Grandmaster Ip Ching, born in Fatsan, China in 1936 is the youngest son of Ip Man. Other than Ip Man, some of the most famous Kung Fu masters such as Wong Fei Hung and Leung Jan, originated from Fatsan, China.
Grandmaster Ip Ching commenced his training at a very young age along with his brother Grandmaster Ip Chun. However this was short lived as his father had to leave and travel to Hong Kong in search of a better life for his family.
In 1962 Ip Ching and his older brother Ip Chun were reunited with their father in Hong Kong. They both resumed their training under Ip Man's direct guidance. Ip Man taught from his home and today this is where Ip Ching resides.
As well as learning Wing Chun at his father's home Ip Ching also was an avid observer of his father teaching other students. In turn gaining valuable insight on his father's teaching methods. In 1972 Grand Master Ip Man passed away. Ip Ching continued teaching whilst running a manufacturing business.
In 1994 he retired from the business and decided to open his doors to full time teaching which is where Garry McKenzie had the opportunity to learn at his home and The Wing Chun Athletic Association.
