Master Yeung's Wing Chun Lineage :

Master Leo Au Yeung Ip ChunMaster Yeung started training in Wing Chun in 1995. His first Wing Chun teacher was Grandmaster Ip Chun. After two years training with Grandmaster Ip Chun, Master Yeung came to England to study but still went back to Hong Kong to train every summer. Whilst in Hong Kong, Master Yeung trained 6-7 days a week attending all of Grandmaster Ip Chun's morning and evening classes. As there were many foreign instructors and students in Hong Kong wishing to learn from Grandmaster Ip Chun, Master Yeung (who could speak fluent English) usually acted as as his translator.

Due to this, Master Yeung not only learnt Ip Chun's style of Wing Chun, but also how it should be taught to students. Master Yeung did this for a number of years until he started working in Preston England where he began training under Master Samuel Kwok on recommendation by Ip Chun.

Master Yeung began to train under Master Kwok for 5-6 days a week, after 3 years of intensive training with Master Kwok, he became one of Master kwok's top students and chief instructor in the London area. Today Master Yeung still assists Master Kwok with seminars in different countries and he still goes back to Hong Kong to train with Grand Master Ip Chun.

Master Yeung's Approach to Wing Chun Training :

Master Yeung: "Wing Chun is a unique and scientific form of martial arts. Wing Chun's speciality is in close contact combat, using quick punches with a tight defence, coordinated through agile stances for quick advancing."

"The effectiveness of Wing Chun is achieved by well coordinated attacks with simultaneous defence and vice-versa, yet delivering the correct amount of energy, whilst maintaining flexibility and relaxation."

Master Leo Au Yeung Trapping Hands"Chi Sau is a sequence of techniques which develop responsiveness and positional movement. Chi Sau also trains students how to most efficiently overpower and restrain their opponents through the precise control of power and energy."

"Wing Chun training starts with three basic hand sequences namely:

"Sil Lim Tau" (little idea), "Chum Kiu" (bridge seeking arm), "Biu Gee" (thrusting fingers). Following these forms serious of students will learn the "Muk Yan Ghong" (wooden dummy), "Luk Dim Boom Gaun" (six & a half point pole) and finally "Bart Cham Dao" (eight cutting double knives)."
