Pure Ving Tsun

By Aaron Vyvial | August 2, 2017

Ving Tsun Kung Fu is an efficient and highly effective system of self-defense in which a student can become competent in a relatively short time. Originally developed in southern China, Ving Tsun is a traditional martial art, yet its unique training methods and principles make it ideal for the modern world. Ving Tsun’s specialty is close contact combat, using quick punches and kicks with simultaneous defense. The student must learn to deliver the correct amount of energy, while staying relaxed whenever possible. Ving Tsun training develops proper body structure, posture, and reflexes based on centerline theory rather than relying on physical strength alone, allowing smaller people to overcome bigger stronger opponents.
