As year caprioled from 2015 to 2016,
I was in a cinema watching Ip Man 3 with my wife. 
To me and my wife, it is an excellent
movie with deep sentiments running deep down within me. 

Unlike the previous two installments
where I was enthralled by the lightning fast punches gong-fu moves of Donnie
Yen, what captivated me the most in this presumingly final of the trilogy
series, is the show’s emphasis on the true purpose of life! 
Below are several takeaways;
Always be calm and have inner
peace! 
It appeared to me that Donnie Yen was
no longer as fast and powerful in this series compared to the previous two
sequels released in 2008 and 2010. Age is probably catching up at 52 years of
age, though never a major concern in this meaningful finale of the series. The
lack of power-packed punches was more than well compensated by Yen’s placid and
elegant moves, so soothing to watch. 
For the entire show, Ip Man is always
good-tempered and exudes imperturbable calmness, even in the face of grave
crisis or immense humiliation. 
Therefore it infers that the best
decision can only be made when our state of mind is calm and peaceful. 
Believe that this is a world of Love
not wealth nor power! 
In order to protect the school
against the villains’ attacks, Ip Man had to personally guard the school every
day leaving home early in the day and coming back home late at night. This is
at the expense of spending quality time with his wife, which she lamented
asking why he had to do that? 
In response, there are two phrases Ip
Man said which are particularly touching. Depending on how well I can
recall, the below phrases may not be exact replicate of what Ip Man said in the
movie. Nonetheless what’s truly important is the meaning behind them. 

Quote” 

这个世界不是有钱人的世界,也不是有权人的世界,而是有心人的世界!

This world should not be dictated by
the rich or powerful. It should instead belong to those who are compassionate. 
我们该是小孩的榜样,所做的是为了将来
We should be our children’s role
model, and what we do now is for their future! 
Unquote”
Get the priority right! The people
around you are the most important! 
Instead of appearing in a very
important duel with unbeatable Cheung Tin-chi who claimed to the true
“Wing Chun” descendant, Ip Man chose to spend time dancing with his
wife who suffered from the terminal cancer. 
In the final battle after
defeating Cheung Tin-chi, Ip Man told Cheung that winning is not the most
important; the people around you are! 
其实最重要的是你身边的人!”
