The Legendary Bruce Lee, Wing Chun Kung Fu Fighter (rare footage)
Bruce Lee's History with Wing Chun; "The largest influence on Lee's martial arts development was his study of Wing Chun. After Bruce Lee lost a fight with rival gang members, Bruce Lee began training under Yip Man (Ip Man) in Wing Chun at the age of 13 in 1954. Yip's regular classes generally consisted of the forms practice, chi sao (sticking hands) drills, wooden dummy techniques, and free-sparring. There was no set pattern to the classes. Yip tried to keep his students from fighting in the street gangs of Hong Kong by encouraging them to fight in organised competitions. Very rare videos where Bruce Lee show his wing chun skills in Chi Sao; doing larp, pak and biu entering with punchs, fists and kicks, low and hi combinations. Also doing "Sil lum tao" the first wing chun form."
More History on the Legendary Bruce Lee; "After a year into his Wing Chun training, most of Yip Man's other students refused to train with Lee after they learned of his ancestry (his mother was of half-German ancestry) as the Chinese generally were against teaching their martial arts techniques to non-Asians. So Yip Man took Bruce Lee under private training. Lee's sparring partner, Hawkins Cheung states, "Probably fewer than six people in the whole Wing Chun clan were personally taught, or even partly taught, by Yip Man". However, Lee showed a keen interest in Wing Chun, and continued to train privately with Yip Man and Wong Shun Leung in 1955." - written by wikipedia
