Following their in-class training, students met to share a meal to celebrate and to wish good luck to one of their kung fu brothers, Tim Dinin, who will be (temporarily) leaving the School to enroll this Fall at Hofstra Law School in Long Island, NY. In addition to enjoying each other’s company, students ate Chinese take out from one of Tim’s favorite restaurants, China Road.
Students from the Omaha Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu school joined students from Moy Yat schools from around the country in visiting the school in Detroit, MI for three days of kung fu training and social activities. The weekend workout provided another opportunity for Omaha’s Ving Tsun community to receive kung fu instruction directly from Grandmaster Moy Tung and his direct disciples (including Master Moy Yat Tung as well as several sifus from the Richmond Kung Fu Academy). Topics included a discussion of Ving Tsun’s jong and kwan forms.
Sisuk Bart Yates, a senior disciple of Master Moy Yat Tung, visited the Omaha school for a weekend of kung fu workouts. The workouts gave Omaha’s Ving Tsun community another opportunity to train with an experienced kung fu practitioner. In addition to training kung fu, Sisuk Yates is the author of two works of fiction, including the recently published novel “The Brothers Bishop,” and is the recipient of the 2004 Alex Award from the American Library Association.
