Build Your Kung Fu with Private Lessons
Moy Tung Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu is taught in group martial arts classes and in private lessons. Private lessons are useful to students enrolled in regular kung fu class training programs, as well as those seeking a way to learn outside of group Ving Tsun (wing chun) classes with a particular schedule and format.
In Moy Tung Kung Fu regular training programs, the curriculum is delivered in a group class setting, with 1-2 hour classes held at regular times. As a student in one of these programs, you get the information you need to train productively. However, while Ving Tsun is simple, it’s challenging to find your way through the system to gain proficiency, expertise and mastery. Private lessons can help you train more productively in class and on your own, helping you get the most from your kung fu training and life.
Group classes on certain schedules don’t work for everyone, however, and, while highly useful, aren’t required to learn Ving Tsun Kung Fu. It’s possible to develop effective self-defense skills, and even master the Ving Tsun system by training on your own, with regular instruction and feedback from a qualified Moy Tung Kung Fu instructor in the form of private lessons.
In ancient times, armies were trained in martial arts in large group training sessions, but a great deal of kung fu was also passed on from teachers to students in an individual and personal way. Advanced martial arts masters attract disciples who seek to learn everything they can from an authentic sifu.
Grandmaster Moy Tung is an SSA disciple of the late Grandmaster Moy Yat, who was in turn a disciple of Yip Man (Ip Man). This lineage extends back to the roots of the Ving Tsun (wing chun) system in the Shaolin Temple in feudal China. It lives on in the network of branches that have opened under Moy Tung since he founded the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy in 1986. Today, there are more than twenty Moy Tung-lineage branch schools around the US; three generations of sifus actively teaching the Ving Tsun Kung Fu system.

Regular Training: Private Lesson Program or Group Classes?
Following your introduction to Ving Tsun Kung Fu, you may to continue formal training, whether in the form of a regular group class schedule, or a on-going series of Ving Tsun (wing chun) private lessons.
In the regular Moy Tung Kung Fu training programs, you get competent instruction, a convenient schedule of classes, a safe place to train, and people to practice with – a full curriculum presented in a conducive learning environment. You’re given the details, direction and motivation you need to work hard and smart, in class and on your own. If you maintain a consistent class schedule and do your homework, your kung fu and fighting skill will grow tremendously by participating in a regular kung fu training program. However, Ving Tsun Kung Fu isn’t easy to learn, even with all this help. If you’re in a regular training program and want to improve your progress, private lessons are a great way to do it. This is addressed in greater detail in the following section.
If regular training programs don’t fit your schedule, or if you have specific objectives or needs that are more effectively addressed with the private lesson format, you may opt to train in a program that includes self-study and periodic private lessons with a sifu or an instructor. If accepted into a private lesson program, a student will get more personalized attention, greater customization of training sessions and homework for your particular goals and challenges. Private lessons can also include more hands-on training with a Ving Tsun advanced expert or master. With a regular schedule of private lessons to inform their practice, a disciplined student who practices on their own can make great progress in the Ving Tsun system on the path to mastery.
At the Richmond Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy and some Moy Tung branch schools, a number of different instructors are available for private lessons in Ving Tsun (wing chun), including Grandmaster Moy Tung, on a select basis. This means you can opt to work with the same instructor or different ones. Working with the same person means you get to invest more lesson time and energy working with someone who is getting more familiar with you as a client, and your personal needs and challenges; in an ongoing program of private lessons, each one informs the next, with the cumulative benefit of shared experience.

Ving Tsun Private Lessons as Supplement to Kung Fu Class Training
Like tutoring, a program of kung fu private lessons can assist with progress in a regular Ving Tsun (wing chun) class-training program. The Ving Tsun system is simple to practice, but difficult to master. Some of the most effective training methods, principles and details may seem obscure, contradictory, confusing and/or elusive without the right instruction. Even with the considerable instruction and help one receives in the regular martial arts class environment, Ving Tsun Kung Fu training can be challenging and frustrating. Private lessons can help you train more effectively, deepening your understanding and accelerating your progress, whether you are a new or long-time student.
If there are questions you’ve been wrestling with for some time, or you have something in particular you want to physically work on, or mentally work through, with your sifu or an instructor, a private kung fu lesson can be an appropriate and respectful time to do so. In the private lesson format, you and your teacher can spend an hour or two training and discussing kung fu in greater depth than possible in a regular class setting.
A student doesn’t need to work hands-on with their sifu or an instructor to effectively learn kung fu, but touching hands with your sifu helps you know and understand the source of your kung fu better, in addition to exposing you to higher level kung fu form and energy. Touching hands also helps your sifu understand your kung fu better. In private lessons you will learn a great deal of useful information, and your teacher will learn about you and your goals for training, and this may happen through the hands or feet, other physical demonstrations, and verbal communication.
In getting to know you better, your teacher can better recommend details and exercises for you to work on, in the session and on your own, that will help you develop your kung fu to higher levels more efficiently and effectively. You will get to know your sifu better as a person as well, as the human being and as the source of the Ving Tsun system that is teaching you Kung Fu. You will discover your own kung fu more as you get to know its source.
A Moy Tung sifu has valuable information to share with you about Ving Tsun Kung Fu. If you are beginning in your kung fu training, a qualified sifu will put you on the right path and help you stay on it. If you are refining advanced levels, a Moy Tung sifu can help you complete your training in the Ving Tsun system.
