I came to Moy Tung Kung Fu Academy while searching for a self-defense class appropriate for an older adult female. I was struggling with some lasting effects from an abusive relationship, and a friend suggested Ving Tsun Kung Fu. I am not an athletic person, and had never even considered learning a martial art, so I was initially very nervous about trying it out. As it turned out, Ving Tsun Kung Fu was a perfect choice for me as it teaches skills that enable a physically smaller or weaker person to defend against or disable a larger or stronger person.
Beginning with the first session, each class has taught or trained a practical skill that can be immediately used. The training workouts are challenging and have helped me to build strength as well as skill and balance. The instructors are patient and encouraging when I need it, but also challenge me to stretch myself physically and mentally. Training at Moy Tung has not only taught me practical self-defense skills and made me physically stronger, it has also given me more self-confidence and assertiveness, and helped me to be more comfortable in challenging situations.
Whether you want to build strength and skill, or discipline and self-confidence, Moy Tung Kung Fu Academy is a great place to learn and train.
