The art Wing Chun was named after Yim Wing Chun even though she was not the founder of the art. The Chinese Martial art was named after her because she was the first master of Wing Chun. Yim was very well known all over the town because she was a very beautiful woman. She sold tofu, which is blocks of cottage cheese for living. Her sifu, which in Chinese means master, Ng Mui taught her the art because she saw potential in the pupil, not because she needed to defend herself. Yim Wing Chun used the art to defeat a bandit warlord who was forcing her to marry him, not because he loved her because she was very beautiful. She later married Leung Bok-chau who was a salt merchant. He later named the art Wing Chun Kuen after her which in English means Wing Chun's Boxing. Leung gave all the credit of the art of Wing Chun to his beautiful wife. Ng Mui may have created Wing Chun but her disciple Yim Wing Chun had perfected it. She invented Chi sao, sticky hands which made it harder for the opponent to deliver good hits, that is if any could be delivered. This was also one of the reasons why Yim Wing Chun was credited for the discovery of the art Wing Chun.
