One advantage of martial arts training is that while improving your health and fitness you are also learning self defense and control. Another advantage is that you develop a sense of relaxation, inner peace, and well-being.
Although historically rooted, Ving Tsun Kung Fu training is well suited to the desires and goals of people in modern society. Due to its amazing efficiency and effectiveness, a dedicated student can become competent in a short time. Moreover, because the system’s techniques do not rely on physical strength, it is ideal for all individuals (including women and children) regardless of their physical build.
Known as “the thinking person’s kung fu,” an underlying principle of the Ving Tsun system is to utilize the most economic physical movements to achieve maximum effectiveness against other martial arts systems or street combatants. This principle is manifested in a student’s ability to utilize a number of devastating hand and foot techniques, to employ simultaneous offense and defense, and to engage hand-trapping skills.
The Omaha School incorporates only the most authentic and traditional Ving Tsun training methods to facilitate the development of the highest level of martial skill.
