how I was doing.
He would spend a lot of time in the bathroom reading the papers and staying there for a long time.
When he came out, smoke immediately spilled out the door.
My servant despised him.
I’ve only seen him fight once in my whole time with him.
It was over in less a second.
I was a new student at his institution at the time.
I just seen him perform once.
With one stroke, he drove a large coffin nail all the way through a thick wall with a 6-and-a-half point pole.
That was the only thing I saw him do.
Every time I had free time, he wanted to go to a local restaurant and get Dim Sum, and he wanted someone to pay for it, which is why he requested me to accompany him.
He wouldn’t eat much but would read the newspaper as I sat there.
He appeared to be having a great time.
He occasionally tried to talk about his history, but I was too young and not a good listener for such things, so I never recalled it.
He had quite a few senior pupils with him at the time I had to leave him to travel to Australia at the conclusion of my training, and his older students established schools surrounding him.
When I met with him, he largely talked about Jiu Wan and Jiu Wan’s students.
He seldom mentioned his own students.
He was closer to Jiu Wan, while Yip Man’s direct students were not close to Jiu Wan’s students.
I never discovered why.
Yip Man was the type of person who you could never tell whether he liked or disliked you.
When we were chatting and someone’s name came up, I could tell by the way he said things that he truly despised the person, but you’d never know it if you saw him and the person together.
He never showed his emotions, but he was always courteous and polite.
These are some of the recollections I still have of my SiFu.
