- Summary: Wing Chun is characterised by close body combat, requiring practitioners to show speed & power. Wing Chun originated in the 1920s in China. In this bio-pic, Ip Man, one of the earliest Wing Chun martial arts exponents credited to have propagated its popularity, is portrayed as the best of the best in 1930s Fo Shan, China. The bustling city has its own Martial Arts Street where countless martial arts schools have set up shop to fuel the craze of kung fu training. With each new school, the master will pay their respects to Ip Man and challenge him to a duel. Ip Man, is an accomplished martial arts master, keeps a low-profile and will only take them on behind closed doors, so as not to damage his opponents' reputation nor embarrass them in public. Following the Japanese invasion, Ip Man's property is confiscated and his family is forced to live in a decrepit house. Ip Man is then asked by the Japanese army to teach their soldiers martial arts: he refuses as he is strongly against war and morally believes he has to protect Chinese dignity.
