ip manFor today’s Ass Whoopin Wednesday film, we turn to a true legend of Martial Arts  and the Kung Fu community in the film IP Man. IP Man is a semi-biographical look at the life of the man known as Yip Man, a true master of Wing Chun and the legendary teacher of Bruce Lee. In the town of Foshan, China, Martial Arts runs rampant with many schools and masters. There is one master of them all that chooses not to teach his brand of Wing Chun known as IP Man (Donnie Yen). He is modest and knows that he is the best, but he doesn’t flaunt it until things go bad in Foshan. The Japanese have taken over China and have made times desperate for the people of China. To protect a mill of workers and his family, he will finally teach his brand of Wing Chun, but will he battle the Japanese General?
