Capoeira Angola, an ancient martial art of African origin, is one of the many cultural weapons used to break the chains of enslavement in Brazil. Played close to the ground, Capoeira Angola combines fluid, dance-like movements with kicks, head butts, tripping sweeps and the appearance of playfulness or vulnerability. Music is played on traditional instruments to accompany the players, to teach the rhythmic heart of the art, and also to mask its power. In the eyes of the enslavers it appeared to be a joking and playful acrobatic dance, but eventually its power was realized and Capoeira was outlawed. Death was the penalty paid by those caught playing Capoeira during the slavery era. For almost 400 years Capoeira Angola was taught and practiced in secret, and only in the 1930's did this African martial art become legal to teach and practice.

"At the Wu Mei Kung Fu Association, we believe in the traditional apprenticeship method to train students to become the next generation of Masters. Classes are ongoing; there are no sections or semesters. The learning is never ending. There are no “mass production” methods applied to the training. Teaching is individual even in a group setting. Each student is treated with respect as an individual who is unique. That uniqueness is never lost. There is no attempt to make all the students the same. Movements are adjusted to each student’s’ body type and character. This creates the “naturalness” that is essential to all Chinese art forms"

Like so many Kung Fu disciplines, Wing Chun is a very old fighting system, shrouded in secrecy and passed on to only a select few. It was virtually unknown in the west until the 1960s, when Yip Man - the legendary teacher of Bruce Lee - revealed it to the public. Grandmaster Yip Man - who has been deemed one of the most influential Martial Artists of the 20th century by Inside Kung Fu magazine - had other renowned students, including his eldest son Yip Chun. This is the heritage of Sifu Yip Pui (Terence), Yip Chun's most senior student teaching in the United States.
