Story of Ip Man studying Wing Chun 葉問學習詠春的故事 – Part 5
After that fight, Ip Man’s name spread out in that area. Of course Ip Man’s classmate Fung also went around telling people how good Ip Man was. During this time, a relative, who was like an uncle of Fung’s, came to stay with Fung’s family.
Fung’s uncle was quite old and he also came from Foshan and even knew some Kung Fu. After hearing the story from Fung, Fung’s uncle was curious and asked Fung, “What kind of Kung Fu does your classmate practise?” Fung was a little bit cocky and answered, “Of course the most famous Kung Fu in Foshan, Wing Chun!” Fung’s uncle smiled and there was a twinkle in his eye. Fung’s uncle continued to ask, “Does your friend come from Foshan?” Fung nodded his head, “Of Course! Foshan has good Kung Fu people.” Fung’s uncle did not show any reaction, but said, “Can you bring your friend here? I would like to meet him. We are both Foshan people and we also like Kung Fu.” Fung was quite happy and agreed replying, “You are both Foshan people who know Kung Fu, and you should meet up. I will bring him here to meet you.” Fung’s uncle smiled and seemed to be satisfied.
