Master Lee Shing

Master Lee Shing was born in China in the province of Canton. Being a Kung fu fanatic since childhood, he studied martial arts from various masters including Wing Chun master Chun Wah Soon.

Later, Master Lee Shing studied with the late Yip Man in Hong Kong after having to leave China during the Chinese Revolution. He then came to Europe and brought the art of Wing Chun with him. Already a well known master in the East, he was pursued by the rather small Chinese community at that time to teach his fellow countrymen.

As the first Wing Chun master to travel the West, 40 years ago, he was greeted with great respect and honour. Before the death of Yip Man he was appointed by him as the permanent President of the Yip Man Wing Chun Association of Europe in 1970.
