About Ving Tsun Kung Fu


Ving Tsun Kung Fu (also spelled Wing Chun) is a Chinese martial art system. Although its origins are shrouded in myth and legend, our oral tradition tells us that the Ving Tsun system was developed by a woman named Ng Mui, who was a Buddhist nun, sometime before the American Revolution. She is said to have taught it to a young woman named Yim Ving Tsun, after whom the system is named.

The earliest known historical figures who practiced Ving Tsun were members of a Red Junk Opera Company, who toured by boat performing Chinese Opera. They introduced Ving Tsun to a town in southern China called Fat San, where it was eventually taught to the legendary sifu Yip Man. It was he that was destined to teach Ving Tsun publicly for the first time, and to lead the Ving Tsun system from 1949 until his death in 1972. Today, Ving Tsun is practiced internationally and has become one of the most popular styles of martial art in the world.


The Thinking Person’s Martial Art


Ving Tsun is often referred to as the “Thinking Person’s Martial Art.” The reason for this is simple. Ving Tsun is based on scientific principles and theories. Among these are the principles of economy of movement (which makes Ving Tsun very fast, because it is efficient) and economy of energy (which makes Ving Tsun less dependent upon physical strength). The Ving Tsun system is sensible, practical, interesting and fun to learn.

Formal family style portraits (like those above) are the traditional way that Chinese Kung Fu teachers certify their students. Posing for a formal portrait is like saying to the world: “This is my family.”
