Master Tse’s Wing Chun Notes #116
Story of Ip Man Studying Wing Chun葉問學習詠春的故事 Part 16
“Chinese Medicine is equal to Kung Fu. The knowledge to heal and hurt someone is the same拳理與醫理同道，傷人與救人一理.” After hearing Uncle Leung Bik 梁璧 said this Ip Man thought a lot.
Sometime later, during one lesson when Ip Man was doing Chi Sau with Uncle Leung Bik, just a light touch from Leung Bik felt like a needle stabbing him. He had never felt anything like that before. Leung Bik chuckled and said, “That is the weak area of your body. I hit you with my special fist! That special fist is for hitting the acupuncture points. We have many acupuncture points all over the body but we have 36 major points. 72 small points, 365 points(today they said we have 409 acupuncture points) all over the body. If you understand this then you can hurt your opponent. This is an advanced level of Wing Chun and you cannot teach anyone until you are sure that they are a good kind hearted person. Now I am going to teach you – Hitting the Acupuncture points.” Ip Man had never heard about this before and so paid a great deal of attention to lean and practise it.
