In 1992 Master Ip Chun set up the Ip Chun Wing Chun Kuen Martial Arts Association to act as the governing body to officially certify and authenticate only those of his senior students who have attained Instructor level under his personal tuition in Hong Kong and whom, with his express permission, teach for and represent Master Ip Chun around the world. Each of these instructors holds a personally signed and sealed certificate from Master Ip Chun authorising them as an instructor under Master Ip Chun.
Since 1970, Master Ip Chun has only certified 33 instructors and each are named on this site, in addition to his 2 sons.
Master Ip Chun felt this was necessary because there are a growing number of people around the world who lay claim to teach for, and even represent him. Though some of these individuals may indeed have trained under Master Ip Chun as a student, only those issued with the Association certificate by Master Ip Chun are deemed to have reached the standard necessary to officially teach for and on behalf of Master Ip Chun.
The Ip Chun Wing Chun Kuen Martial Arts Association is administered by several of Master Ip Chun's senior students who are responsible for producing the certificates for him to sign, maintaining this web site and answering any questions regarding anyone who claims to be an Instructor for, or qualified by, Master Ip Chun.
If anyone has any questions or wishes to check the authenticity of an Instructor who claims to be certified by, or qualified by, Master Ip Chun contact:
