In 1964, following the death of his wife, Ip Man discovers he has throat cancer due to smoking. After his rebellious son Ip Ching fights back against a bully and is expelled, Ip decides to travel to San Francisco to look for a school. His student, Bruce Lee, has upset the local martial arts community in San Francisco by opening a Wing Chun school, teaching the Americans martial arts and writing an English language book on martial arts. He discovers from an associate and his friend, Liang Gen, that a referral letter from the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association is needed to enroll into a school. Wan, the president of the Association, refuses to write the letter as Ip does not agree with the grandmasters’ opinions on Lee’s actions. After a brief fight with Wan, he leaves.
