Richmond Martial Arts Classes
Martial arts in Richmond, VA & the US
For martial arts classes in Richmond, VA, for adults and young people, for men, women, kids or teens, the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy is a smart choice. Historically, the term ‘martial arts’ refers to systems for training human beings to fight in war, traditionally hand-to-hand combat, with or without weapons, on battlefields where they may face numerous, multiple opponents in confrontations that may last hours.
These days, self-defense situations in public or private may still involve multiple attackers, they may be bigger or stronger, and they may have weapons. Ving Tsun Kung Fu training provided the best options three centuries ago, and still does in modern times.
People train martial arts today for self-defense, and for many other reasons, such as fitness, discipline, confidence, skill, challenge, fun and more. Whatever interests you about martial arts, you can find it and more through Ving Tsun training at the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy.
We have separate Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu classes for men, women, kids and teens, so everyone can focus on the martial arts and their own kung fu training. If you are looking to learn an authentic martial art that has been preserved complete for over three centuries – one that really works for fighting in self-defense – the Moy Yat Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu system is ideal.
The Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy is one of the oldest martial arts schools in the Richmond area (founded in 1986 by Grandmaster Anthony Moy Tung Dandridge), and it’s the only authentic Yip Man (Ip Man)-lineage Ving Tsun school in the RVA metro area offering genuine Ving Tsun (wing chun) classes. Today, there are more than 20 Moy Tung branch schools around the US, including 3 first generation programs in the Richmond metro area.

The ideal in martial arts
Ving Tsun Kung Fu is ideal as a martial art because it is the most efficient way to train and use the human mind and body for self-defense. Ving Tsun is simply the most direct and effective way to fight. As said by Grandmaster Moy Yat, the man whose name the Richmond kung fu school bears: “If you are training centerline, you are training Ving Tsun, no matter what you call it; and if you are not, it is not Ving Tsun—even if you call it that.”
Conservation of movement and energy is one of the primary Ving Tsun principles. Training the horse stances and centerline in a relaxed way develops strong legs and powerful strikes. With will-power and disciplined, serious training it’s possible even for those of smaller stature, like women and children, to fight and win against bigger, stronger and more experienced opponents.
Ving Tsun Kung Fu training can give you an edge even when out-numbered. When you can knock a man out in a ¼ second, you have more time for the rest – and they may lose the will to fight when they see that. With enough training, your confidence can be enough to take the fight out of would-be troublemakers, bullies and attackers.
Authentic Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu
Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu martial arts training methods make it possible to attack and defend at the same time. This means you can knock someone out while blocking their technique – and many other things. Ving Tsun is the safest, most efficient, effective way for a human being to train and fight in self-defense.
Naturally, Ving Tsun training in the martial arts at the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu school also develops great mental and physical health and fitness, skill, confidence, discipline and more. Training is rewarding, and kung fu classes are challenging and fun.
The course and pace of Ving Tsun Kung Fu instruction follows a system, but at the same time it is relaxed and informal. Students are presented with information, goals and challenges, and progress through the system at their own pace, through disciplined study and focused training.
You can train for self-defense, exercise, self-improvement or as a hobby, but, because this is authentic kung fu, a path to martial arts mastery and even Moy Tung Ving Tsun branch school ownership is also available through training at the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy. Whatever you’re looking for in martial arts classes, it’s available at this school.
