I don't know about 1 or 2 but Bruce takes Ip Man down in real life.
In their prime? No. Ip Man was well past his prime when he trained Bruce Lee, and he could still fight.
Not sure how that shows Ip to be better than Bruce. I'm sure if Bruce lived to be 60, which is around the age Ip met Bruce, Bruce would still be able to train & fight better than most of his students too.
Bruce won more titles, trained more champions, spent more time studying and perfecting his body and revolutionalized the art of fighting more than Ip did. Bruce just has more feats.
@Shamelesslysupportinaznballers: Have you ever practiced wing chun? Cause I have. And it's has nothing! to do with being buff at all. My old Sifu took down a dude twice his size in class. The style was created by a nuns to fight soldiers and it worked very well. Think about that.
It's not a fight between a 300lb WWE wrestler vs Ip Man, this is against Bruce Lee who did practiced Wing Chun.
@Nelomaxwell: When you have 2 people of equal or similar skills in a fight, physical attributes is what can sway the outcome. A 5' women that knows what she is doing can take down a man that is 7' if he can't fight, but if the 7' man can fight, it's not so easy anymore.
But my whole point was that we know what Bruce was capable of. We know how fast, strong, skilled & dedicated to perfecting his mind & body but can the same be said about ip? There's not much recorded about what he did other then he was a master of wing chun and that's it.
Where are the feats for Ip & how does that stack up to Bruce?
Round 1. No Morals -Bruce Lee. His Jeet Kune Do has got no morals. Just strike the easiest way with maximum damage.
Round 2. Morals -Still Bruce Lee. Ip Man is more of a pacifist than his student. He is even less hostile to other disciplines.
Round 3. Real Life versions. -Again. Bruce Lee. Ip Man is a master of a refined version of Wing Chun that deviated from the traditional style. He incorporated multiple styles including some Japanese ones to improve his version of Wing Chun. Bruce Lee, on the other hand, took this some steps further. First, with his Jun Fan Kung Fu, he applied strength into the speed-centric "Ip-Man Wing Chun". Then he cross-trained with more styles to create Jeet Kune Do. Not to mention he obsessed in reaching the peak of human conditioning.
