The different branches of the Chinese martial art Wing Chun can be thought of as
describing both the differing traditions and interpretations of Wing Chun, and
the teacher-student relationships which perpetuate them.[1]
There is no universally recognized sanctioning body for Wing Chun that governs c
ertification of lineage, nor an unambiguous way of defining lineage. This branch
listing relies on existing published, and notable family trees. Listings of not
able students within a branch are in no particular order, and not intended to st
ate seniority or rank.

Yip Man branch[edit]
Yip Man (simplified Chinese: ??; traditional Chinese: ??; Cantonese Yale: yihp m
ahn), also known as Yip Kai-Man (Chinese: ???; Cantonese Yale: yihp gai mahn) wa
s well respected by other martial arts instructors in southern China and Hong Ko
ng. He was the first person to teach Wing Chun to a wider public. After his deat
h, many of his students formed separate schools.[2] Yip Man's teachers included
Chan Wah Shun, Chan Wah Shun's student Ng Chung So, Chua Zone Ting and Leung Bik
, son of Chan Wah Shun's teacher Leung Jan.
Yip Man was well known for having a very quick wit and an acid tongue. His teach
ing style, along with the very direct nature of the art and its despising of sup
erfluous talk, infuses it with a certain edginess. This is probably why Wing Chu
n is well known for being split into many factions.
Notable students of Yip Man include: Lun Gai, Gwok Fu, Leung Sheung(??),[3] Lok
Yiu (??), Law Bing(??), Chu Shong-tin(???), Lo Man Kam (???), Yip Bo Ching (???)
, Wong Shun Leung(???), Wong Kam Yuen, William Cheung, Wang Kiu (??), Wong Si Wi
ng, Chan Chee Man(???), Andrew Ma, Kang Sin Sin (Kong San San), Hawkins Cheung(?
??), Bruce Lee(???), Victor Kan Wah Chit (???), Wong Long, Wong Chok, Lee Shing,
Ho Kam-Ming, Moy Yat, Duncan Leung, Derek Fung (??? Fung Ping Bor), Chris Chan
(?? Chan Shing), Stanley Chan, Chow Sze Chuen, Tam Lai, Ip Ching, Ip Chun, Lee Z
hi Wen and Lee Che Kong.
Yiu Choi branch[edit]
Yiu Choi (Yao Cai, ??) first began learning Wing Chun Kuen from Yuen Chai Wan, t
he elder brother of Yuen Kay San. In roughly 1920 and studied with him until Yue
n moved to Vietnam in 1936, just after the death of his Sifu Fung Siu Ching. Jus
t before he left, Yuen introduced Yiu Choi to his friend and fellow Wing Chun Ku
en Practitioner, Chan Wah Shun, to continue his studies. At the same time, he al
so learned from Chan Wah Shun's student Ng Chung So.
Yiu Choi and his elder brother owned and operated an opium smoke and gambling ho
use and later opened one on Shilutou. They offered Ng Chung So to hold his night
ly classes in the back room of the house. Ng taught from the club for roughly a

decade until he retired, and Yiu Choi moved him into his home and cared for him
for roughly a decade in exchange for further training for himself and his son Yi
u Kay. Ng Chung So lived and was cared for until he died. Known as Dai Lik (Big St
rong) because of his natural power, Yiu Choi taught Wing Chun Kuen to his son, Y
iu Kay(? ?), as well as to students such as Go Bing and Fok Joy.
According to Wai-Po Tang, Grandmaster Yiu Kay stated that his father, Yiu Choi,
was one of Yip Man s teachers. During different stages of life, there was also a t
ime when both Yiu Choi and Yip Man had the same teacher (Ng Chung So). This make
s Grandmaster Yiu Choi both Yip Man s Sifu and also elder Sihing. Yiu Choi is the
5th generation of Wing Chun -- bestowed upon him by Ng Chun So, the title Descend
ant of Wing Chun. [4]

ches. Some students of Jiu Wan maintain[7] he studied under his cousin and later
under Yip Man. Yip Man students claim that as well. Jason Lau's branch of Jiu W
