Students sat down together at Sushi Ichiban Restaurant to share a meal and camaraderie and to bid a fond (temporary) farewell to one of their kung fu brothers, Airman Travis Crane, who will be spending the next three years in Korea and Japan. In addition to enjoying sushi and sake, students presented Travis with a small gift to remind him of Omaha as he serves overseas.
Students from the Omaha Moy Yat Ving Tsun Kung Fu school visited the school in Iowa City for three days of training and social activities. Departing on Friday, January 14th, students from Omaha worked out with students from Iowa City in their regularly scheduled class, before enjoying an evening out. On Saturday, students from Omaha participated in regularly and specially scheduled classes at the Iowa City school. Sunday gave the Omaha students another opportunity to work out with their “kung fu cousins” and to share a meal before heading back to Omaha. The goal of the trip was to increase a student’s exposure to the many faces of Ving Tsun Kung Fu by providing an opportunity to train with students from another Moy Yat Kung Fu school. Such exposure in another way a student may increase his understanding of Ving Tsun Kung Fu.
Students sat down together at Big Fred’s Pizza Garden, an Omaha institution, to share a meal and camaraderie to celebrate the holiday season. In addition to eating, students swapped kung fu stories, enjoyed a few jokes, and presented their sifu with a gift.
Master Moy Yat Tung visited the Omaha school once again to conduct a weekend of workouts with his “grand students.” The weekend workout built upon the “kung fu conversation” Master Moy Yat Tung began during his visit to Omaha in July 2003, and continued in April 2004, including a detail-intensive discussion of Ving Tsun’s first three forms and an interactive discussion of how to approach the study of Ving Tsun. Students from Detroit, MI, Burlington, VT, Iowa City, IA, Lincoln, NE, Milwaukee, WI, Chicago, IL, and Virginia Beach, VA, attended.
Ving Tsun students from across the United States gathered in Virginia
Beach for a week of training conducted under the supervision of Master
Moy Yat Tung. The Omaha School was represented. Students participated
in extensive conditioning exercises, forms training, and two-man
workouts (including practicing forms and playing chi sao at the beach).
