Movies for Martial Artists — Ip Man

Summer is winding down IMA and we have to go back to school, help others go back to school, or sit back and be grateful we are NOT going back to school. What better way to get our minds of the end of summer than to watch a movie. A great martial arts movie at that; this week, I am suggesting Ip Man.


A semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun.  In 1935 in Foshan, south China, there are martial arts schools on every street corner. Ip Man is the undisputed martial arts champion, yet he has not devoted himself to teaching. Despite this, it seems that all the kung fu masters of the city are eager to fight him to improve their reputation.
