Philosophy of Ving Tsun

Our goal of improvement is on the self: self improvement through training in mind and body conditioning to heighten awareness and reactions.

We strive to promote:

  • Self-Esteem
  • Self-Discipline
  • Self-Confidence

You will develop:

  • Self-Control
  • Self-Respect
  • Self-Defense

With the tenets of the system as guidelines, the students are taught to:

  • Respect themselves as well as others.
  • Be thoughtful, hard working and honest.
  • Have a winning spirit and confident attitude, with a desire to improve that spells success.
  • Abstain from violent behavior, even when being goaded or enticed (always keep your cool); to defend yourself only in order to preserve your safety or the safety of your loved ones.
  • Have enough pride and confidence in yourself to keep your body and mind free from pollutants, such as drugs and alcohol; to choose your friends wisely and not take part in foolish behavior; to be loyal to yourself and to your loved ones.

With this philosophy – improvement of the self – a student will develop a humble, confident attitude, dealing well with stress.

The student will develop strength through self-discipline and acquire the ability to lead himself or herself in our society in a manner that will earn respect by peers and fellow students.
