From stories shared by his son, this book paints a portrait of the famous Wing Chun Grand Master, Ip Man, providing a set of fifteen principles as a guide to mastery. While there are broad lessons to be learned from this portrait, the details must be savored. Many of the great figures of history are shrouded in the mists of aggrandizement, but here the details, the fine strokes of the portrait, have remained to show the humble seeker something about the life of a Master.
Each chapter provides a principle or set of principles to contemplate. You will be richly rewarded if you seek to discern the principles and the man who strove to embody them.
These stories and the principles drawn from them are commended to you for your benefit and learning and enjoyment. Let them guide you in your journey, but do not look for them to tell you every step. In this portrait are great treasures for the taking but not simply for the asking.

Yip Man is not only a great martial artist but also a great man that contributed his gift and his life to the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu. If it wasn't for Yip Man, the world would not have known about Wing Chun Kuen(Wing Chun fist). This book shows the life and times of what happened during the life of Yip Man as told by the people who knew him and what he was all about. From his days as a young man to when he taught in Hong Kong. Most notably, his most famous student was Bruce Lee. This book not only shows the reader what the life of Yip Man was like, but it also shows you the principles of how he lived his life. A phenomenal tribute to a man who revolutionized martial arts. May Yip Man's kung fu tribe increase.
