    Yip trained Cheung and Chueng trained another man named Jim(who lives in Anaheim, CA), who inturn trained my instructor.
    That's pretty cool. My boss's gas station attendant's uncle's dad was a sound guy for the original Star Wars. He said George Lucas was a cool guy, if not a bit loopy.

    Yip and Instruction

    I guess he was very traditional in that manner. He had a core circle of students that he would 'show' things to and that was it.

    The stories that I was told, was that Yip would literally walk into the class, do something on Dummy or show the class a drill, not say a word, then leave the room. The students were then expected to work out based on what they say.

    I don't know how much truth there is to that story, but hey...that's what I heard.

    Boyd, lineage is important in MA. If someone is attributed as reinventing an MA and you learn from one of their direct students, the chances of the teachings being watered down is less than if you learn from someone that is for example ten generations removed from the progenitor or 'reinventor' of the MA.

    Like I said, I only studied WC for like 4 months. The reference to lineage was more for credability concerning the information that I had than anything else.

    If that's the way he taught his students, then im surprised people learnt anything under him.

    I can imagine his thought pattern:

    opium, opium, opium, teach, opium, opium...

    training with the unskilled would make him sloppy?!

    Crazy...

    Yip Man was a traditional Chinese teacher, with all that that entails. I met one of his students from the restaurant he taught at when he first came to Hong Kong.

    I have it on his authority that towards the end of his life, Yip Man was physically too ill to teach footwork. However, when he first came down, he was an excellent teacher and very hands on.

    I don't know how many people are aware that he was also a college graduate. In those days, when most of the population were lucky to graduate grade school (poverty, a couple wars...), it was an extremely Big Deal.

    One more thing: I witnessed this old (80-something) man, hold off an earnest attack from a 40-something former prison guard (admittedly, no foot sweeps used) using Wing Chun. Quite cool, as it goes.

    Please explain. Was there a huge difference in training methods?

    Actually, Traditonal Chinese teachers were very laid back and easy going, the classes were very informal.
    You pretty much did you basics, were corrected here and there, mostly by the higher ranks students. If the "big cheese" thought you were promising,THEN he may take an interest in you, and THEN you would learn the good stuff.

    Ronin, is that quote from the Samurai X OVA Trust?

    If it isn't, then it's remarkably similar to what a character says in a particular scene.

    Anyway, back to yip man and traditional teaching...
