Ving Tsun Kung Fu (pronounced wing chun) is an ancient Chinese martial art that was designed in times of war as an effective military technology. We practice it in modern times to defend ourselves in the streets, as well as explore our own economy of motion, and to develop deeper relaxation. The main principles of the system are centerline, efficiency, and relaxation.
Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu
Ving Tsun Kung Fu is a fighting martial art. Unlike a more conventional gym, these classes are exclusively geared towards learning kung fu for the purpose of effective self defense and fighting ability. Increases in relaxation and physical fitness naturally follow.
Originally made by a woman for a woman, Ving Tsun is a system that builds fighting attributes in all body types, regardless of stature or physical fitness. The three main tenets: relaxation, efficiency and center line focus, all combine to create an effective Self Defense system that relies on technique. For example, women who practice Ving Tsun are able to use it to defend themselves against attack much easier than many other styles.
Training Ving Tsun builds confidence, increases relaxation in daily life, and creates a better body image. Kung Fu training has been proven to aid in relieving routine stress as well as helping in extreme situations.
Founder: Yim Ving Tsun
Ving Tsun was developed by the Shaolin Abbess Ng Mui after the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644 C.E.) fell to the Qing forces, and the Shaolin Temple was burned to the ground. Five monks fled the temple, each going their own way. Ng Mui sought refuge in the White Crane Temple. There she met a fifteen year old girl named Yim Ving Tsun who a bandit was attempting to force into marriage. Ng Mui developed Ving Tsun by studying a snake and a crane fighting, and modifying the kung fu she already knew. She taught Ving Tsun this new kung fu so she could defend herself against the bandit. A conflict took place where the bandit was seriously injured by Yim Ving Tsun.
From Yim Ving Tsun, the kung fu was passed on person to person until it was taught to a thirteen year old Yip Man by Chan Wah Shuen in the early Twentieth Century. Grandmaster Yip Man was the first Sifu to teach Ving Tsun openly. He had several students who later became world renowned martial arts teachers in their own right, including Bruce Lee.... Read More
