The top image has been wrongly portrayed all over the internet as Bruce Lee training in Wing Chun with Grandmaster Ip Man (Yip Man).
While it is Bruce, his opponent is not Ip Man and is, in fact, his father, Lee Hoi Chuen.

There are very few pictures of Bruce and Ip Man training together and, in them, Ip Man looks much, much older than the man in these pictures. Lee Hoi Chuen was born in 1901, while Ip Man was born in 1893 (Lee’s father actually died seven years before Ip Man, however).
