4. There are people that have the differing opinion that the art from Weng Chun County is actually White Crane. How is your point of view?
I know for a fact that White Crane from Weng Chun County [Yong Chun Bai He] had a wide influence in Weng Chun County but for sure, we are not referring to that white crane. Inside Weng Chun county, we also discovered that White crane is not the only style practice there. Furthermore, Our researches are referring the name of Weng Chun to Weng Chun Tim not the Yong Chun Bai He.
Within our family, Kwee King Yang had nine teachers. They taught him a number of styles including:
If white crane and Wing Chun is the same thing, then it does NOT make sense because it is referenced as two separate styles by late GM Kwee King Yang.
Additionally, there was a two extremely famous master, Lauw Tjing Tie, from the period around 1800 that came to Indonesia. In his art, he also taught a separate multiple styles such as Tat Chun, Grand Ancestor, White Crane, and Eng Chun (although it’s not exactly the same as that taught by Kwee King Yang).
Don’t be confused to the other type of Wing Chun comes from the Red Boat Opera which became the mainstream art popularized by Yip Man. That style has nothing to do with us.
