The Tao Chan Wing Chun Organisation re-unites first time since the South Shaolin Monastery burned down 350 years ago the Original Ip Man lineage with the Shaolin Chan lineage under Venerable Chi Sim, Zen Master and Abbot. Venerable Chi Sim, who got his name by the Supreme Patriarch of Chan to remember the last South Shaolin Abbot Chi Sim to reinsert Buddhist values and compassion in modern Wing Chun is a student of the oldest son of Grandmaster Ip Man since 1996 as well as a direct disciple of the Chan Patriarch Venerable Master J. Park. Tao Chan Wing Chun includes the unchanged traditional Wing Chun handed down by Sifu Ip Chun to Venerable Chi Sim improved by the traditional internal knowledge of Shaolin Chan. It also includes Chinese philosophy like Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and Zen Buddhism.
