There is mixed information decending from the early students of Fung Siu Ching. The most reliable information has been preserved by, Fung Siu Ching's last diciple Yuen Kay Shan, who kept copious hand written notes on everything ranging from History, Technical, Conceptual, Training, Kuen Kuit Ect. These hand written notes were in the possesion of Yuen Kay Shan's only diciple Sum Num, until at one point the written manuscipts made there way into the hands of Yuen Kay Shans Grandson, Yuen Jo Tong.
The Notes left By Yuen Kay Shan , as well as verbal Accounts told to Sum Num, passed down to his students suggest some startling facts, in stark contradiction to what many of the modern day lineages would have us believe. Most notibly the myth of a seperate system called "Weng chun", that the modern day WIng chun system descended from.
According to Yuen Kay Shan, Both of his Sifu, Fok Bo Chun and Fung Siu Ching, who dicipled on the Red Boats with Wong Wah Bo and Dai Fai Min Kam, practised the same system, called Wing Chun. Fung Siu Ching learned from Dai Fa Min Kam. Fok Bo Chun learned from Dai Fa Min Kam and Wong Wah Bo. And Famous Doctor Leung Jan , learned from Wong Wah Bo, and Leung Yee Tai. And they all practised the same system. The only differance was focus and how the knowledge was practised. Some utilised the Kuen To/Hand Forms, others used the San Sik/seperate forms method.
Fung Siu Ching,s early students such as the Tang, Dung, and Lo family have created Hybred approachs by mixing what Fung Siu CHing taught, with what ever arts, their individual families practised. It is known the Fung Siu Ching initialy only taught fragements of his art, such as the Look Dim Boon Gwun , so villagers could defend themselves and loved ones, in times of banditry. Hence we see arts with Wing chun mixed with Hung Gar and other Siu Lum arts, that still preserve the Wing chun Look Dim Boon Gwun and Mook Yan Jong form.Further information about Tang, Dung and Lo family traditions can be found under there specific headings.
