                Wong Long Wing Chun is the traditional Wing Chun system that is named to honor Grandmaster Wong Long (Wong Long Ching黃朗正). As one of Great Grandmaster Ip Man’s longest ongoing student (for 6 years practicing 4 hours every weekdays), young Wong Long practiced diligently until the passing of Ip Man in 1972 (GM Wong Long was there in person when GM Ip Man passed away).  

                Of all the students under GM Ip Man, GM Wong Long is known to be one of the best. Because of his dedication and time spent studying Wing Chun, his Wing Chun skill is known amongst many to be second to none. Having trained extensively, GM Wong Long is one of the only few people to ever finish learning the Wing Chun system from Ip Man: he finished learning Siu Lum Tau, Chum Kiu, Biu Zi, Wooden Dummy, and even the Bat Jam Do (many students of Ip Man did not finish learning the whole system but was allowed to teach due to the economic situation in Hong Kong at that time).

                Also known as the “King of Bong Sau”, GM Wong Long’s Wing Chun skill is known to be the most skilled of all the Wing Chun practitioners at the time (why?). Because of his extensive skills, many students and people from different schools have come and tested GM Wong’s skill, none of them could say that his Kung Fu is bad. Known for his powerful and lightning fast attacks (often ending fights with one punch, in challenges and knife self-defense situations), GM Wong is a true representative of what Wing Chun could do.  

                In addition to skill, GM Wong Long also is a very very humble and simple person. As a retired head of security, he now enjoys swimming, practicing Wing Chun, and spending time with his wife. With the true Wing Chun spirit, GM Wong Long is a very humble person that have no ego. No matter the skill or school, students and teachers have come to visit and practice with him peacefully.
