Late Grandmaster Yip Man’s words

The late great Grandmaster Yip Man wrote the following words at the end of his historical account on the origins of Wing Tsun:
“Leung Yee Tai passed the kungfu on to Leung Jan, a well known herbal doctor in Fat Shan.  Leung Jan grasped the innermost secrets of Wing Tsun, and attained the highest level of proficiency.  Many kungfu masters came to challenge him, but all were defeated.  Leung Jan became very famous. Later, he passed his kungfu on to Chan Wah Shan, who took me as his student many decades ago.  I studied kungfu alongside my kungfu brothers such as Ng Siu Lo, Ng Chung So, Chan Yu Min and Lui Yu Jai.  Wing Tsun was thus passed down to us, and we are eternally grateful to our kungfu
ancestors and teachers…”
