Ving Tsun (or “Wing Chun”) is regarded by many as one of the most effective forms of self-defense. It is a martial arts system known for its economy of motion and efficiency. Every technique has been designed to follow principles that enable a smaller, weaker person to defeat a larger, stronger opponent.
Sifu Henry Moy Yee (“Sifu”) began learning Ving Tsun from Grandmaster Moy Yat as a teenager in Hong Kong and continued to study under him until his death in 2001. Today Sifu teaches his students and disciples the Ving Tsun passed down to him by Moy Yat in the traditional Chinese style, which stresses the values of loyalty, discipline, patience, physical conditioning, and technical proficiency.
The curriculum is comprised of three “empty hand” forms: Siu Nim Tau (“Little Idea”), Chum Kiu (“Searching Bridge”), and Biu Ji (“Shooting Fingers”). Advanced students learn Muk Yan Jong (“Wooden Dummy”), Luk Dim Bun Gwun (“Six and a Half Point Pole”) and Bat Jaam Dou (“Eight Cut Knives”).
Students also participate in partner drills designed to help them master important techniques for self-defense. San Sau drills teach the practical applications of Ving Tsun by breaking down individual fighting techniques and drilling them with a partner. Chi Sau, or “Sticky Hands,” refines techniques by developing offensive and defensive reflexes against a resisting opponent.
Moy Yee San Jong offers students an opportunity to learn the art of Ving Tsun as it has been handed down from generation to generation in the direct lineage of Yip Man. Sifu Henry Moy’s traditional method and philosophy of teaching is essential to ensure that Ving Tsun continues to be passed down to future generations its most pure and unmodified form.
