Kung Fu at Moy Yee San Jong Moy Yee San Jong 1 Photo

Sifu Henry Moy Yee (“Sifu”) began learning Ving Tsun from Grandmaster Moy Yat as a teenager in Hong Kong and continued to study under him until his death in 2001. Today Sifu teaches his students and disciples the Ving Tsun passed down to him by Moy Yat in the traditional Chinese style.

Classes:

  • Ving Tsun — The curriculum is comprised of three “empty hand” forms: Siu Nim Tau (“Little Idea”), Chum Kiu (“Searching Bridge”), and Biu Ji (“Shooting Fingers”). Advanced students learn Muk Yan Jong (“Wooden Dummy”), Luk Dim Bun Gwun (“Six and a Half Point Pole”) and Bat Jaam Dou (“Eight Cut Knives”). Students also participate in partner drills designed to help them master important techniques for self-defense. San Sau drills, or “Sticky Hands,” teach the practical applications of Ving Tsun by breaking down individual fighting techniques and drilling them with a partner;
  • The Kung Fu Kids Class introduces students (must be ages 8 and up) to the Shaolin Fist and Ving Tsun styles of Chinese Kung Fu;
  • Disciple Class — It was created for serious students who have made a commitment to Sifu and have been accepted as his disciples. It provides an opportunity for these students to deepen their knowledge of Kung Fu by learning many different styles and forms of martial arts, including weapons training.
