Sifu Matt Featured in 2City News

Sifu Matt Johnson and the Ving Tsun Self Defense Academy is in the news!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently, the local news group 2City News conducted a three-part interview with Sifu Matt Johnson. Here is part one, in which Sifu gives the audience a basic grounding in what ving tsun is and why it’s so effective for self defense.

The article focuses as well on the problem of understaffed, under-served urban areas in which residents often feel they must fend for themselves:

Check out the rest of the article and the first video segment. And of course, stay tuned for part two, tomorrow!
Thanks to Zack Isaacs and the whole 2City crew for focusing on the academy and such an urgent set of security and self defense issues. As one of the very few U.S. schools with direct links to the Ip Man lineage of Ving Tsun/Wing Chun, we are dedicated to teaching ving tsun in it’s purest form to those who wish to defend themselves and their loved ones. We extend an invitation to anyone who may be interested to come in for an interview, watch a class and if interested, attend up to a week of classes free of charge, to make sure the school is a good fit for you and your self defense goals.

Covering Ving Tsun Basics

Today at the VTSDA, everyone worked their basics of Matt Johnson Ving Tsun. It’s very important to review the basics, to keep a beginner’s mind for every form. This way, we build a strong foundation upon which to build our self defense. If you ever need it, this kind of practice means your Ving Tsun will be there for you. Definitely you know what you’re ving tsun to be “guess so.” Right?

Matt Johnson Ving Tsun: Forms and Chi Sau

Tonight at the VTSDA, we were a little all over the place. We started with forms and went to chi sau.

Had a visitor, who’d heard about us from this month’s 2nd Friday events.

Here’s what it looked like.

Like what you see, get in touch with us to come for an interview and see if this might be the school for you. Still just dipping your toe in the water, join other nice folks and subscribe to stay current with self defense at the VTSDA.

 

Biu Gee Practice

Robert training Siu Lim Tau

Robert, a student at the VTSDA manages a rigorous work and school schedule but always makes time to train his ving tsun. He came in the other night on a break from his pre-graduation grind to train the forms including this very nice work on Biu Gee, the third empty handed form of ving tsun.

He’s clearly taken to heart the message delivered by Sifu Matt on a consistent basis…that is, if you want to have good ving tsun you gotta train; busy, tired, whatever, every single day.

Nice work Robert.
