Famous Wing Chun Kuen Master, Leung Jan, passed down a San Sik based system of Wing Chun, when he retired back to his native village (Kulo/Gulao). Like most Wing Chun tradition, several variations can be found, just within the differant branchs stemming from Kulo Village. Some Oral tradition states that Leung Janís Sifu Wong Wah Bo, who was also from Kulo Village, asked Leung, to pass on the Wing Chun Kuen system to his remaining relatives, when Leung retired back home. Leung Jan agreeing, wasted no time in teaching Wong Wah Sam, a relative of Wong Wah Bo, who in turn passed the system down to Fung Chun, the head of the Fung Family. Other tradition states that Leung witnessed Wong Wah Sum, practising Kiu Sau methods on a tree, and enquired what the young man was doing. Wong replied that since there were very few Wongs in Kulo Village he was picked on, and so had to learn how to protect himself. Its typicaly agreed upon that outside of Wong Wah Sum, Leung also passed the system down to Leung Bok Cheung, the son of Leung Janís brother and someone named Yik Ying. Won Wah Sum at age 76 taught young Fung Chun (17 years old) who to this day, along side Leung Jan's great grand-nephew Leung Wai Nam? still live in Kulo village preserving the art.

Modern research done by the AWKCRI? suggests the San Sik system was specifically the method that Leung Yee Tai passed down to Leung Jan. Its possible that since Leung was already in his mid 70's, he knew he didnt have the time to teach the Wing Chun Kuen system proper, and used the faster San Sik system. It is theorized that the posibility exists that Leung Jan, if not teaching the exact San Sik set Leung Yee Tai passed down, returned full circle back to San Sik method, albiet one of his own refining.

Oral tradition preserved within the Lo Kwai family, as discovered by the AWCKRI, suggests it was Leung Jan, who help integrate the San Sik method with Wong Wah Boís single archival hand form method, to create the three hand forms, wooden dummy and weapons we see today.

It is known that there are several different versions, of the Kulo Village Wing Chun Kuen System. The version passed down by Fung Chun to his son, Fung Keung, is usually refered to as the Fung Sup Yee San Sik (12 Separate Forms) or Kulo Village system proper. Each of the 12 San Sik contains one cycle with 3 motions, or 3 separate points, totaling at 36. Each Small Set may be practised Solo in the Air, Solo on the Jong (Jong Sau), in a 2 man set, and with the Yee Gee Dao.
