Eighteen Year Old Bruce Lee With His Martial Arts Master Ip Man, 1958

Eighteen Year Old Bruce Lee With His Martial Arts Master Ip Man, 1958

Everybody knows that Bruce Lee is an acting and martial arts legend. Yet far fewer people know about his master, Ip Man, who is a martial arts legend in his own right.

Yip Man, also known as Ip Man, was born on October 1, 1893, in Foshan, China. He studied Wing Chun and went on to become one of the most respected martial arts masters of his time. He had several students who later became martial arts masters themselves, his most famous student being Bruce Lee. Ip Man died on December 2, 1972, in Hong Kong, just seven months before his young protege.

Later, Ip Man was famously portrayed by the incredible Donnie Yen in the 2008 film ‘Ip Man.’ Below the photo we’ve included a scene from the film in which Ip Man takes on ten karate black belts.
