Martial Arts Style Wing Chun was developed approximately three-hundred years ago in Southern China by a Buddhist Nun named Ng Mui, and it is named after Ng Mui's first student, Yim Wing Chun. Legend states that Ng Mui was fleeing the destruction of her Shao-Lin monastery and sought shelter at a monastery in Yim Wing Chun's town. The Nun took pity on the girl, who was being harassed by a local ruffian that sought to intimidate her into accepting his marriage proposal. After training with Ng Mui, Yim Wing Chun eventually challenged the ruffian and beat him. After she married, she taught the style to her husband. For centuries, this art was taught in secret to a select handful of students. In 1949, Yip Man brought Wing Chun to Hong Kong, where the style quickly spread to the rest of the world.
