See once-secret training and fighting methods developed by Chinese masters of old, and learn how you or your kids can get started training. Now taught widely around the world, the simple principles and relaxed power of Ving Tsun are just as effective on modern city streets and in the daily lives of Americans.
Ving Tsun Kung Fu, according to legend, originated in the Shaolin Temple a few hundred years ago. It’s said the earliest progenitors were a Buddhist nun and a young woman she befriended, who then used her skills to defend herself from a bigger, stronger bully. The essential truth in this is that effective self-defense does not require size or strength.
Once taught secretly only to trusted disciples, this amazingly simple and direct fighting art was first taught publicly in 1950’s Hong Kong by Yip Man (Ip Man). Yip Man was the only one who Bruce Lee considered his sifu (master-teacher) – what Lee learned from him is why he was able do what he did on film, and why his kung fu still amazes people today. Today, Ving Tsun is one of the world’s most popular martial arts, known for its efficiency and effectiveness in real-world self-defense situations, as well as amazing kung fu health benefits.
The Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy is an authentic Yip Man-lineage martial arts school. We teach the system the same way it has been handed down through the ages. The system has evolved in each generation of masters, but the simple principles have remained unchanged, proven effective in each generation.
