This blog post features a transcript of a Moy Tung lecture excerpt, with pictures from a special group lesson and demonstration in Detroit June 2016. The video is available to inner circle students by application.
You have to learn to relax under the worst pressures. You have to learn the Ving Tsun Kung Fu technique of relaxation while executing martial arts fighting technique. To relax makes it much easier to channel power. Being able to execute techniques with power is the objective of people who want to master martial arts. That is the objective.
That is not only our objective, but it is the gift from Ving Tsun Kung Fu to all good humans. If you want the power to fight back, the ability to overcome larger and stronger opponents, to end a bully’s terror – then learn real kung fu, real martial arts – not sports. Study the combat science, not something to get a gold plastic trophy or make a movie.
In the real martial arts world, if you ever get attacked, you have no time to warm up. In martial arts training involving a sports direction, it’s all about the warm-up. In real life, you don’t get a chance to warm up. You don’t get second chances, period.
The combat science you train must have the techniques and training methods for your body to develop the ultimate in martial arts skill, for situations where there’s no time to warm up. No time for thinking about it, let alone time for warming up.
So the science that is taught in Ving Tsun Kung Fu is such a way that the human body is ready even when it’s not warmed up. That’s what real martial arts trains you to do; to be ready in a real situation. The physical science of Ving Tsun helps you learn this.
