    Samurai X is an anime, based on an assassin turned wanderer by the name of Kenshin.

    I've never seen the series itself, but the OVA's Trust and Betrayal (which are a history of the main character) are really good.

    Very dark and moody, but all the same, very good.

    Cool, I will check it out.
    As for the Yip Man thing.
    Through out Chinese MA history you will find teachers with "issues", Yip Man was no more or no less than any other.
    Yang Luchan, of Yang Taiji, had the unfortunate trait of beating the **** out of his students, very few stuck around, those who did, learned the REAL Taiji.
    Mas Oyama liked to KO kis students too.
    Certain instuctors, that shall remain nameless, liked to play "sheath the Katana" with their female students.
    And so forth...

    Crazy stuff.

    But then from what ive read about Mas Oyama, he was a hard ass, so maybe for him, he was training pretty much normally?

    If Yip Man was too ill to do any footwork, how much training did he do in that period?

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

    That's what my sifu said as well.
    I am from the Wang Kiu lineage.

    A numberof Yip Man's first students (Tsui Sheung Ting, Leung Sheung, Lok Yiu, Wang Kiu, Wong Sheung Leung) were proficient in other martial arts before Yip Man taught them. I know that Wang Kiu was a mantis master.

    My sifu told the same story about how Yip Man would just show a move and not actively teach it. This provides a possible explanation for why there are differences in every lineage, since the students were forced to interpret and use their previous training as a base.

    Im pretty sure bruce lee didn't get private training from yip man. He was taught by tsui sheung tin and william cheung mostly.

    Just to feed the fire. I heard from a few sources that because Leung Ting was quite wealthy, he funded (directly or indirectly) Yip Man's addictions in the later years. Leung Ting was Yip Man's last official student.

    I don't think it's a joke though... since it's own the wingchun world website.

    From what I know, opium addictions were fairly common in china back in the day. The saying was, if you smoked more than three bowls a day, you were an addict. But c'mon, an opium addiction is mild compared to cocaine and heroin, I'd know.

    Even a PCP addiction wouldn't explain *this* delusion.

    That's not an accurate coparison.

    George Lucas --> Sound guy --> guy's dad --> uncle --> gass station attendant --> boss --> you.

    That's 6 generations removed and this guy is claiming only 2 generations but to be fair:

    Yip Man --> Cheung --> some guy --> him

    I count 3 generations removed, not 2.

    Whoops,

    Yip --> Cheung --> Jim --> his instructor --> rkonb.

    You're closer than I though, Boyd. He's 4 generations out.
