Our classes focus on three main areas: conditioning, technique refinement, and fighting applications. Through repetition we program our bodies to respond automatically and subconsciously to incoming threats. The result is Self Defense that actually works when you need it.
Ving Tsun, the system we teach, is an efficient and highly effective system of self-defense in which a student can become competent in a relatively short time. Ving Tsun’s specialty is close contact combat, using powerful punches and kicks with simultaneous defense. Students learn to deliver knock out power, 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.
Most self defense programs focus on tricks or canned responses to generic attacks. At our school we focus on students gaining their own experience of which techniques work for them based upon their own body structure. By practicing those techniques in a variety of situations, with different training partners, and high repetition, a student develops confidence in their ability to actually defend themselves.
