From stories shared by his son, this book paints a portrait of the famous Wing Chun Grand Master, Ip Man, providing a set of fifteen principles as a guide to mastery. While there are broad lessons to be learned from this portrait, the details must be savoured. Many of the great figures of history are shrouded in the mists of aggrandizement, but here the details, the fine strokes of the portrait, have reminded to show the humble seeker something about the life of a Master.

Each chapter provides a principle or set of principles to contemplate. You will be richly rewarded if you seek to discern the principles and the man who strove to embody them.

These stories and the principles drawn from them are commended to you for your benefit and learning enjoyment. Let them guide you in your journey, but do not look for them to tell you every step. In this portrait are great treasures for the taking - but not simply for the asking.
