Telling Stories about Wong Fei Hung and Ip Man: The Evolution of a Heroic Type
****We recently completed the “500 Likes” challenge at the Kung Fu Tea Facebook group. As a result I let the readers vote on what two articles they would most like to see covered. There were a lot of good suggestions but no overwhelming favorites. However, a number of you wanted to see “something” related to Hung Gar. So the following essay will discuss Wong Fei Hung’s evolving role in southern Chinese popular culture.
I also noticed that there was another group of readers who wanted a post on armed escort services in the late Qing/early Republic period. If I can find some solid resources to work with, that will be the second essay that I write. This one may take some time as its a tougher subject to research. Once again, thanks for all of your support!****
