Yeung Tim

Part of the Audio Recording of GM Tang Yik from the 1960s. Translation from Cantonese: Janet Yuen

Yeung Tim, a Wing Chun practitioner, was a student of Zi Sin‘s lineage. He lived in Foshan with his wife. They had no children. Yeung Tim was well known in Guangzhou for his Kung Fu.  Back then, the descendants of the early Manchuria‘s Eight Banners “Kei Haa Jan”, were an influential force in Guangzhou.  Some “Kei Haa Jan” would harrass the Guan Yu Temple on Kei Haa Street by throwing excrement at the door.  The temple attendants had to wash the door every morning.  Then Yeung Tim started working at the temple. He sold narcissus flowers at the temple door and would use earthen jars from Guilin to water the plants. Those Guilin jars were very tall and thick with a very narrow opening.  Yeung Tim would hold two jars in each hand and turn them upside down to water the plants.  The “Kei Haa Jan” who saw this were afraid of Yeung Tim’s strength, and so after he started working there, they left the temple in peace.

Tang Pok admired Yeung Tim‘s Kung Fu and convinced Yeung to teach him, and then Tang Syun learned from Yeung too.  They studied Seong Gung and the “Ji Wan Maa,” which Yeung Tim knew well.  Yeung Tim always kept a low profile. He did not formally teach Kung Fu or take on students.

Despite his kept a low profile, Yeung Tim sometimes received challenges and participated in little contests.  Once he knocked out a highly ranked imperial bodyguard who claimed to be able to smash seven firebricks with one punch.  Another time, Yeung had a little “Kung Fu exchange” with Leong Zaan, a famous master from Foshan. They did Ci Sau.  Yeung was a bit more skilled, although there has never been a mention of who won and who lost.¹

Already six years ago this seminar with Sifu Apolo Chiu from Siu Lam Wing Chun / Shaolin Weng Chun took place in Koblenz on March 7th in 2013. The topic was the Saam Baai Fat handform of the Lo Family curriculum and the basic understanding of what the art really is.

This was only some weeks before my three months trip to Hongkong where I could learn further on the curriculum of the Tang Family.

Momentary we focus again a lot on the Saam Baai Fat handform and I keep in mind what I learned years ago.

Thank you Apolo Chiu Sifu for being friends and for opening a world of understanding the Siu Lam Wing Chun / Shaolin Weng Chun art! 🙏🙏🙏
