Kung Fu Nova
Kung Fu NoVa serves the community in Northern Virginia. We teach the Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu system, in the Moy Tung clan of the Moy Yat family in the Yip Man (Ip Man) lineage.
Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu Benefits
Ving Tsun (wing chun) Kung Fu is efficient and effective for self-defense. Training is challenging and interesting, and it develops discipline, health, fitness and confidence. You and/or your kids will gain practical skills – kung fu may keep you out of trouble, or save your life facing it.
Ving Tsun is simple and direct; no wasted effort. With Ving Tsun’s unique centerline training, it’s possible to block and hit at the same time. We train the legs to be strong, so you can stay on your feet in a fight and deliver knock-out blows. We don’t rely on size or strength; the power comes from the horse stances, and from training in a relaxed way, on centerline.

Ving Tsun Training
Kung Fu NoVa Ving Tsun training is traditional and authentic, relaxed and informal. No belts, bowing, yelling, tournaments, high-kicking or wrestling. We help you find your way through the Ving Tsun system, but the work you do is your own real kung fu.
Regular class training, private lessons and workshops can include Ving Tsun’s complete system of forms and Chi Sao (‘Sticking Hands’ – not sparring), as well as more in-depth study of practical applications – see the Intro page to book now or more info.
You can train Ving Tsun as a fun hobby or a path to mastery. With one year of regular practice you will have a solid kung fu foundation. In 2-4 years, you can be an expert. With 5-10 years of hard work, you can be a sifu and make a rewarding career from teaching an invaluable martial art.
‘Wa ha jun hung fung’ – Ving Tsun Kung Fu is ‘to make the whole nation strong’. Ving Tsun training is good for you, and for your community.
