I really enjoyed watching Ip Man 3, I think this is the best of the Ip Man trilogy. Besides the good action, it also has a beautiful story about humility, honor, love and family. It is about a story of how one man with the right values can make a difference in life. He made choices that defined him as a man, father, husband, teacher and most importantly an inspiring leader. The story of IP Man 3 is about how Ip Man tried to protect his son’s school from being taken over by a band of brutal gangsters led by a crooked property developer. Ip Man is forced to take a stand. He would stand watch at the entrance of the school until late at night while his wife and child were worrying about him at home and waiting for him to come back. There are three main things we can learn from Ip Man.
- Be an inspiring leader in society, work and family
- Be Humble-learning Wing Chun is not about being the best fighter
- Being around with your loved ones is more important than anything else
Please go and watch the movie if you have not seen it.
