Ip Man[edit]

  • [To Captain Li] You know Captain Li, we martial artists are energetic. Sometimes we might be a bit too loud but doesn't mean we're not civilized. We're civilized folks, please don't pull the gun. Cut me some slack.
  • [To Kam Shan-chu] No men are afraid of their wives, they're only men who respects their wives.
  • [To Kam Shan-chu] Good kung fu does not depend on age or sex but on how well you fight.
  • Although martial arts involves armed forces, Chinese martial arts is Confucian in spirit. The virtue of martial arts is benevolence. This is something that the Japanese will never understand, for they learn martial arts only to become stronger and terrorise others. They are not worthy of learning our martial arts.


(Ip Man cornered Kam Shan-chu after their duel)

Kam Shan-chu: My northern boxing has lost to your southern one.
Ip Man: No, it's not a matter of northern or southern style. The problem is you.
