Foshan is renowned as a martial-arts centre, and at the rear of the Zumiao Temple (and included on the same ticket) is a museum dedicated to local master Yip Man (Bruce Lee’s instructor and subject of the hit 2008 biopic Ip Man). The adjacent and more substantial Huang Feihong Memorial Hall is dedicated to the Hung Gar stylist Wong Feihung, who died in 1924 and has since been virtually canonized by the martial arts community, the hero of countless kung fu movies. An excellent reason to visit the hall is the free martial-arts shows, held at 10.30am and 3pm daily.
