Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Kung Fu
With only a few techniques and based on scientific principles Ving Tsun is an art that allows a smaller person to overcome or re-direct the power of a larger opponent. By using techniques to stop an attack and simultaneously counter-attack, a person can follow the 3 main principles which are to save time, save movement, and save energy. Using these principles we strive to prove 2 theories.
Straight Line Theory:
• Fact - The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
• Theory - Using the shortest distance, straight line strikes will reach the target first, and when delivered with enough speed and power, the circular attacks of an opponent will no longer matter.
• The centerline is a line that projects out from the vertical plane that runs down the center of the body.
• Theory - As long as you attack and defend through the centerline, you will be in the most advantageous position. Once you occupy the centerline, your opponent must then leave the centerline in order to attack, thus allowing you to apply the straight line theory.
Our Ving Tsun Lineage can be traced directly back to the Great Grandmaster Ip Man.
