WUN YUEN KUNG FU Wun Yueng Kung Fu (full name is Wun Yuen YatHei Cheung also known as Wun Yuen Kung) is an internal style martial art created around 220BC by 2 senior disciples of Legendary Taoist Sage Lao Tzu. These 2 disciples (Ngai Bak Yeung & Chiu Chi) developed the style in order to attain & develop the 6 unions. The first 5 unions involve focusing on co-ordination of the body, heart, intention, chi, spirit & movement. The 6th union is the unifying of movement & void (emptiness), that is the co-ordination of the previous five unions without the need to focus on them, actions become reflex. This is the Taoist principle of wuwei or non-doing, action is spontaneous & effortless. Wun Yuen is divided into 64 sections or movements & is more intricate than Liu He Ba Fa Quan.
Wun Yuen YatHei means Primordial First Chi, or Original First Breath which refers to the primordial chaos that existed before the dualities of Yin & Yang were formed.
This system was passed by down to the select few over the centuries. Around 1917 a man named Sung Sai Wai from Mount Wu Tai, China taught the Lee family namely, Lee Chun Yee (uncle) and the nephews, Lee Cheong Wing and Lee Cheung Wah.
Many years later Grandmaster Lee Cheung Wah moved to Hong Kong. One day GM Lee Cheung Wah closely observed a Liu He Ba Fa Quan Master teaching in the Botanical Gardens in Hong Kong, this Master was Grandmaster Lo Chi Wan. GM Lee approached GM Lo and invited him to learn Wun Yuen to further enhance his fighting style. After seeing the potential of Wun Yuen, GM Lo made the decision to put his heart into the practice of this new style. After passing all the secrets of the style to GM Lo, Lee Cheung Wah appointed him the next Grandmaster & Gatekeeper of the style. GM Lo was told by GM Lee that this art was only know by him & his brother who lives in China, and as far as was aware, no one else knows Wun Yuen. GM Lo was the only student of GM Lee Cheung Wah because Lee Cheung Wah’s brother in China told him to find a suitable to pass the art on to so that it will not be lost as he (Lee Cheong Wing) would not be passing it on in China.
Grandmaster Lo Chi Wan passed the Wun Yuen on to his top student Master Cornelius Coelho & so Master Cornelius thus became the next Grandmaster & Gatekeeper.
Grandmaster Cornelius Coelho taught Master Bill Aziz.
