The celebrated Kung Fu master of Bruce Lee. Multi award winning, semi-biographical account of IP Man, the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun IP Man garnered 12 nominations for the 2009 HK Film Awards in both the acting/directing and technical categories - though it really stands out as a killer Kung-Fu Film, and consequently won for Best Action Director and Best Film. IP Man (1893-1972) is the expert in the fighting style of Wing Chun, and is the mentor of the Legendary International Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee. As there has never been any previous film record of IP Man, this film produced by Raymond Wong and directed by Wilson Yip will be the very first. This is the first in the Trilogy with filming commencing on IP Man 2 in 2009. Starring Donnie Yen as IP Man (Dragon Tiger Gate/Empress & Warriors). Action Direction from Sammo Hung, long time Jackie Chan collaborator. IP Chun - IP Man's son, was a consultant to the movie
Behind ever great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wushu (or the Chinese martial arts school), Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung-fun warriors - ultimately training martial arts icons such as Lee. This biopic from director Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story.
