Learning the basic moves correctly from a qualified instructor is an essential thing for your success in your Ving Tsun future.


Copying Fancy moves are for show and have no practical value when in action.

A student¡¦s progress is counted by lessons that they have taken, but ¡¨NOT BY YEARS¡§.




Classes are available to men and women of all age, regardless of physical condition. Students are taught in a safe, effective, friendly and supportive environment in a progressive manner based on individual needs.

Our curriculum focuses on building a solid foundation as a basis for consistent progress toward more intensive training and advanced levels.

The objective of Classical Ving Tsun training is not solely on techniques and forms. We want to promote the understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of Ving Tsun and how to apply them in a realistic approach to self defence and day-to-day living.

Every student will get good attention and be well looked after, in a very disciplined manner so they will have full concentration to learn Classical Ving Tsun properly.

COURSES - Sil Nim Tao, Chum Kil, Bill Jee, Wooden Dummy, Long pole, and Butterfly knives




Since the popularity of the films about Yip Man, we have received many unhappy VT, WC practitioner¡¦s complaints from all over the world of their bad experiences regarding the learning of the Dummy, Pole and Knives which are taught by modified or imitation VT WC instructors, even including some of Yip Man's students.


They are all different from each other. Some of them have admitted that half of the moves are of their own invention.


After a long observation GM. V. Kan has eventually decided to teach the original version, the only version that he knows which he learnt from his Sifu YIP MAN, to all  serious VT WT practitioners in the world, in order to preserve the genuine - YIP MAN CLASSICAL VING TSUN KUNG FU. Complete the system CORRECTLY and have peace of MIND.

The weapons have not much practical value nowadays - it¡¦s more for show. That¡¦s why they are the last thing to learn in the VKVT system. Still Grandmaster Victor Kan continues to teach the real original version of the weapons to serious VT practitioners so they will not mislearn.

* Note: After taking the course (eg. Butterfly Knives ), it does not mean that one has become a VKVT 10 grade student or qualified to teach.
