Wing Chun in Hong Kong

Grandmaster Wai Yan, the son of a rich Chinese family in Hong Kong, was born at the beginning of the 19th century. Via his older friend Lo Chi Woon, the young Wai Yan came into contact with the martial art Wing Chun. Wai Yan knew nothing about Kung Fu, because in his opinion, Kung Fu practitioners were too violent and uneducated.

But Lo Chi Woon (who was a Student of the Lo brothers) did have an academic title next to his title in Wing Chun. That’s why Wai Yan kept in touch with him.

One day, Lo Chi Woon asked Wai Yan whether he would teach his son the art of chinese writing (This is comparable to accepting the role of a godfather in the West). Wai Yan accepted without overlooking the consequences of his promise: Now he was responsible for the young Lo. This meant for Wai Yan, that he had the responsibility to master the Wing Chun Kuen too, because this art was an integral part of the Lo’s family tradition.
