The Parallels Between Krav Maga and Ving Tsun What is Krav Maga? Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations, extreme efficiency, and brutal counter-attacks. The original concept of Krav Maga was to take the most simple and practical techniques of other fighting styles and to make them rapidly teachable to military conscripts. What is Ving Tsun? Ving Tsun was developed with the purpose of quickly training battle-field-ready warriors, the fighting and military masters drew from their collective experience to flush out only the best, most effective principles, strategies and techniques to form the Ving Tsun system.
Mixed Martial Arts Have Been Around for a Long Time Over 6,000 years ago the earliest form of a mixed martial art was invented in ancient China by Han Chinese military generals and soldiers. During the late 1960s to early 1970s, the concept of combining the elements of multiple martial arts was popularized in the west by Bruce Lee. In 2004, UFC President Dana White would call Lee the “father of mixed martial arts.
Our classes focus on three main areas: conditioning, technique refinement, and fighting applications. Through repetition we program our bodies to respond automatically and subconsciously to incoming threats. The result is Self Defense that actually works when you need it. Ving Tsun, the system we teach, is an efficient and highly effective system of self-defense in which a student can become competent in a relatively short time. Ving Tsun’s specialty is close contact combat, using powerful punches and kicks with simultaneous defense.
Centerline Technique“Dominate the centerline; simultaneous block/trap and attack.” Is Wing Chun Effective? The short answer is YES, absolutely. To be clear, however, Wing Chun is not a style of fighting, but rather a system used to develop fighting skills. The system itself is extremely effective at developing your skill in combat and self defense. Like any other curriculum the skill of each individual student will vary, but for the serious and diligent student (let’s hope that this is you), the study of the Wing Chun system will develop an automatic self defense reflex.
