Grandmaster Ip Man
Yìhm Wing Chun 嚴詠春 had trained very hard and her soul had grown to a high level. Ng Mui Sitai 五枚師太 very pleased with her and knew that she was good enough to deal with those gangsters!
One morning Ng Mui Sitai called Wing Chun to her and said, “You have been here for the months now. You have learnt so much and improved very quickly. It is time for you to go home. Start getting your things together. Tomorrow you will go back and see your father.”
Yìhm Wing Chun was sad and knelt down in front of her teacher. “Sīfú, thank you for teaching me and looking after me. I do not know how I can ever repay you. I will remember what you have taught me and I will always think of you. I would like to come back and look after you once I have finished my business with those gangsters.”
Ng Mui Sitai smiled, “There is no need for that. You should have your own life. When the time is right I will come and see you.”
The next day Wing Chun had packed all her things and came to say goodbye, but she still had one more question. “Sīfú, what is this Kung Fu you have been teaching me?” Ng Mui smiled and replied, “Think, what is your name?” Ng Mui did not answer her question, but asked her a question instead. Wing Chun was confused. “Sīfú knows my name.” She thought to herself. She did not really know what to say do simply said, “My name is Wing Chun.” Ng Mui smiled broadly and said, “Then this Kung Fu is called Wing Chun Kung Fu!” And from that day this is what the skill has been called.
