New iPhone App “Wing Chun Masters” Brings 400-Year-Old Kung Fu To Life Amidst Renewed Popular Interest In Culture.
Date:6/14/2010

Healthy, stress-busting self-defense App mixes the ancient with the modern and hits big on iTunes store first days of launch

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2010 -- 2010 marks the 70th anniversary of Bruce Lee’s birth in San Francisco, and also the release of “The Karate Kid”, two events bringing renewed popular interest in Chinese martial arts.

A young Bruce Lee was one of only a handful of students to be trained in the ancient form of kung fu known as Wing Chun by Grandmaster Ip Man 60 years ago. Now, Ip Man’s son, Grandmaster Ip Chun, has collaborated with Crooked Creative LLC and Buttons New York Productions to develop Wing Chun Masters, a unique educational iPhone App that introduces the fundamental movements and techniques of this most popular form of traditional kung fu.

The App raced to the top of the “New and Noteworthy” listings in two days of release with comments such as:

“This is the best martial arts App on the App Store” and “A must-have for all martial arts fans – outstanding!” and “It feels really good to see a genuine Wing Chun App that does justice to this ancient art”

Practiced in 54 countries around the world by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of devotees, Wing Chun places emphasis on self-defense and close range combat. When you see Bruce Lee’s ability to throw and control a punch within an inch of an opponent this skill comes from Wing Chun. In fact, a Wing Chung practitioner holds The Guinness Book of Records’ noted speed record for the number of punches thrown and connecting with 13.5 punches a second and an astonishing 805 punches a minute! Try doing that at the gym!

According to legend, one of the Five Elders – an Abbess named Ng Mui of the Henan Shaolin Monastery in Southern China managed to survive its destruction
