Late 19th century, in the city of Fu San, Canton Province, Southern China, the famous Wing Chun instructor Master Chan Wah Shun taught only an exclusive group of students. Seven-year-old Ip Man had a burning desire to learn. When approached, Master Chan Wah Shun was impressed with young Ip Man's passion and became his last pupil.
