Every week, we spend time making sure the more advanced students get the chance to dig into their training and really see where the rubber meets the road. How do they apply techniques under increasing levels of pressure. Before anyone dons protective gear, they try things out slow and gradually build up speed. Everything is analyzed and examined. What works? Why does it work? What didn’t work and why not? Take it apart. Break it down. Make your ving tsun your own.
