1. IMPROVE AND MAINTAIN A STRONG, FLEXIBLE BODY

Ving tsun kung fu works the entire body, greatly improving its usefulness. I’m not talking about those mundane music-thumping cardio classes. Although they’re valuable, I’m talking about something else. Our cardio workouts come from doing kung fu so the workouts bring additional value. Imagine never being off-balance or slipping. Imagine moving effortlessly and fluidly, in a relaxed manner without tension. Imagine the long-term benefits of good posture. Imagine having flexibility and strength so that accidentally stepping in a pothole does not cause injury. Imagine almost superhuman reflexes – dropping a knife or piece of food and having the time to decide whether to catch or evade. The muscles developed during ving tsun become elongated because as we build muscle, we also stretch. We work the whole body synergistically, working every joint, muscle and fiber and improving all your body’s functions. This helps your muscles heal and grow. If you have back, leg, or joint problems then ving tsun acts much like physiotherapy – it will help correct those chronic problems and keep them fixed.

2. TO SEE A CHANGE, YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE

If you’re motivated to improve any part of your life, or are interested in any of the benefits listed here, you have a choice between two options. The first is to do nothing. However, if you’re already doing nothing and you don’t have the benefits listed here, then I suggest that doing nothing is not working. It’s not making you happy. The alternative is to come on out and try something different. We have 6 classes a week, and a price plan that fits your needs. If you want something different, you’ll have to do something different so come on out and try it free for a week.

3. DEFEND YOURSELF, YOUR FRIENDS, & LOVED ONES

The vast majority of people who study martial arts do so in order to learn how to defend themselves and their loved ones. They have determined that not having the risks are just too high. After taking our ving tsun classes for just 6 months, you will be applying self-defense techniques in our full-speed sparring known as “sticking hands”. You will be amazed at the skills you will have learned in such a short time. And quite simply, the more you train with us, the better your chances of success in an altercation.

When you learn hand to hand self-defense, there is no reliance on an external weapon. Your primary weapon is always…well…handy. There’s no time to go searching through your purse or pockets trying to retrieve a weapon – with our training your primary weapon is always with you and always available at an instant’s notice. Imagine walking around with two hammers at all times.

4. MAKE MORE MONEY AND HAVE HIGH QUALITY FRIENDSHIPS

Sound impossible? It’s true. With ving tsun you will have a stronger, healthier body. Your movements will be fluid and eloquent. You will learn how to defend yourself. Your confidence will soar. You will be able to stand up for yourself and lead the way for others. You will gain the mental power to endure hard times. With a strong sense of discipline, you will be able to set goals and achieve things others cannot. Your peers and boss will notice your new capabilities. You will have controlled your ego and will therefore have self-control, even in difficult situations. This will reduce stress and further contribute to your relaxed, comfortable demeanor. These are the skills of leaders – and these skills are taught in our ving tsun class.

5. TEACH AND INSPIRE OTHERS

Through your training and personal growth students and peers will look to you as a natural source of inspiration. Your skills will continue to grow with age and you will maintain a high quality of life. Others will recognize your achievements and will look to you to learn how to improve the quality of their own lives.

6. GROW SPIRITUALLY AND PERSONALLY

The need for material assets, power, fame, recognition, success, and fortune can cause a great deal stress and frustration. Often to deal with the problems caused by these needs many people turn towards spiritual endeavors. Ving tsun will provide you with a form of moving meditation that will relax the body and mind. As you strive for simpler movements and a calmer mind you will find yourself gravitating toward a simpler more enjoyable life. Your happiness will come from within; from family and friends instead of external assets or gratification. Soon you will experience a phenomenon us martial artists know as “Wu Wei” . the way of less effort; and the less you strive to grab power, fame and recognition the more those doors will open up. Our school will teach you this and many other methods for finding peace and relaxation.

7. MAKE FRIENDS, ENJOY COMERADERIE

Different arts attract different people. The more aggressive sport arts will obviously attract a different group than something softer. If you’re looking for a great group of peers who will support and help your growth, you’re looking in the right place. At our school you will forge deep connections with your fellow students as you progress through your skills. You will discover a second family who is always there to help, both during and after class. You’ll also discover that your kung fu training will make you a more balanced, confident and peaceful individual – just the type of person others want to be around.

8. LEARN SOMETHING NEW AND VALUABLE EVERY DAY

Keep your brain and body active. We guarantee that you’ll learn something new each day. You’ll never stop growing as long as you don’t stop training. The path of real kung fu is long and brings unending benefits. Train, stay active, and never be bored. Some styles “top out” after a few years and then it’s just repetition of the same old stuff. At our school you will never stop learning the finer details of each movement. You’ll continue to improve – in our style of ving tsun you get better as you get older. You’ll have more finesse and will move more efficiently and effectively than those who are younger and have less training.

9. LEARN THE WHOLE SYSTEM AS FAST AS YOU CAN

Move along at the pace that’s right for you. The more you train, the faster you’ll improve. However, if you choose to take your time, that’s alright too. Each person has his or her own rhythm and we can accomodate that with our time-tested curriculum.

10. RELIEVE STRESS THROUGH MOVING MEDITATION

Our chi sau drill is guaranteed to focus the mind. Our siu lim tau form will calm the mind. Together they will train the two best ways to relieve stress from your mind. If you prefer to relieve stress by engaging in a full-body sweaty workout, our second form and mai san jong sparring will do the trick!

11. FILL THE VOID

Do you have the feeling something is missing but you don’t know what it is? That void you feel comes from an unsatisfied need for purpose, a need for something bigger and more beneficial to you and your family that what you’re doing now. Throughout history kung fu has been used to fill exactly those types of voids by learning how to reduce the need on those things that cause unhappiness. By doing this, a person feels more complete and in control of his or her life.

12. VERY AFFORDABLE – CONVENIENT CLASS TIMES

We operate similar to a non-profit, where education is our priority and the money you spend goes back into improving your learning environment – so it works twice as hard. Our classes start at a low $10 and go down from there. If you sign up for a year it will can cost as little as $60/month. There are classes 3 days a week too! Think of what you do now with your money and you will likely find that it’s been spent on things that are less beneficial than ving tsun kung fu. We keep our prices low so that high quality ving tsun kung fu can be accessible to everybody.
