Grandmaster Ip Chun and James Sinclair

Grandmaster ip Chun is the eldest son of the famed Grandmaster of Wing Chun Kung Fu Grandmaster Ip Man.  He has been responsible for promoting the Art all over the world.  In recent years a whole series of movies were made to honour the memory of Grandmaster Ip Man.  These movies have proved a tremendous success all over the world.  It is also a nice touch that Grandmaster Ip Chun plays a part in the movies.

James Sinclair first met Grandmaster Ip Chun in 1981 when James was chosen to perform the Siu Nim Tao to the Grandmaster as an example of the standard of Wing Chun Kung Fu in the UK.

Grandmaster Ip Chun was in the UK at the time of the Royal Wedding of Price Charles to Lady Diana Spencer and as a small token of James’s respect James bought the Grandmaster a Caithness Crystal Glass paperweight to commemorate the wedding and as a reminder of his trip to the UK.

In 1995 when James was invited by Grandmaster Ip Chun to attend the 2nd World Conference the Grandmaster recalled the gift and stated that he still had it on display at his home.  In 1981 when James purchased the gift he was poorer than a church mouse and the gift was a huge token it was very gratifying to hear that it had also meant a lot to Grandmaster Ip Chun.
