Statement from SiFu Allan Lee: Truth in Teaching and Lineage
Many years ago, I made a solemn promise 諾言 to SiFu Yip Man and SiFu Duncan Leung that I would preserve the integrity of the art of Wing Chun by only teaching dedicated people with impeccable character and conduct. My SiFus believed Wing Chun to be the consummate art of fighting rooted in the customs and values of traditional Chinese culture and believed the art should only be passed down to those who embodied its moral principles. This is why I have always selected my students with great caution.
A Letter From SiFu Lee Regarding Degradation and Exploitation of Wing Chun
Fellow Wing Chun Practitioners,
Many of us have dedicated a lifetime to learn and teach the art of Wing Chun. With the advent of the internet, however, it has become possible for anyone to instantly usurp our name, authority, and lineage by posting a few lines on the web. The reason I am writing this letter to you today is so that we may preserve the art of Wing Chun from further degradation and exploitation.
