Who can learn Kung Fu?
Quite simply, anyone can learn Kung Fu. The founding of the Ving Tsun System is attributed to two women: Ng Moi, a Buddhist nun from the Shaolin Temple, and Yim Ving Tsun, her first disciple. These women created a system that has proven itself, time and again since its inception, to be effective regardless of size and strength. People of all sizes, ages, and body types have learned Ving Tsun through the years, and it has served them well regardless of their physical differences. Our school offers classes for adults and children on various schedules. Interested parties may enjoy a FREE introductory lesson. If you have ever wondered, "Can Kung Fu really work for me?" we invite you to come in and find out.
What should I expect at my first class?
In martial arts training, it is wise to never commit yourself to certain expectations. However, when attending a class in the Moy Yat Kung Fu Family, certain things come standard. We train the traditional Ving Tsun Kung Fu System as it was passed down to us, unaltered through the generations. This remarkably concise and effective system is comprised of a series of forms, two-person drills, and conditioning exercises. The bulk of a student's training is carried out one-on-one in the form of two-person drills with another partner. These drills emphasize constant contact with an opponent/partner and the use of technique and relaxation in blocking and striking. Classes have a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere and are driven by student interactions under the guidance of a Sifu or senior instructor. Questions are welcome, but students are encouraged to seek answers not through constant dialogue, but through constant practice of forms and techniques.
What should I wear to my first class?
Enter any school in the Moy Yat Family Association, and you will see pretty much the same thing: students in uniform practicing their techniques with one another. However, our uniform is very simple. It consists of the school's t-shirt, black "Kung Fu Pants", and flat-soled shoes. You will be able to purchase a uniform when you enroll in classes, but for your first class, you can simply wear your own t-shirt (short-sleeves), comfortable athletic pants, and clean workout shoes. It is always respectful to wear shoes that don't bring dirt (and, in the winter, sand and salt) onto the workout floor.
