Moy Yat was first introduced to Yip Man in 1957, and became one of his closest students. He now has one of the first and largest Wing Chun organizations in the USA. For 15 years, Moy Yat kept a close relationship with Yip Man, living the "Kung Fu Life". It was at this time that he learned from Yip Man the principles and deeper aspects of Ving Tsun. Never far from Yip Man's side, Moy Yat eventually developed into one of his top students. (Continued at bottom.)
Lineage(s): 1) Yip Man -> Moy Yat
Continued from the Top:
Moy Yat came to the United States in 1973, where he began teaching Kung Fu in New York City. Moy Yat followed his Sifu's example and used the same method to teach his own students. He instilled upon his students the importance of the "Kung Fu Life", the use of the Ving Tsun principles in everyday life. He always said that Ving Tsun Kung Fu can best be learned outside the classroom. This is how Ving Tsun, as taught by Yip Man, is learned. To his last days, Master Moy Yat lived his life very much in this way, spending his time living and teaching Ving Tsun through "Kung Fu Life".
Moy Yat is well respected, both as a Kung Fu teacher and as an accomplished artist. His paintings, calligraphy and stone carvings can be seen throughout his Chinatown school, as well as in art shows which were held regularly in the city. He also carved some of the Wing Chun Kuen Kuit into stone.
The Moy Yat Kung Fu Family is quite extensive, with students throughout the world spreading the art of Ving Tsun. His Disciples teach Ving Tsun in their own schools throughout the United States and around the world, including schools in Canada, Brazil, and Mexico.
Born in 1938, Moy Yat died in 2001.
