Branches of Wing Chun

The branches of Wing Chun are a student-teacher family tree within the Chinese martial art Wing Chun.

The different branches of 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.

This is an abridged listing, showing three generations. Additionally, this family tree starts with the Yip Man family because of its size in the family tree as a whole.

Reliability, context and conventions

There is no universally recognized sanctioning body for Wing Chun which governs certification of lineage, nor an unambiguous way of defining lineage. A student may be heavily influenced by many teachers, or even students of higher seniority. A student may have trained less time under one teacher, but identify more with the teachings of another. A student may also pass on an interpretation radically different from what they were taught.

As this lineage relies on existing published family trees, the possibility of contradiction and inconsistency exists. A branch's affiliated organizations and schools have more complete listings of their branch or lineage, and should be consulted for further information.

Yip Man branch

Yip Man was well respected by other martial arts instructors in Foshan and Hong Kong. He was the first person to teach Wing Chun to a wider public. After his death, many of his students formed separate schools. In some cases, instructors developed more systematic methodologies of teaching Wing Chun -- however, there is probably no substitute for direct hands-on transmission of the feel of the art. This has led to varying interpretations of the art.

Yip Man was well-known for having a very quick wit and an acid tongue. His teaching style, along with the very direct nature of the art and its despising of superfluous talk, infuses the art with a certain edginess. This is probably why Wing Chun is well-known for being split into many factions.

Jiu Wan branch

HistoryJiu Wan (招允; pinyin: Zhāo Yǔn) first taught Wing Chun at Jing Mo Gwun, a school in Foshan, China. When the Communists took over China, he moved to Hong Kong where he continued to teach.

Jiu Wan's relationship with Yip Man is controversial among students of both branches. Some students of Jiu Wan maintain [http://www.wingchunkuen.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=118 1] he studied under his cousin and later under Yip Man. Yip Man students claim that as well. Jason Lau's branch of Jiu Wan [http://www.jasonlau-wingchun.com/lineage/jiuwan.htm 2] claim were kung fu brothers directly under Chan Wah Shun.
