Ving Tsun Kung Fu is a southern Shaolin martial art emphasizing in-close combat, the application of sound principles, and training attributes and skills over technique. The legend of Ving Tsun states that it was founded roughly 400 years ago by a female Shaolin monk named Ng Mui after she observed a snake and a crane engaged in combat. She first taught this new system to a young girl named Yim Ving Tsun, and so named the system after her.
In modern times Ving Tsun was made famous by Grand Master Yip Man and his most famous student the late Bruce Lee. Master Lee later went on to develop his own style called Jeet Kune Do; which was heavily influenced by Ving Tsun.
In application Ving Tsun is very aggressive utilizing continuous hand strikes and low kicks. The Ving Tsun practitioner utilizes tactile sensitivity to read his opponents energy and quickly respond to any threat in the most efficient manner possible. The ability to do this is developed through an exercise called Chi-Sao, which is unique to Ving Tsun and is the core of Ving Tsun training.
Ving Tsun does not require more than average strength and can be practiced well into ones later years. It develops relaxation, coordination, balance, timing, and sensitivity. With Ving Tsun training we realize that skilled technique based on sound principles can conquer brute strength.
