LEUNG JAN

Both Leung Yee Tai and Wong Wah Bo later passed on their Wing Chun skills to the legendary Leung Jan, a herbalist known both as a doctor and martial arts expert in the town of Foshan. Famous for his reputation as a winner of numerous challenge matches, Leung Jan taught many students in his clinic, which served as an herbal store as well as a martial arts school. Leung Jan’s students included his sons, Leung Chun and Leung Bik.

Some historians credit Leung Jan as one of the first Wing Chun practitioners and teachers who did not have ties to anti-government groups. This may be why his life and accomplishments are widely documented and accepted by most Wing Chun practitioners and historians.
