Students of the Southwest Vocational College of Civil Aviation in Chengdu, Sichuan (China) established this record on January 8, 2015.

Wing Chun World Record

All the students of the College (20.000) take weekly Wing Chun lessons as a mandatory part of their school program. Wing Chun classes replaced the old Taekwondo ones as part of the school's counter-terrorism training.

Wing Chun is a self-defense martial art designed especially for short-range spaces. So, for this reason, its engagement in extremely small and crowded spaces as the interior of a plane was thought of as more appropriate.

The students were taught by the Chongquing Wing Chun Association, headed by the already well-known Tu Tengyao. Tu says to be a descendant of Yip Man, also known in China as Ye Wen.

Therefore his school and his very direct style would be a truthful representation of Master Yip Man Wing Chun.
We have already talked a lot about Tu, his achievements, and his style, so if you're curious to know more, you can learn more in the article below.
