New Student Begins Ving Tsun Journey

It’s always fun and exciting when a new student begins their study of Ving Tsun.














This was especially true this evening when Donald got started this evening. Donald’s uncle is the owner of the  Chi Cafe in Chinatown, one of our very favorite spots to eat. They have terrific Hong Kong style food and are open till all hours. That means you can get late night congee any time you want!








Donald said he’s wanted to study for a while but between work and school, he had to wait until today.

Here’s what his first lesson looked like. (Pretty relaxed and friendly atmosphere, just like at the VTAA in Hong Kong.

First Sifu Matt taught him the opening to Siu Lim Tau…








Step by step, making little adjustments along the way.








Donald was focused all night and worked really hard.
It was easy to see how much he was enjoying learning at last.








The other students were glad to help of course. Humberto worked on punching with him.












Finally! Time to relax before heading out. Welcome to Ving Tsun, Donald! Glad to have you in the Matt Johnson Ving Tsun family.

Maybe you might want to try Ving Tsun too?
