THE WONG WAY
Ving Tsun is one of the earliest forms of martial arts, having been constantly refined and adapted over its 300 years of existence. Ving Tsun differs significantly from other martial art styles of its time in its theory, the structure of its movements and means of generating force. Ving Tsun focuses on the science of fighting, eliminating unnecessary movements to overcome and generate power in the most Simple, Direct, and Efficient way.
Ving Tsun is a close-range system which uses technique and skill rather than physical strength. Its primary focus is controlling the opponents attack and balance, training you to keep close and suffocate the attacker and utilise his or her movements to dominate the situation, putting a ving tsun fighter at an advantage as this makes it difficult for the opponent to generate any real power at such close range.
The General Concept of Ving Tsun is to learn to strike and block simultaneously to end the fight as quickly as possible.
Ving Tsun is made up 3 empty hand forms ‘Siu Nim Tau’, ‘Chum Kiu’, and ‘Biu Ji’, and the ‘Muk Yan Jong’ wooden dummy form. The Ving Tsun system also incorporates two weapon forms:
‘Luk Dim Boon Gwan’ – “Six and a half point pole” form.
‘Baat Jaam Do’ – “Eight slash knife” form.
Training in Hong Kong, under the late Master Yip Man, also acknowledged for the teacher of Bruce Lee. Sifu Wong Shun Leung earned the name ‘The king of the talking hands’ for testing his skills throughout the streets of Hong Kong, fighting countless opponents from numerous styles, leaving his legacy with an undefeated record.
Ving Tsun is a practical way for fighting in the streets and learning to cope with ‘real life’
situations. It is not a sport, it is real life fighting where there are no rules or restrictions, and your life is hanging in the balance.
At WSL Geelong Ving Tsun, we teach students the most SIMPLE, DIRECT and EFFICENT way of fighting. Preparing our students to face the tough reality of physical violence.
Ving Tsun is a skill and for a good practitioner it should be second nature, as soon as the opponent offers an opening, the hand should attack instantaneously. If you have to think about it, you have already lost.
This is ‘The Wong Way’ of Ving Tsun Gung fu.
I started Martial Arts in 1984 when I was 8 years old. I started at "Macedon Karate School" in Melbourne, which was run by Steve Kotevski. I trained there until I moved away from Melbourne in 1991. I took a break from Martial Arts and focused on weight training. But my love for Martial Arts couldn't keep me away.
In 2009 I begun my training at local Ving Tsun School in Geelong where I trained under Terry Hayden and started learning the Wong Shun Leung system of Ving Tsun. Terry Hayden was a student of David Peterson who was one of the top students of Wong Shun Leung system.
In 2012 I achieved Instructor status and took over teaching at the school as Terry retired from teaching Ving Tsun. I have trained with many other instructors from the Wong Shun Leung Lineage in Australia and around the World.
