Bruce Lee was such an incredible martial artist people often assume he was born with his fighting skills, but just like every other warrior before him Bruce had to go through intense training to achieve greatness.
And many would argue that without the training Bruce received from his teacher Yip Man he would not have become such an accomplished martial artist.
Yip Man (the inspiration for the action movie series IP Man) was a master teacher of Wing Chun and a legendary fighter, but the world had barely gotten to know the man before he died in December,1972.
Incredibly, Yip died just seven months before Bruce Lee, and as this rare video footage shows Yip continued to practice his Wing Chun forms until the very day he died.
Sons Ip Chun and Ip Ching followed in their father's footsteps and become famous martial artists in their own right, even though they were always overshadowed by dad's legendary student Bruce.
