After escaping the Japanese occupation of his hometown of Foshan, China, Ip Man and his family have arrived in Hong Kong, which is living under the iron fist of British colonial rule. Ip wants to support his family by opening up a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. But a corrupt cabal of Hong Kong martial arts masters, led by Hung Chun-nam, refuses to allow Ip to teach until he proves himself- and prove himself he does, in an intense series of fights against the masters showcasing variety of martial arts styles, culminating in a highly anticipated brawl between Ip and Hung atop a rickety table.
