History of Wing Chun
In southern China, during the fall of the Ming dynasty, the Buddhist monks of the Shaolin temple (Sil Lum Jee) drew upon the most advanced techniques of the existing Shaolin Kung Fu (Sil Lum Gung Fu) styles and developed them along a middle path which combined both internal and external methods.

After developing the art Ng Mui taught her new gung fu system to a young girl named Yimm Wing Chun, who then ingeniously refined the techniques into an even more efficient fighting system.
