LEE MOY SHAN
The Mindful Intention of Wing Chun
By Wayne Belonoha
Sifu Lee Moy Shan, or Douglas Lee, was born in China in 1949. He began studying martial arts at the age of eight and continued training until eventually studying with Grandmaster Moy Yat in 1973 in New York. Lee was Grandmaster Moy Yat’s first student in the United States, and in 1975, he co-authored one of the first books about Wing Chun, called Ving Tsun for Young People. In 2016, Lee’s A Wing Chun Journey to the Heart became an award-winning video series, looking at Wing Chun’s Kuen Kuit beyond the battlefield. Lee is now retired and devoting his life to spreading Saam Faat—“The Heart’s Method”.
