    Yiu Choi s first Wing Chun teacher was Yuen Chai Wan, the elder brother of Yuen Kay Shan. He started in 1820 and studied with him until Yuen moved to Vietnam, in 1936, after the death of his Sifu Fung Siu Ching. Before he left, Yuen introduced Yiu Choi to Ng Chung So,disciple of Chan Wah Shun, to continue his studies.In some accounts, Yiu Choi, also studied under Chan Wah Shun
    .Yiu Choi trained under Ng Chung So for a decade until he retired, and Yiu Choi moved him into his home and cared for himfor another 10 years, in exchange for training for he and his son Yiu Kay. Ng Chung So lived and was cared for until he passed away. Yiu Choi taught Wing Chun Kuen to his son, Yiu Kay, and Go Bing and Fok Joy.

    There are a number of vids produced by the Yiu Choi family from their school in Foshan but there were other disciples of Yiu Choi that were teaching in Hong Kong when Ip Man established his school there, mostly under the radar. The sect I am associated with only trained a husband/wife couple (Americans) starting in 1981 in Hong Kong in the complete system that were the first non-Chinese to receive instruction from their lineage. If you are familiar with the Family style, you will be able to note some of the differences in the SLT form practice. They didn't open up to the public until these videos/instructional DVD's arrived on the internet 30 years or so later. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cw3I...E3F2F2D71B0061
