Women’s Kung Fu Self Defense Classes

The Ving Tsun Self Defense Academy is excited to announce a new ving tsun (wing chun) kung fu self defense class just for women! Learning kung fu not only builds self defense skills but also develops fitness, strength, patience, determination. (It’s also a great stress reliever!)

We know it can be intimidating to walk into a martial arts school. That’s why we’re now offering a class just for ladies. You’ll get the same excellent instruction as in our open classes but being in an all female self defense class makes getting started fun and easy.

The VSTDA is dedicated to helping anyone who wants to learn ving tsun (wing chun) kung fu self defense, to be able to  learn it. It’s important to get access to classes where you can feel comfortable and really able to learn. That’s our goal at the Ving Tsun Self Defense Academy.

Whether you’re brand new to kung fu or have trained in a martial art before, you’re welcome here. This class will emphasize solid fundamental wing chun kung fu skills and practical self defense applications. Questions are highly encouraged. Our school atmosphere is friendly, non-competitive and familial. We want you to understand exactly what you’re learning and how to apply it. As you learn the basics in this simple, highly effective self defense system, you’ll gain confidence and skills that will prepare you to step out more safely.

Classes meet Saturdays, 11am – noon starting in December so you can get a jump start on your 2015 resolutions! Tuition is just $80/month. You can also try out a drop in class for $25.
Drop Sifu Matt an email or call the school to learn more and sign up. And bring a buddy! It’s always more fun to train with a friend.

Ving Tsun Meets Shakespeare

Sifu Matt and some of the guys went to see Rok Teasley, a student at the academy, perform in MacSith. After the show, Sifu and the students did a little demo for the cast.

It was a great night. The play was wonderful and sharing martial arts info with true enthusiasts was a lot of fun.

We talked about the origins of ving tsun – myths and likely realities.

Red Boat Opera and how ving tsun if applied to MacSith would have made the play way too short by making the fight scenes happen too darn quick!

We also shot a little video, 8 short clips, which you can catch on YouTube.

Thanks so much to Orion Couling, director of MacSith and Rok Teasley for inviting us in. Break a leg you guys!
