Ving Tsun Kung Fu
MARTIAL ARTS FOR SELF-DEFENSE
Ving Tsun Kung Fu (pronounced Wing Chun) is an ancient Chinese martial art that was designed in times of war as a powerful 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 more profound relaxation.
Priciples of the Art
Ving Tsun trains the martial artist in "Centerline Theory." Through forms and drills the hands are conditioned to occupy the body's centerline, the best position from which to attack and defend. Economy of motion, simultaneous attack and defense, and relaxation are also at the heart of the Ving Tsun system.
Benefits of Training
Kung fu offers a way to maintain health and fitness while learning effective self-defense. Although the public primarily thinks of kung fu as a way of fighting, Ving Tsun also promotes personal growth, and its principles apply to all aspects of life.
The Ving Tsun system has a carefully constructed set of collaborative hands-on exercises in which students are partnered to practice specific techniques with varying intensity and levels of resistance. The drills enable students to condition the body and develop effective Ving Tsun reflexes, with minimal risk of injury.
