Foundation of Wing Chun:
According to Grand Master Yip Man, Wing Chun was developed by Ng Mui, who was Abbess at the HenanShaolin Monastery and managed to survive its destruction by Qing forces during the reign of the Kangxi Emperor (1662–1722). She fled to the White Crane Temple (somewhere in the Daliang mountains between Yunnan and Sichuan), where she met a girl of fifteen named Yim Wing-Chun whom a bandit was trying to force into marriage. Ng Mui taught Wing-Chun how to defend herself by distilling Shaolin martial art knowledge into a system that Wing-Chun could learn quickly and use without developing great strength.
