Yongchun boxing, once a popular form of kungfu in the southern China during the Qing dynasty, is gradually coming back in vogue in Guangzhou, Guangdong province.

"After the recent movie Ye Wen, based on the life of a Yongchun boxing maestro, was screened in Guangzhou early this year, a lot of people have started taking Yongchun lessons," said a local Yongchun boxing coach surnamed Chen.
