關於陳儉文師父

當代詠春實力派名師 ﹣陳儉文

中國武學博大精深,尤以詠春拳廣為人知,詠春拳始於嚴詠春,并代代相傳至今,對於詠春拳學的起源與發展可以:「起于嚴詠春,衍于梁贊,盛于葉問。」來概括。 現今詠春人才輩出,黃淳樑師父是其中的佼佼者,而陳儉文師父便是其得意門生之一。

陳儉文師父自幼身體孱弱,在季節變更的時候更經常生病。在讀書時期,陳師父已積極以各樣運動鍛鍊體魄,而在他初次接觸中國武術後,中國武術便從此在他心中留下一份情意結。 陳師父最初接觸詠春是在他17歲(1974)的時候,雖然其後也有學習洪家拳和朱家螳螂拳等武學,但只有詠春最令他追崇嚮往。

在1978年時,陳師父獲朋友推薦下追隨於李小龍的授業師兄,有香港「講手王」稱號的黃淳樑師父。在他開始學習詠春之後,身體也與日俱壯。拋開昔日瘦弱如丫的影子,在師兄袁炎強及各師兄的指導下,進步良多,并於1979至1982年間參與數次武術觀摩賽,成續裴然,令人留下深刻印象。

在80年代初,陳師父獲其恩師提拔為詠春拳館助教,負責協助處理教務。1996年黃淳樑師父接獲中國國家體育委員會武術培訓部的邀請前往北京開辦「詠春拳培訓班」,而陳師父亦因此前往出任助教,協助教授詠春,務將拳學泓揚。於1996年下旬,陳師父在其恩師仙遊後一直協助師母及其兒子教授詠春拳學至2010年3月。 即使在工餘時間,陳師父仍不忘師訓,於1995年起利用工餘時間到廣州市番禺區石基鎮石崗東村及由2010年4月起在香港西半山西邊街第三街西區社區中心開班推廣詠春拳學至今,不遺餘力,發揚光大。
