There are many pictures depicting Yim Wing Chun and this is one of the most common ones.
There are only a few versions of Yim Wing Chun's story; all of them follow the same basic pattern. Apart from the traditional story of Yim Wing Chun, very little is known about this legendary figure.
Generally most accounts tend to be heavier in detail as regards to her mentor the abbess Ng Mui, the founder of the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu. Madam Ng Mui was said to be one of the Five Elders, the ancestors of modern day Chinese martial arts.
However, just like Yim Wing Chun there is no recorded proof of who the Five Elders were, only their supposed names. It is true that a Southern temple in Fuijan was burned to the ground because of its open support of Ming revolutionaries.
Eventually the art was passed down to Leung Yee Tai, who was an oarsman upon the Red Junk, an opera troup that lived on a large barge. He met Abbot Chi Sin who taught him the Luk Dim Boon Kwun pole form.
Leung Yee Tai taught his pole fighting knowledge to Wong Wah Bo in exchange for the Wing Chun fist fighting skills.
