Ip Man Code of Conduct

What is the code of conduct

The late Ip Man (1893 - 1972) understood the destructive power of being proficient in the art of Wing Chun Kung Fu, and learning such and art should come with moral responsibility. Ip Man wrote a code of conduct to remind students that Wing Chun was more than just fighting and this can be seen on the wall of the Ving Tsun Athletic Association (V.T.A.A.) in Hong Kong.
