When Yip Man was thirteen years old he started learning Wing Chun from Chan Wah-shun (陳華順
At the age of 15 Yip man moved to Hong Kong with help from Leung Fut Ting, a relative. At age sixteen, Yip Man attended school atSt. Stephen's College in Hong Kong. It was a secondary school for wealthy families and foreigners who lived in Hong Kong.
According to Yip Man's two sons, while at St. Stephen's Yip Man intervened after seeing a foreign police officer beating a woman. The story goes that the Police officer tried to strike Yip Man who used his martial arts to strike the officer down, at which point Yip Man and his classmate ran to school. The classmate is said to have told an older man who lived in his apartment block. Yip Man was invited to see this man and the man asked Yip Man what martial art he studied. The man then asked Yip Man to show him his first 2 forms (Sil Lim Tao and Chun Kiu). The man then told Yip man that his forms were “not too great.”  Yip Man was then invited to Chi Sau (a form of training that involves controlled attack and defence), Yip Man saw this as an opportunity to prove his Kung Fu was good, but he was beaten after just a few strikes. It turned out that the old man was his master's elder fellow-disciple (and so, by Chinese tradition Yip Man's martial uncle), Leung Bik (梁璧), son of his master's master Leung Jan (梁贊). After that encounter, Yip Man continued his training lessons from Leung Bik. By the age of 24, Yip Man had returned to Foshan, his Wing Chun skills tremendously improved. 
In Foshan, Yip Man became a policeman. He did not formally run a Wing Chun school, but taught several of his subordinates, his friends and relatives. Amongst those informal students, Lok Yiu, Chow Kwong-yue (周光裕 (六仔)), Kwok Fu (郭富), Lun Kai (倫佳), Chan Chi-sun (陳志新) and Lui Ying (呂應) were amongst the most well-known. Chow Kwong-yue was said to be the best student among his peers, but eventually he went into commerce and dropped out of martial arts all together.
Kwok Fu(郭富) and Lun Kai(倫佳) went on to teach students of their own. The art of Wing Chun in the Foshan and Guangdong area was mainly passed down from these two individuals. Chan Chi-sun(陳志新) died young, and Lui Ying(呂應) went to Hong Kong. Neither of them took any students.
Yip Man went to Kwok Fu's village house during the Japanese Occupation. He only returned to Foshan after the war, to once again take up the job of a police officer. At the end of 1949, the Chinese Communist party won the Chinese civil war. Yip Man being an officer of the opposing Kuomintang political party, decided to escape to Hong Kong without his family when the Communists had come to Foshan.
In Hong Kong, Yip Man opened a Wing Chun martial arts school. During the period of his youth in Foshan, it was not uncommon for young men from wealthy families to acquire the habit of smoking opium. Although it was illegal in Hong Kong, it was not difficult to obtain on the black market. Yip Man was known to be an opium addict. His fees were considered high at the time. Thus, he needed a dependable source of income to support his habit and his family still living in Foshan.
Initially, business was poor because his students typically stayed for only a couple of months. He moved his school twice, to Hoi Tan Street (海壇街) in Sham Shui Po, and then to Lee Tat Street (利達街) in Yau Ma Tei. By then, some of his students were skilled enough that they were able to start their own schools.
Notable students of Yip Man include: Lun Gai, Gwok Fu, Leung Sheung 梁相, Lok Yiu 駱耀, Chu Shong-tin 徐尚田, Wong Shun Leung黃淳樑, Wang Kiu 王喬, Yip Bo Ching, William Cheung, Hawkins Cheung, Bruce Lee, Lo Man Kam (Yip Man's nephew), Wong Long, Wong Chok, Law Bing, Lee Shing, Ho Kam-Ming, Moy Yat, Duncan Leung, Derek Fung (Fung Ping Bor), Chris Chan 陳成 (Chan Shing), Victor Kan, Stanley Chan, Chow Sze Chuen, Tam Lai, Ip Ching, Ip Chun, Lee Che Kong, Kang Sin Sin, and Leung Ting 梁挺.
Some of Yip Man's students and descendants compared their skills with other martial artists in combat. Their victories over other martial artists helped to bolster Ip Man's reputation as a teacher.
In 1967, Yip Man and some of his students established the Hong Kong Ving Tsun Athletic Association (香港詠春拳體育會).
In 1972, Yip Man suffered throat cancer and subsequently died on the 2nd of December that same year.
Within the three decades of his career in Hong Kong, he established a training system for Wing Chun that eventually spread across the world. :) so amazing :)

terlebih dari semua kisah nyata yg sudah di sajikan di film, pada saat menontonnnya 'LAGI'dan lagi...aku tidak pernah merasa bosan..sangat mengagumkan, mengharukan... dalam perjalannnaya, tak mengenal lelah, tak mengeluh, startegi dan kecintaannya kepada keluarganya,kepada muridnya, kepada negaranya.
disini bukan menilai siapa yang lebih kuat dan siapa yg lebih lemah, tetapi bagaimana kita memberikan pembelajaran bagi siapa yg sombong dan tidak dapat mengetahui dan tidak dapat menghormati. alhasil, teman-temanku sayang.... di pagi hari ini, aku tertegun...ditemani oleh secangkir kopi susu hangat dengan semilir udara pagi yang hangat... menatap dunia, dan mengamati sesama...saling membantu dan saling menghormati satu dengan yag lain...itulah yang terbaik..
