Lok Yiu (駱耀) was a disciple of Yip Man in the discipline of Wing Chun. Lok Yiu Fun was born in 1922 and died in February 2006 at the age of 83 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong after a short battle with an illness.

He began training in Wing Chun in 1950 and started teaching private students in 1959. He opened his first school on Kay Lung Street (基隆街 in Sham Shui Po) in 1961. In 1966, the school was moved to Mong Kok Sifu Lok Yiu also had two other branch schools; one located at 50 Nga Tsin Wai Road and the other in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

His mastery of Wing Chun was well known. However, he was particularly acclaimed for his Chum Kiu form (尋橋) and his Luk Dim Bun Gwan (六點半棍) due to his perfect blend of power and finesse. Because of that, in some Wing Chun inner circles, he was affectionately known as the King of Chum Kiu (尋橋王). In his 50-year teaching career, he had over a thousand students.

He has twin sons Lok Kwen Kwong (駱勁剛) and Lok Kwen Sang (駱勁生).
