The History of Wing Chun

2. The origin of Wing Chun

Wing Chun is a branch of Chinese traditional Nan Quan. It is said that Wing Chun was originated from the middle times of the Qing dynasty. At the very beginning, it was prevalent in Guangdong and Fujian provinces. Wing Chun was created by Yan Sanliang who lived in a small village named wing chun in Fujian Province. Then people called it as Wing Chun. It is also said that Wing Chun was created by the material arts master Wu Mei and later on he taught it to his student Yan Yongchun(Yan Sanliang). So it was called as Wing Chun.

At the early times of the Qing dynasty, the secret organization named Tian Di Hui( Hong Men)with a slogan of “overthrowing the Qing dynasty while supporting the Ming dynasty and enforcing justice on behalf of heaven” was severely suppressed by the Qing government, thus resulting in those Hong Men brothers escaped and homeless. Yan Er, the father of Yan Yongchun, was excellent in Quan. He was the director of Hong Men in Quanzhou city. Owing to wanted by the government, he took his daughter Yan Yongchun from his hometown to the town Lian Cheng(the origin place of Lian Cheng Quan). They made a living on selling tofu there. One day, an old man saw her practicing Kung fu, the old man came up to teach. The old man thought she  had a talent ,so he decided to teach what has mastered to him. Subsequently, Yan Yongchun combined what the old man taught with his father’s method, then created her own style--Wing Chun. Since then, Yan Yongchun continued to escape until she came to the southern areas. She ultimately taught students in Guang Dong province. Then her students continued to teach what she taught to other students, which made a major contribution to the widespread and development of Wing Chun.

In the period of Tai Ping Rebellion, at that time(1954), Li Wenmao led his forces to fight against the Qing dynasty, which resulted in Cantonese Opera was banned for more than 15 years. Er Ti once learned Hong Quan(it was changed into Shaolin Quan later). According to the book The Summary of Wing Chun Bai He Quan, Bai He Quan was created by Fang Qiliang in the period of 1644-1662 in Fujian province. One day, Fang Qiliang saw a white crane flying in the blue sky and then rested on the roof of her house. The white crane performed different kinds of postures against her attacks. Eventually, she was deeply touched by the white crane and decided to create a sort of Quan on the basis of those postures. After many years’ research and development, she ultimately created Bai He Quan.

Bai He Quan had a most profound influence on the town Wing Chun and there were the largest number of people who learned it in the town Wing Chun. Therefore, Bai He Quan theoretically and technically formed a special system with Wing Chun town’s humanistic and geographic characteristics. Because most people were from the town Wing Chun, people gave it the name Wing Chun Bai He Quan. Actually, Wing Chun was originated from Bai He Quan. Bai He Quan firstly created by Fang Qiniang has been improved by three generations and then was succeed by Wu Mei.

As the Origin of Wing Chun (written by Ye Wen) recorded, Wu Mei was a famous master. After Shaolin Temple was firing, the five masters in the South Shaolin Temple made their living at different places. It is said that zen master Zhi Shan left for Guang Dong Province. Therefore, he became the initial master of Wing Chun in Guang Dong areas. There was a story in relation to his disciple Liang Erti about “exchange Quan with gun stick”. In a word, it has been proved that Wing Chun was a typical Quan derived from the South Shaolin Temple. In essence, some other schools of The south Shaolin such as Hong Quan, Cai Li Fo Quan, Liu Quan and Mo Jia Quan were all originated from Fo Shan city of Guang Dong province rather than Fujian province.

Later on, material arts was severely prohibited on China’s continent, so Wing Chun as wel as Chinese traditional material arts were gaining a booming development in Hong Kong. Wing Chun which was well summarized by Liang Ting and its effective means of transmission resulted in a widespread of Wing Chun throughout the world in the next 40 years. Up until now, Liang Ting’s Wing Chun was continuously developing by means of WT material arts training schools. Its rapid development gradually stimulated the formation and development of other kinds of nationwide material arts training schools, which were warmly welcome by the masses.

Wing Tsun was the English name of Wing Chun. When bringing Wing Tsun into China, in order to distinguish Wing Tsun and Wing Chun originated in China, Wing Tsun developed by means of WT training school( a platform named Wingtimes.net).

In the middle times of 1960s, Bruce Lee introduced Chinese Kung fu on American material arts magazines. He has referred to Wing Chun which was spread in America and Canada. At that time, Bruce Lee did not consciously introduce the origin of Chinese Kung fu, but he stepped into the Hollywood and successfully became a movie actor because of his prominent performance of Chinese Kung fu.

Later on, Wing Chun Athletic Association was established in Hong Kong. The short name for Wing Chun was WC, however, in English world, WC commonly referred to as water closet, ultimately it was turned into another name Ving Tsun Athletic Association. Therefore, at early times, Wing Chun Athletic Association was promoted in name of Ving Tsun.

However, there was also no “v” in Guang Dong dialects. After the Wing Chun master Liang Ting left Wing Chun Athletic Association to set up his own material arts groups, he called its English name Wing Tsun.

In 1973, when Liang Ting formally registered Wing Tsun Leung Ting Material Art Association. Subsequently, it changed many times to adapt to international needs. So far, it became International Wing Tsun Association( a nonprofit organization in Hong Kong).

Then all students used the name International Wing Tsun Association to transmit and promote Chinese Wing Chun in worldwide. Up to now, it has become the largest international Wing Chun organization and the biggest Wing Chun group in the world. Actually, most people often used Wing Chun and Wing Tsun at the same time. There was no difference between them.

The figures of Wing Chun

When it comes to the origin of Wing Chun, there existed several different sayings.

There was no confirmation about the origin of Wing Chun. As Ye Wen said, Liang Bochou married Yan Yongchun in Yun Nan province and then he learned Wing Chun from his wife.

The successive history of Wing Chun was following: Wu Mei Shi Tai taught to Yan Yongchun, then Yan taught his husband, next her husband taught Liang Langui, then he taught Huang Huabao, after that there appeared clear records about its development as well as successive history. Liang Huabao taught Liang Erti, Liang Erti taught Liang Zan, then Liang Zan taught Chen Huashun, Chen Huashun taught Ye Wen, next followed by Liang Ting who spread Wing Chun all over the world.

Wu Mei Shi Tai, was one of the five masters in Shaolin Temple. Chen Wenwei set fire on Shaolin Temple for sake of his own benefits, then the five masters had to leave the Shaolin Temple. In the course of escape, Wu Mei Shi Tai saw fierce fighting between a fox and a white crane. A brilliant idea flashed her mind. From animals’ fighting, she thought how to find the quickest way to defend against enemies. Then Wing Chun came into being.

The initial creator Yan Yongchun was married to salt merchant Liang Boqiu. And then she taught this kind of Quan to his husband. Then her husband taught it to Liang Langui. One day, Ling Langui asked him what name of the kind of Quan was. Liang Boqiu didn’t know what name it was, either. He only said that it was a kind of Quan of Yong Chun. Next, Liang Langui taught it to Huang Huabao and told him it was exactly Yong Chun Quan. After a period of time, this kind of Quan was named Wing Chun.

Huang Huabao was retired when he was 60 years old. Then he was lived in Qingyun street of Kuaizi city in Foshan. There was a very famous doctor named Liang Zan who was a great master in traditional Chinese medicine. He was kind to his patients and tried his best to save the dying people. Therefore, the local people respected him and named him Mr Zan. While Mr Zan made good friends with Liang Huabao. Mr Liang was very relaxed because of his retirement, so he spent much his time in chatting and drinking with Mr Zan. Later on, he talked Wing Chun to Mr Zan and taught it to him.
